That time again

Posted by Debbie Gould on January 19, 2011 at 9:23 PM Comments comments (23)

It's been a while since I've been on here. Figured I'd better get back into the swing of things. Last time I posted was October of 2009, and Renee was just headed to Afghanistan. She made it through that deployment and was back home the end of May 2010.

Her transition back to a "normal" life was quite difficult this time. But like the strong woman she is, she made it happen. I think having Jadin back again helped a lot.

Renee made it safely

Renee finally IM'd me today. She made it to Bagram AFB in Afghanistan without incident. Of course her definition of 'without incident' and mine are worlds apart. When she left Florida for training in Wisconsin, they were delayed about 8 hours. Seems the plane had a bird mishap and the had to wait around for the mechanic to get there. I was indignant, lol. "This is the Air Force, Renee" I said, "they only have one plane? And 1 mechanic?"

"Guess so." she calmly replied.

My bad boy from the Hood. Really?

As most of you know, I'm on vacation in Florida visiting my daughter who is in the Air Force stationed at Hurlburt Field, in Fort Walton Beach. She lives in Navarre which is right up the road. This afternoon, my 23 year old son and his friend took my Explorer to Wal-Mart. On the way back, they were pulled over by a sherriff for speeding, 40 in a 25, right before the turn to my daughters street.

Now we live in Vermont. Hick town and all, but we are right on the boarder of NY, so my sons ...

Spring Cleaning

Let me start with a little background. My 23 year old son owns a mobile home and 9 acres of land that my husband and I sold him a year ago...

So last week my husband mentioned he should clean up the yard now that you can see the ground. That, right there, was the First mistake. Jay(my son) has been laid off work till April and has plenty of time on his hands-so not a good thing- so my husband thought Jay cleaning his yard would give him some...

I got stuck in the damn couch last night.  It was reclined and the afghan fell off the back so I got on my knees on the couch and reached down over with my arm to see if I can reach it.  Well, the damn thing reclined further, pinning my upper arm between the couch and the wall.  The more I tried to get le...

I live in a small rural town in Vermont just over the boarder of Upstate New York. The neighboring town has a small newspaper that includes the surrounding areas in their paper. In this surrounding area are three women, all named Deborah Gould. Well, the last two weeks in a row, the police beat  in the paper has noted   Deborah Gould, 41, arrested for DWI.
blah, blah, blah... 2 frigging weeks in a row. These were sepa...

Just made reservations for the July trip to Maine. Can't wait to go, there is something about the ocean that is just so soothing and calming. Jadin has finally started talking to his mother on the phone, but lately he will ask her if she's home yet.  When she says no, he's not all that interested in carrying on the conversation.  One of the nights she called and said no she wasn't ho...

Renee just called. She's getting ready to load onto the plane.  This time Jadin actually talked to her for a few minutes, hopefully it will make her feel better. He gets very excited when the phone rings, jumps up and says mommy! Then answers, says hi and hands the phone to me. SIGH  Anyway she's leaving Washington and off to Iraq.  She said it might be a couple days before she can call. Hopefully ...
