one for the record books...

Sometime soon, I am going to wake up from the nightmare that has been this deployment. I am, I know it. I am going to wake up and my old vacum will be running fine. I will have not had power outtages and water outtages. My son will not have autism. Life will go back to normal. I just need to be pinched.

I was having a pity party before, and now I would like to inform you on the latest of deployment problems. Our tv has gone the way of the dodo. It started out with a big black box covering the bottom of the screen. Now it has moved onto none of the buttons working. We can't turn it off or on, turn it up or down, or change the channel except through the cable box. We have to unplug it to turn it off. So I get to go and pick out a new tv today. And hope that my neighbor will be willing to set it up for me...and carry it in the house...

And speaking of neighbors, a different one is going to come and jump my battery. As we were headed out to the fireworks last night...the van wouldn't start. For the second time in just a couple of weeks. So I will probably be going to get a new battery also. Someone shoot me now. Seriously.

This is going down as the worst deployment yet.
