When Joe gets home initially, there is always so much to do/catch up on. It finally gets relaxing after the first week or so. So- we're there. It's relaxing to come home to him and vice versa. Our schedules still clash, but we deal. He was home alone the last three nights while I was in PA for work. And that will happen again next week. It's a bit sad with the deployment looming in the distance- but it's work and we have to pay our bills. We jump on our webcams and talk through SKYPE-so that's fun. We actually figured out how to play WOW while I was away. Not the same as playing in the same room-but it was close enough.
We had a little dramatic situation on our end with the Amazon Kindle this past trip, but I'll let Joe explain that to you.
BB's bridal shower was last weekend and that went well. Luckily it was a mixed shower-so Joe was able to come with me. It was a long day-so I was happy about that. I hate when we're apart on Sundays.
Other then that- we're looking forward to Sub Ball this weekend at Foxwoods. Pictures of Joe in uniform to follow. We're hoping to get to Maine the weekend after that- We haven't seen his family yet since he's been home and we miss them. Joe has duty on Sat- but we're (unless it rains) going to do the Blessing of the bikes on Sunday. Gotta get the Harley blessed for riding reason. Should be a good time.
Joe should post later.
Love you all!

I love when we are in the truck and he sings...."Our house...in the middle of our street...OUR house.." It makes me laugh and I got to hear him do it this weekend. I sing it sometimes too-but never when it's just me pulling up to it.
We spent a lot of the weekend goofing off and catching up on things. Joe's sleep schedule was really confused. We ended up both being up at 3:00am on SAT. Kind of silly. We got a lot done this weekend too. My car needed new tires and we had a few other stops and errands. All in ALL it was a relaxing weekend.
And...our big news *drum roll* - Joe made chief boards. AGAIN. He is still up early this year...but we're really crossing our fingers. We'll find out July/August. This is one of his bigger career moves and it's very exciting. I'm so proud of him.
He has DUTY tonight ( two thumbs down ) so I'm off to Alicias- Lucky for me her husband Drew has duty too.
A special shout out to Alicia, Joy and Jeannie over at SWC for cheering us on for the boards. You guys are special ladies- I don't know what I would do without you!
