I may have jumped the gun just a little bit...

I talked to my Army Guy yesterday, and he says instead of just a couple days, they have to spend a week doing debriefing stuff. So it looks like he'll be coming home close to when we originally thought. Of course, this could all change once he gets to the States and they are told the 'official' timeline for things. So until then, I'm not making plans either way. Though when you get right down to it, after being gone for 13 months, a few days one way or the other don't really make that much of a difference. We're just glad he's almost home.

Little Miss Sunshine and I have both managed to get sick (fevers, gunk in the lungs, etc) and I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out who we've been around that was sick. I couldn't come up with anybody, then I remembered that my dad's been mudding and sanding the walls in the bathroom. The last two times we were around the dust from drywall mud, we both got really sick. I think that's the case here. It really is amazing how sick we manage to get: our bodies must be incredibly allergic to something in the dust. An unfortunate side effect is that it rather limits our ability to do a lot of renovation on any house that we might buy. Drywall work could be done, but LMS and I would have to be out of the house and the house would have to air out really good before we could return. There goes my career as a do-it-yourself home fixer-upper. Too bad...
