Brock should be in the states today and another interview

My son should be landing in the states today, although he wont be back in CA till tomorrow! At least I will be able to talk to him via phone today! WOO HOO!!!

I also just received an email from an Atlanta TV news show wanting to interview me! Will let you know more details as I know them!!!

Thanks to all of you who helped me on my quest to be in CA to see my son. It isnt going to happen, but... it will be okay!!! Just knowing he is here in the states is WONDERFUL and knowing that I have such great caring friends all over the United States is heartwarming. God bless you all!!!

Countdown is here and I cant go to CA :(

Well, the time is here. My son is on his way back to CA and I am not going to be able to go, which really makes me sad. I had so wanted to be there when his plane lands! But... Guess I will just start on the countdown until he gets leave to come home, which will be in May. Bummer! I so wanted a hug from him this weekend! They kept changing the times at the last minute. He was supposed to leave on the 19th, then the 11th then it was today. But... maybe things will work out and I will find a way to go. Just hope my inside source keeps me updated so... maybe I can be there!

Just got word from my inside source.... LOL

Okay, my "inside" source told me they should be landing in CA on Friday, so needless to say I am looking up airline reservations, Amtrak, debating on whether to drive, etc... I want to be there so bad when my son steps off that plane. I doubt they will let us up there, but I can sure be standing down in baggage. Thanks to one of Brock's good friends, he is keeping me updated, so we can surprise Brock if things work out and we get to go! I must say I am very excited at the prospect of driving (I eventually want to go to every state in the US) and/or taking Amtrak, which we have never done before, but hey, an airplane is just fine as well. Whatever gets me there! I am so excited I can barely stand it. Just thinking about seeing the smile on his face when he sees us makes it all worth it. He doesnt think we are coming, in fact, told us that he would be busy and that it was okay if we couldnt so... guess who will be the loudest, crying the most, mom at LAX!!! I think it will be me! LOL I appreciate all the kind thoughts, words and prayers from you guys and will keep you updated!!!

Exciting news....

First and foremost, down to 8 days until my son leaves Iraq. We are weighing our options - driving versus flying versus taking a train. We have never taken a train before other than subways, so thinking about checking it out. Second of all, Military Momz is going to be featured in an article in an AR paper tomorrow. I also received a call this morning about being on a Chattanooga news program, a very popular station with a ton of viewers across the TN/GA area. I am very excited about all the above. I am going to be presenting a giveaway shortly also. Will post more information later! Hugs to you all!!!

I got this from Diane at http://pinaforesandknickerbockers.blogspot.com/ and I wanted to pass it along. If you want to play, then leave me a comment and let me know. Once I receive your comment, then I will leave a comment on your Blog and I will assign you a letter ( A - Z ) After you get your letter, do a Blog Post ( copy and past these instructions first ) then use the letter I gave you and write TEN things you love. Remember that each of those things HAS to start with the letter I give you.

Diane assigned me the letter P, so here we go !

1. Pleasure!!! Who doesnt love pleasure of any kind!!!
2. Playing!!! Again, who doesnt like to play. I like to play games with my children, play jokes on people and just play in the sun and at the beach.
3. Pie, chocolate pie. YUM YUM
4. Partys. I love a good party. Meeting and talking to others and hanging out.
5. Pizza - Pizza Hut super supreme with extra mushrooms, no onions, olives or peppers.
6. Provino's a great Italian place here in town.
7. Pinky and the brain cartoon.
8. Pennies cause they add up to dollars.
9. Pictures, I love to look a pictures, especially my through the years photo albums of my boys.
10. Pink toenails. I love hot pink toenails or bright red.

Excited about so many things....

Of course, first off and the most exciting is the fact that it is only 9 more days till my son leaves Iraq. Second is that my business www.militarymomz.com is going to be written up in an AR newspaper on Thursday. I am so excited! I just spoke with a very nice reporter, and he said to check out his paper Thursday. I will post the link! One think I have learned over the past couple months is you have to keep pushing and working to get your name out there!
