    As the thread title states, my DH is finally home from his stint in Samoa. He arrived home Tuesday last week, late in the evening so the boys didn't see him til they got up in the morning.

    Things for Carl went well. He had his debrief with a Navy psychiatrist and there are no issues to be concerned about. Apart from his one upsetting day with the Type 1 lady, he had a good trip. Bought back a lovely sarong for me and a beautiful carved wooden bowl for our sideboard. The boys got the obligatory tshirts!

    It is Tylers 14th birthday today, so he is pleased to have his dad home. But it is only for the next 2 weeks then Carl is posted to his new base while the boys and I stay here until after xmas to allow Sam to sit his exams. We may see Carl before xmas and we may not. The base is about 7 hours drive away.

    To each and everyone of you who sent good wishes in the last month or so, THANKYOU! They were very much appreciated by both Carl and myself.:)

    Deb, It's so good to hear that Carl is back home with you and the boys.
    Happy Birthday to Tyler! I hope you have lots of specials times together leading up to the time when Carl must leave again. May the time he is gone seem to go by quickly. Tell Sam, lot of luck on his exams.

    Oh, trust me when I say that for us, him going away again so soon is no big deal. We are quite used to him coming and going. The yr Tyler was diagnosed, Carl was gone for 6 weeks, home for 3 weeks, in Afghanistan for 5 months, home for 3 weeks, Tonga for 3 weeks, home for 2 weeks, and then East Timor for 2 weeks.

    Some yrs are like that and other yrs he may go nowhere. We've been at it for 17 yrs now so it is old hat! But it's nice to know that someone out there cares!:)
