1st not sure if blogger is working i cant seem to get my latest entries on the main page. maybe i am doing something wrong. got a 2nd email from ex #2 and it was much nicer. she verified my employment and apologized for calling me a lier. maybe we can be civilized in our conversation now. that is all i eve asked of her. heard from jess, she seems to be doing ok. dont know why but did not wake tammi up on time this morning. for some reason i thought is was her day off again. sleeping on the "slab" is reall taking its toll on us. but only 10 days till we get our things and then life will be better. really looking forward to the trip although we won't have much time there. we are really happy living here although we miss our family. life is just full of ups and downs.
