We have orders

We picked up Bear's orders yesterday at the Chaplain's School. We took a very slow walk about 1/4 mile to the school, and found them with one of the school secretaries. We started the process of getting Bear's flight home on the 15th. Then we came back to the room and called the airline which I was to fly with. I did miss my flight, (it was on Monday) but they allowed us to leave the ticket open and reschedule once we get Bear's flight information from the army.

Thank you, Lord!!

Bear and I were praying hard while we were on the phone talking with Expedia and then the airline. I thought there was no way to recoup any of that lost ticket, shows you what the power of prayer can do.

He is doing an Army correspondence training right now at the Chaplain's School library, another couple of Chaplains were doing it, and needed another brain thrown into the mix to figure out some of the questions.

He is feeling better, can move around more easily, but is still moving slowly.

I've done our few dishes, made the bed, dusted everything in sight and now I'm restless, I took a walk in the beautiful sunshine and snapped a few pictures.

I've become such an HGTV junkie; just ask me if you are planning to move or need help staging your home, I could tell you more than you'd ever want to know, I'm sure.

I'm switching to Food Network this morning, there is a show about Chinese Hot Pots, simmering pots of broth with veggies and meats that you cook quickly in the broth. Yumm-O! Emeril is so weird, he could be a Mafia Don. Since we don't have cable, I guess I've never seen him in action, he cracks me up! I'd hate to get on his bad side for sure.

Ok, enough babble, please pray for our flight home, so that I can piggy-back on Bear's flight, with all these airline bankruptcies, I'm afraid the flight will be all filled up by the time payday rolls around and I can pay for the flight.

Oh, on another note, this week I have met quite a few people who read my blog but have never commented. I'd love to get to know you better. If you read this, please comment and tell me you are out there, blogging is worthwhile to me if I know someone is reading.

Just click on the blue "comments" link at the bottom of the post, if you don't have an account, you may post anonymously, just sign your name (first name is fine.)

Thanks! I'd love to know that someone is reading out there.

I'm here, too. Jessica K. from CHBOLC. Had a chance to check out my blog, yet? in case you lost it. Oh, and did you send me those notes on the Guard and Reserves stuff? If so, I haven't found 'em yet, but then again, my inbox is a mess. Anyway, just wanted to let ya know I'm reading your blog, and I really enjoyed meeting you!

WOW! Sure can tell when Bear is home, you haven't posted since. Guess that means he won't let you sit at the computer and chat, guess now you have to do the "honey-do's"!

Meredith said...

So, I totally thought I had left you a comment like last week! Guess not. Well, praying for you. I hope you both made it home safely. Looking forward to reading another update when you get the chance.
P.S. - Dave's assistant is an expert shooter and a strong believer!! Yea!
