Thank you all for your support yesterday regarding phone calls and DH - and the lack of them. He called last night and we chatted about things. He said some great things and knows he has to call me more often. The biggest thing that *I* have to remember is that he calls when he can and that other wives' DH's have different jobs than he does and so when one husband may be able to call his wife, my DH may still have three hours left to work. Totally understandable - but it's something I don't know until he tells me. So I'm 100% better today.

In other news, it's freakin' snowing outside! All the snow was gone and I woke up this morning to flurries. Regardless, I feel so good this morning - except for waking up to the neighbors' dogs barking at 7:15! I'm getting a few things together for the resale shop and that feels good. Since we're moving soon, I don't want to move more than we have to. I'm also going to reorganize some photo albums and other "fun" things like that, lol.

Tonight I'm doing dinner and a movie with a couple of the wives and then tomorrow I have no plans. I'm liking having time to do things. I'll study at some point, but for right now I'm enjoying computer surfing and my cup of coffee.

Today is Ombudsman Appreciation Day - so happy day to me! I'm the Ombudsman for DH's boat (similar to the Army's FRG).

Have a great weekend, gals! Hugs, Jill

Glad you heard from C! It is hard to hear that other's are getting calls and then you don't BUT it was great that you two could discuss it and understand.

SNOWING!!! UGH! I hope you have sunshine soon!

Enjoy your dinner and HAPPY OMSBUDSMAN DAY!

Hugs

Happy Ombudsman Day!! woo hoo! And..love your avatar :) it DOES fit you perfectly. I cannot believe that you aren't doing anything tomorrow. This is JILL, right? LOL Well just thought I would say that I am glad you got things worked out with DH. Some men just need a big shove to get them to understand us women.

HUGS!

I'm happy that you and DH were able to talk things out. I know how frustrating it can be when you are operating on limited information, and then start feeling a little left out.

Have a nice time tonight at dinner.
