I had the best week this week, I got three phone calls from my husband when I was only expecting one. I get like a little girl when I realize that it's him. He called on Monday from Ireland and that was a little weird cause the phone number was 334443 something, than he call on Wednesday from a Minot number which I almost didn't pick up, and than yesterday I got a 1999 number, but no matter the number I have been directed to pick up, cause he could be calling from any number. Brian is now in Afghanistan and will go to his base in the next couple of days to start change over and relieve the people that are already there. He seems so relaxed about all of this, where I am not even the one over there and am still nervous. His only complaint was on Monday were he had to take a cold shower, and yesterday he slept through dinner, can you imagine being over there and your only complaints were that you got a cold shower and missed a dinner. He always asked how I am doing and what's going on, and all I want to talk about is what he is doing and what's going on over there. So a couple things he will be doing that I do not think I could ever do, walking around the villages with no body armor on, this is so the villagers don't feel threatened (I think), eat their food over there, he has to eat with his hands out of the same plate as every one, can you say gross. And really just being over there, his base is not big at all, it does even have a place that they can buy toiletries he is going to have to order them online, but he seems to be looking forward to it, and that's what amazes me the most. But he is not all self less he knows that after he gets back he will have the money to do things to his truck that he really wants to do, and I feel that he deserves it, as long as I get a new couch and bed room set :) So now that I don't know when he is going to cal I have to carry my phone every where but if that means I get a couple of minute to talk to him that's what I will do. Please keep him in your prayers as he starts his adventure (I call it that cause deployment sounds so negative)

What a week we have had, everyone had something big happen to them this week. I got to see little Joseph 4pounds 4ounces and he has a big head but if you have seen his dad you wouldn't be surprised :) Jerry had a blind date on Sunday for a pug dance wore a tux and everything he looked so hansom and he had fun, though his date was a little older she tolerated him, than on Friday he got snipped, he is still a man dog just missing some parts but he really doesn't seem to mind all that much. I got to go to GAY bingo and support AIDS foundation, and had the best time every, also it was the latest I have stayed out in a long time. And last but not least Brian boarded his plane today at 1:30pm his time 10:30am my time to go off on his adventure. He called and I asked if he was nervous and he told me no he was just ready to get over there, but that is Brian for you he likes that kind of stuff, I am sad but will just keep pushing on, he is going to try to call he said when he gets off in Ireland, but we don't know if that will happen or not. But from Ireland he goes to some where in Afghanistan and than from there he goes to his little base. So now I just await his call, email, letter, pigeon :) Um but things to come for getting ready for mister Joseph, I am going to have a 3d ultra sound the first week of march, and have my baby shower the second week of march. I have an appointment this friday, and than one every week after that, he will be here soon. I am still working and will until he comes than I will take a little break and hopefully jump back in to working, Jerry will have to come to terms that he will not be the only one that need mom's attention but he is going to a big pug party in May which I am super excited about. There I think I covered it all

Not Just a Number

I am really big in to numbers, I like them to go together some how, it is kind of an OCD thing but not as bad. So of course I am going to think long and hard on the numbers/birthday for the baby since I get to pick it kind of. Joseph is due in the 15th of April and I think that sounds like such an ugly birthday, I have 6-6-88 and Brian has 12-12-83, my birthday also adds up to how old I am turning, so my next birthday is 6-6-10 and those numbers added up it 22 and that will be my age, ps I am not the devil but my 18th birthday was 6-6-06. So I can choose a week before Joseph is due, here is what I wanted 4-4-10 or 4-6-10 (cause 4 plus 6 is 10, and on his tenth bday his date will be 4-6-20 and half of 20 is ten) or 4-10-10. Here is what I was told the 4th is Easter, the 6th is too soon, and the 10th is a Saturday and they don't do surgeries on Saturdays, they said pick between the 8th or 9th. I was so disappointed with all those days, but than I thought on it and decided the 9th cause it looks good 4-9-10 and it rolls off the tongue, and it is 20 days before Abigail's (4-29-09 her's sounds better but oh well) also my mom pointed out it is a week and a day before hers. So I have decided on the 9th and the doctor told me she will see what she can do and I said um no I didn't get my other dates I will have this one, and because it's on the 9th I do not have to get a needle in my belly, dodged that bullet twice. But I am going in next week to get an ultra sound, it is to make sure he is growing as he should be, since the doctor measure my belly and it was the same size as two weeks ago. Now I didn't know if that was a bad thing, but she said that if you are with in a couple inches of the weeks that you are than it's okay, but just to make sure I will be getting an ultra sound. Since I measured a little big last time my husband thinks that I am all caught up now so there is nothing to worry about.
