Tonight I decided to de-stress and work on Chad's birthday album. I really like the simplicity of these two pages. Just used bazzill cardstock, Rhonna Farrer stamps with embossing ink and white embossing powder, a white pen and a teeny clock. Gosh...my boy sure is handsome! They are so darn cute together! I had to include a family picture so he can look at us when he's lonely. By the way, for those of you sending him care packages who wanted ideas. He did mention that he would love DVD movies that he can watch on his laptop. You know...they have those cheap ones at Wal-Mart. He likes action, comedy and sports movies really a lot....like Angels in the outfield, Field of dreams, Rudy, etc. Just not rated R. Thanks so much ladies!
Chad sent me money, because he wants me to fly out to Fort Bragg with Sandy in March. So tomorrow I will be buying a ticket. I'm very nervous about it. Not just because I'm under enormous stress here at home, but I don't travel much. I just know that I'd be so full of regret if I didn't go see my boy. We would leave March 14th so we can see him when he is released at 12:01 on the 15th. We'd stay in a hotel for his 96 hour pass. My birthday is on the 16th. (that will be weird not celebrating it with Mark) I have no idea what we will do while we're there. Then he will take us to the airport at 11:00 p.m. on the 18th, but our flight doesn't leave until 5:55 a.m. on the 19th so we'd be spending all night in an airport in North Carolina. That REALLY freaks me out...SERIOUSLY! The lack of sleep will kill me I'm sure, but I can't fall asleep in front of people...one, because it creeps me out and two, because I snore...loud...like a big old man with a cold...very embarrassing!
