Here I sit this morning with fires to the north and to the south.
All of my marines are accounted for, so that is a good thing. Yesterday the haze from the fires started to drift over the mountains, so today I am really hoping that the wind changes directions and bl owes the smoke some place else.
I do believe in karma and fate, and yesterday was a prime example of that. I was trying to call one of the marines and I mis dialed the number. So I hung up. Then the dude I called, called me back! So I told him that I had mis dialed and that I was trying to reach one of my marines. The gentlemen on the other end of the phone was retired from the Coast Guard. He was stuck in San Diego and Lives not that far from me! So all night I was calling him and letting him know which roads were open.
I am really enjoying our cooler weather. Yesterday I actually baked some homemade french bread. The house smelled so good, and the oven heated up part of the house nicely.
I feel like there is something that I should be doing today, but I am not sure what it is. Nikki does have class today, but Amber is taking her, so I will just have to pick her up.
What should I make for dinner? I guess whatever falls out of the freezer first is what we will have. I am just really not in the mood to cook tonight.
Oh we just got word that another one of our marines is coming home. It is a twin of one of the marines that is already here. I can't wait to see him. The brothers will be united again.
I am not a twin, so I don't understand the whole twin thing. These two boy's fight like cat's and dog's. Yet they do everything together. Both of them were lost when one left for Iraq before the other one did. I am just a better person because I know these two.
Ryan has been hinting that he wants a new Halloween costume. I hate Halloween, and I am still on my spending diet. So I have enlisted the help of the marines and came up with a costume for Ryan. On of the female marines is going to loan Ryan some Cammie's and boot's. Another marines is gong to paint Ryan's face. Yet another marine is going to take the plates out his body armor so Ryan can wear that and finally Rusty is going to bring home a rubber m16. There it is. Ryan's Halloween costume and it coast me nothing.
Yesterday Rusty cut his finger really bad. I swear it bled forever. I guess it does not help that he is on blood thinners. I cleaned the blood up yesterday, bu today I want to go back and bleach everything down. I just can't believe how much he bled!
Well I should get my day started.
