Hello everyone. Perhaps some of you have been wondering where we've been. I didn't want to put this out on the internet before, but Greg left three weeks ago for some training, so the kids and I were all alone (not really a thing to tell to the general public). I decided that I'd had enough and needed to come home, so I caught a space-a flight in a C17 cargo jet back to the States on Sunday. My friend Jillian, another Captain's wife came with us, and was a tremendous help. I couldn't have done this trip without her. It took us 4 days of waiting at the Air Force base to finally get a flight that could seat us, but it's worth it just to be home. My mom and Jonathan came to pick us up at McGuire in NJ, and I felt like I would cry with relief when I saw their car drive up. It was a long trip.
No more details right now -- I have a head cold and fever, but it's just good to be here. All I wanted was my mom. I have things that I need to do, a list of stuff to buy etc. before going back in a few weeks, but for right now I think I'll just hibernate for a little while.
I'll try to post pictures of the kids etc. soon, but for now I just need to lie down. It's good to be home.
