I'M BACK

Well it was a long trip, leaving Baghdad on the 2nd of Aug and finally getting home or in Dallas on the 5th and starting leave on the 6th. Yeah 4 days travel which took me from Baghdad, Kuwait, Ireland, Dallas and than Minneaplolis (7000 plus mi and 18 hrs flight time). Two locked downs (customs) in Kuwait with nothing but cereal and milk for two days. With all the abuse, delays and long flights, really makes you think twice about going home. My return trip was just as bad getting stuck in Kuwait for 4 days waiting for a flight back home (Baghdad), I'm glad theirs not a war, what am saying I guess I'm here, hmmmmm! My return trip took me from Minneapolis, Dallas, Frankfurt Germany, Kuwait and then Baghdad. While in Kuwait for 4 dys waiting for a flight, we had no communication what so ever, none. Its strange not having (sad)communication and not being able to touch base with family or letting them know your alive when they expect or have gotten used to talking when we wanted or needed in most cases. Fifteen days leave with nine days travel, 2 Aug and getting in Baghdad on the 26th, ridiculous. Family time at home was great and I spent a lot of quality time together with the kids. I had plans to do a lot of things around the house but felt so guilty as the kids needed so much attention. Sorry Mom, we missed the boat and didn't get the time we needed, we had plans to spend quality time (alone time) but really didn't work out as we expected. Its probably good because it will give us something to look forward too on my return (mmmmmmm). Judy's probably glad that I'm gone, yes, I had a couple temper tantrums, I tried. Updates, pictures and some of the things we did will follow. I really missed the blogging family and SPF. Sorry I missed you in the cities Meritt, Erik saved me four cookies and gave me the impression that was it. Yeah, I know he probably ate several dozen. The girls and I made cookies at home and they didn't taste as good as yours. You are wonderful and thankyou so much.
