Someone is in my house!!!


Seth left for the field on Saturday morning, for a 4 day "field trip" and if you calculate it right, he should get back Tues. Well, last night I was sitting in bed watching CSI, unable to sleep (it was about 12:30). I am in the bedroom with the door closed when I hear the front door creak open. I am panicking! Who is it? It cant be Seth, he is in the field!!! So, I finally yell, "Seth???" and I get a weak "yes. . ." Oh! I cant explain how mixed my emotions were right then. I wanted to kill him and kiss him at the same time!!! His phone died so he couldnt call me. But this is what happened. All day Friday, for our baby day 08', he was grouchy and groggy. His throat hurt so we got him some throat drops to take to the field. Around this time every year, right when the weather is changing, Seth gets sick. Last year he was at basic training and had pneumonia but didnt tell anyone and then on a ruck march his kidneys failed and he had to go to the hospital. This year, he was smarter. He only has 2 1/2 more weeks until he is done with this school! This was the last 4 day "field trip" before the big 8 day one that they call the Gauntlet. So Seth decided that if he didn't want to be recycled for going on sick call during the Gauntlet that he would need to go now! So I am sooo glad he did b/c I don't want to be in this apartment any longer than I have to!!! It is 1:45 pm and he is still sleeping! I think he must really be sick because he has never slept this long. So I guess this means that I need to work on my paper while I have the chance, blahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. But if you could remember to pray that he gets better so he can leave this week for the big 8 day and we can be done with Bolc III!!!

How scary would that be! I sometimes have trouble going to sleep at night because it is too quiet and I notice every sound, and an epidode of America's Most Wanted plays in my head! Anyway, tell Seth we are praying for him to get better and do well in the Gauntlet!

Oh, get well soon, Seth!
Michael is sick this week, too. He always winds up with bronchitis in the winter, but the cold weather starts sooner in MO than in NC!
