I'm back ... I think

Hey all! I'm back. It's been a while, but not nearly as long as Tommy Gunn. (Welcome back, dude!)

There has been a lot going on here, much of which I am not at liberty to vent about via web (Army stuff). George has been away training for the past 2-plus weeks and I miss him terribly. You really learn after a deployment how precious time is.

I was sick all weekend and I guess it went around at the office, because we were at about 50% on Monday. I managed to make it through work and the unit Steering Committee meeeting (I am a family support volunteer.) Then at 8:30 p.m. Monday night, I went at the ER with a friend whose daughter (toddler) fell and hit her head, so we wanted to get it checked out to make sure she was o.k. All in all, I didn't get home until after 3 a.m. and then had to get up for work. Thankfully after a big assignment was complete my boss left me go home (I left at about 2 p.m.) However, Sgt. Major thought it was playtime so I didn't get to take a nap until about 4:30 p.m. So I am really tired. It'll probably take me a day or so to get caught up with my sleep.

Last night my dad called and said my sister-in-law fell and possibly broke her hip. She's only 31, with MD and still has 3, o.k. one is a senior so 2.5 children at home. Thankfully they are old enough to care for themselves, but I'm sure this is very difficult for them. I called my brother today and said the orthopedic still had not seen her (it happened at lunch yesterday), so she is on some serious pain meds. She weights about 105, so I know they probably can't give her as much as she'd like because her body wouldn't be able to handle it. She'll be in the hospital for a few days I guess, so for now we can only wait and see what happens.

In general, I haven't done much else. Just home every night to watch TV and stitch or read. I have posts with some pics of the pup and some XS stash, so hopefully, those will be added soon. I'll try to stop by an visit blogs in the next day or so, so until I stop by ... don't be too crazy!

Boy you have had to deal with a lot of stuff lately. I hope that they are able to help your SIL soon, and that you feel better soon as well. Sorry to hear that DH is still away. That would be so hard to have him come back and then need to take off again so soon. {{hugs}}
