The "D" Word

Spoke to Sprout last night and he actually used the dreaded "D" word in my presence. Deployment to war! Nothing for sure, but rumors abound, things are happening. I guess my jaw-dropping silence irked him as he said "Mom...I'm in the Army". I know this is something I have to face but I don't have to face it happily. I'm not in the Army.

Gosh darn it!

sure you're in the Army -- you're just not getting paid for it LOL when someone we love is in the service, we all become a part of it...

Will keep my fingers crossed and you all in my prayers... and that's funny -- when my son told me they were talking about deployment (many, many months before we knew for sure), his remarks were exactly the same (sigh).
