Time has come for Amanda & Johnanthon's 2 friends to go back to the line's, the one that I mentioned in one of post last week, the one that is heading off to Afghanistan has left, his family gave him a nice going away party, and the other is one of Amanda's friend heading back to Iraq, both young men left early this morning, Amanda went with her friend and his family to the airport real early this morning and just came in, I cried when he left here last night, "Annette, don't cry, I do this for you and your family, and for mine, and for country, so all of you can have what you have. I will be back in 3 or 4 months" he reminded Amanda about the Military ball, that is in Hawaii and wants to take her, break up with Chris so you can go with me,you have until November" as he smiled a huge smile and laughed, young men acting so bravely for us all, he did promise me to send me some fresh pineapple when he gets back to Hawaii, bless his heart, still thinking of others as he thinks about his country!
I woke to a bad case of allergies yesterday and today, with IBS visiting as well, the 2 together makes a real good case of bed-etis, my eyes water like I've been crying, the nose trips like I should hoke it to a water hose, and the head pounds, like I've been to a rock concert! when I called in sick over this mess, my boss said "Join the club" so I'm thinking there must be a few of us out today, I know I'll have no patient with the patients today, I know I didn't yesterday with Larry, every one else took off, smart teenagers.
Johnanthon got a PA on his CB radio, and last night as I laid in bed trying to sleep, in between sneezing, I heard "Mom, I'm on my way home" coming from the street behind right behind my house, he came in and asked if I heard him and all I could do even tho I'm not feeling good was giggle, I can just imagine what he's doing with that, I guess he went to my Mom's and step Dad's place, now, keep in mind they live in a retirement place, pulled up in front of their place and said, from the PA system, "Grandma, whats for supper? Come out with your hands up and there will be no problems" now you have to laugh at that one, she said all these people looked out their windows! Life is never dull with him around~ but me on the other hand smells trouble with that thing! Aren't you glad all of you, except for Joni, live where you live? or else who knows what he'd drive up in front of your place and say to all of you! He makes my world bright, even with allergy sensitive eyes!
