I started baking cookies to send to Johnny. First of all I hope they get there edible. Secondly, I thought he would enjoy some pictures of me making them since he usually enjoys taking one off the counter fresh out of the oven when he is home.

The suggestion that I have read on the Internet is to freeze the cookies until you go to the post office. So all the orange Tupperware are cookies to send to Johnny. And you get to look at what else is in the freezer. Time for a bigger freezer!
The cookies I made in the pictures are peanut butter with a pumpkin candy. For Halloween of course! Other cookies I baked and are sending out are chocolate cookies and I made chocolate chip oat bars. I am waiting for the bowls to clean up in the dishwasher to start making the sugar cookies. I'm still not sure how all these cookies will end up in the box.

Johnny's Unit

The FRG coordinator for Johnny's unit emailed some links. I hope you enjoy! Although they are just glimpses of what Johnny is doing it's still better than nothing.

As for me.....just sitting around selling a little Scentsy and waiting for time to fly so my husband can come home to me.

NO Broken Bones!

Johnny finally made it to the other base via helicopter. He went to the doctor and said he strained his tendon. Gave him a different brace and now Johnny has to sit and wait to go back to his base.

So after two full weeks of sitting and waiting hopefully next week Johnny will be able to get up and do whatever it is that he is suppose to do. Hopefully nothing too exciting happpens again. I just want him safe and together the way he left.

Johnny lost to a Punching Bag

As Johnny sits bored in Iraq he has worked out just about everyday with some of the guys. Well two days ago he decided to hit the punching bag in between sets of whatever exercises he was doing that day. Let's just say he lost to the bag. Now he has to sit around with a possible broken wrist and wait for a convoy to take him to another base to get x-rays done so they can figure out what exactly he did to himself. I was hoping he would take a picture of himself so I could post it along with this post but no such luck...what a guy! So when he gets some results I can update the blog about him and let all those who read this know as well. As of now he is still waiting and the high amount of Motrin and Advil is not working out. Yesterday he was wishing for a frozen bag of peas...I'm sure he misses home and all the readily available help he would have.

But on the brighter side...we can add this to the list of disability that he can receive when out of the military. He seems to wait for active duty to sustain most of his I just hope he gets this all situated soon and can actually be productive soon.
