ARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Phew! That was much needed.

So, DH's division was told that they would be deploying soon. That was two months ago, I think. Well, ladies, he's still here. We STILL don't know when they're going to leave. I can't stand this anymore. We've been put on hold since October. The stress of not knowing ANYTHING is really getting to me.

How much longer do you figure they can realistically not know what they're going to do with 20,000 people?

I just want him to LEAVE so he can come home and we can get on with our lives.. plan another baby, buy a new car, just live like (relatively) normal people and not have this deployment cloud hanging over our heads. It's such a PAIN!

O.K., that's my vent for the day. I'm entitled. I've posted something like 250 messages on this new board and this is only the second one I've written about myself. It's MY TURN now. LOL.

My little boy had his four month appt. on Friday. He weighs 17.4 pounds and is 26 inches long! He's a monster!! LOL.

Loving our new computer. I got the glitch fixed on the program I wanted. Now the latest thing is trying to hook up our printer. The disk doesn't recognize Windows XP and the patch isn't working (after three hours of downloading it!).

Hope everyone is well.

:) Melissa

Well I am on the opposite end ,I am in limbo as to when he will return from his mission, no date set, no idea when he will be home and we will be going on a year all together that he has been gone , i am with you on the limbo, but just enjoy that he is there because limbo not knowing when he will come back is even harder!!

I am ready for a move from limbo land myself!! where the heck are my orders!! LOL

Your son is a big boy, my daughter (11 months) is 34 inches tall, of course i am 5'10 so she must take after me there!!

I hope you get to feeling better soon, when you need to vent vent i know i don't do it often but when i do watch out!! LOL !! it will all work out for you, enjoy the time you have with him. Big hugs!!

Take care

Hugs Melissa.

Im sorry you have been in limbo since October, funny thing last we heard from DH's bestfriend was that they were preparing to deploy in October, and they have yet to leave. Would you mind emailing me, amharkness@yahoo.com. I am thinking your DH and DH's bestfriend are in the same unit, and now I am super curious.

I hope all of this is resolved soon. I hate being in Limbo Land as well.

Oh, Melissa you are seriously in limbo land! I hope they figure stuff out soon. I agree with you on the whole deployment thing. You either need the 20 000 or you don't. Shouldn't make the brain hurt to decide on that one! I feel you pain honey. lol

Glad Lance is doing so well. Keep you chin up.

Well naturally my hope is they just cancel their orders! UGH is right and a few other choice words! This totally sucks Mel!

I hope that you guys get to return living a normal life without waiting for the other shoe to drop and him to leave!

Lance is growing up so quickly!

Hugs and I wish that there was something I could do!
