Better Late than never: Birthday Cards!

Okay so this is hard to admit but I am not that tech savvy, and the Mac photo app isn't quite as intuitive as the other programs I have had.. as I am having the damndest time finding simple commands like delete for all my extra super fuzzy pictures.   so that's why my blog won;t have  large copious  amounts of entries brimming with picturey goodness.   hell the other day I tried to  take out the  card formt he camera, stick in in the Mac slot.. yeah, took ten minutes to get the stupid thing out, then promptly misplaced the battery( which must be removed first) and then for the life of me could not  get the bloody thing to actually  enter the slot on the Mac.  yay for external USB connectivity....

 so without further ado, just a bunch of cards my Meade Gang pals sent me:


 yes lots of creativity there.   and I have no idea why the top one won't show up..  shows up just fine in my album.. honest...

Maybe next time you'll get some  of my latest creations.. which admittedly have not been nearly as many as I should be doing.. or  have been.

 Confession Time: been seriously depressed.  And I am ashamed to admit that as I tend to be REALLY hard on those whiny wives that  do nothing but lament how haaaaaaaard it all is cuz their DH had to work overnight.  or the ones that  throw conniption fits because their BF in Bagram didn't call her when he said he would.   and Mine  isn't even IN a combat zone.   we talk daily for at least an hour over IM and Skype when necessary.   and we both agreed way back when that we would not  try and get the orders changed or shortened.  I am the biggest Hypocrite out there.  This June trip is the only thing keeping me going, and yet all it is doing is keeping me from sliding down even further into funkdom.  Not even the last few days of 60 plus degree weather is helping.

and although officially the Leave hasn't been approved yet( OPS went  to do so the other day and of course the computer system went down.. John and I plotted our itinerary and meals for DisneyLand at least( we will pretty much wing it in san Diego except for a MUST DO trip to Rock Bottom...mmmm steak stuffed with bleu cheese and garlic, how I miss thee.

Oh well,  maybe someday I will quit feeling sorry for myself....
