It Was A Pretty Good Day

DH got home safely from a week long trip to the Chicago area (and I sure am glad he got home... I missed him so much!!)
Had a call from Noah's Team Leader Sgt. F from Iraq who was calling to check to see how Noah was doing. We had a brief chat -- lots of stuff happening where they are, but all in Noah's unit were safe (whew!) Gave him Noah's cell number.
Although I missed them, I had an IM from Our Guys and they, too, are all ok but very busy and very tired... We hadn't heard anything from them in almost 2 weeks!
Noah spoke with Sgt. F who told him all the latest happening back in Iraq and all the gossip and scuttlebutt.. and that they've packed up and are shipping all of Noah's personal belongings back to the States... and they tell Noah that the investment he made in the metal case for his Sony PSP (PlayStationPortable) really paid off because while the case is beat to hell (they dug it out of the rubble of the building), the PSP apparently survived the VBIED!! (Hey, Sony -- wouldn't that make a heck of a commercial??)
And the postal facility over there finally got whatever paperwork they needed and the multitude (what the Guys refer to as "a whole sh*tload") of packages from kith and kin that had arrived for Noah after he was wounded have finally been re-delivered and distributed to the Guys in his Company! Apparently just in time, too! So it was like Christmas in September (LOL).
So, all in all, I'm feeling it was a pretty good day... and we'll take all those pretty good days whenever we get the chance!

Thank God for good days. I am so glad you got some news from the guys over there and I am happy to hear they are all doing well.
Yea, Dan said there is nothing better than getting packages from back home. And there is nothing better, for us back here, than to hear about how much they love getting those packages. God Bless our troops!

Two weeks sure is a long time. So glad that you got an IM from them. I am sure that Christmas in September was wonderful for them.

So glad hubby made it home okay. Hope everything went okay while he was away. :)

So glad you heard from the guys so you can rest assured that all has been okay.

I can't believe that about the PSP! I definitely think Sony should make an ad about its durability. It would certainly be fodder for urban legend status b/c NO ONE would believe it!

Glad the packages are arriving and that the guys IM'd.
