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!
