I got a tape from DH!
Fri, 04-11-2003 - 4:45pm
I received a letter & an audio tape (we do audio letters on microcassettes--a thing we did last year when DH was in Kuwait)---its SO good to hear him tell me not to worry & that he's okay but saddens me to hear some of the things he's seen. It was weird having talk about the POW's from the 507th & saying "in a few days we are going to move a little further North for a big fight in Karbala. I'm sure its going to be crazy." I feel like Im reading something in a history book or an old old letter but it's not, DH wrote it on the 28th of March---the wonder of technology bringing the war into our lives! LOL

Just had to share my good news!!!

Oh, Laurie, I'm so glad you got a letter and tape from him! That's so cool that you guys send tapes. Kinda makes it more real, not that a letter wouldn't be, but just hearing your hubby's voice makes it sooo much better! Lots of hugs to you.

Laurie, I'm so glad you heard (literally) from H. It's great just to hear their voices isn't it? It is kind of like they really do exist and not just one weekend a month and two weeks a year. Yes, my relationship with K has been just like a reservist's is with the military. lol

Huge hugs and I'll talk with tonight.

Woo hoo! Wow, I bet those tapes are neat to hear... Well, neat because you know the ending (and that he's o.k.).

Oh, that's so great that you got to "hear from" DH! That's almost better than a phone call - you can replay it over and over!

Hope you're doing well, hon! I'm sure "miz thang" will help the time pass a lot faster, lol!

Hugs, Jill
