Strikes over..

Yes, Audrey is the angel and I'm the star. I'm finally going off strike. It has been really hectic and kind of crazy here. My husband is finally home. He is now on leave until the 2nd week of August, by then I'll be ready for him to go back to work. Don't get me wrong though I love my husband, but u know how they can get especially after not having them around for over a year. It has taken me awhile but i think I'm finally used to having him around. The kids are happy to have daddy home. It took Greenlee awhile to get used to having him home but she did get used to it. The first 2 days they get off and then they have to go back to work for 10 days. Those 10 days Greenlee would get up in the morning and wonder where daddy was. I would have to tell her he was at work and would be home soon.
Greenlee is doing good, I'm still having trouble potty training her. She is going to see a urologist on the 15th of July. Jason is getting there. I'm taking him to a play thereapist now and i'm hoping we'll get somewhere with him. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
To let everyone know. Yes, my daughter loves her Mister Gerry. When he first came home it was like she had know him forever, when in fact she had only seen him a few times. Kids have a good judge of character though so I can understand why she took to him so quickly. Gerry is truly one of a kind. He's like a big brother to me. He's even a pain in my rear like I imagine a big brother would be. Well I have to go and do Greenlee's hair now. Hope u enjoy reading this.

Okay, so enough lallygagging around, here comes another one!

Okay, so my husband is finally home and so is Stars(I am the Angel here). She might disagree, but just so this is all clear, this is Audrey, not Chrystal. Anyway, our husbands are finally home and we are both relishing the time that we are getting with them, just to explain the absences that have been taking place. So many adjustments and all, but we are loving it.
The day that Gerry came was so hectic, getting the house cleaned up again, because heaven forbid the kids let it stay that way for a week, let alone one day, getting ready and all pretty for him as he comes off the plane and getting Dean and the kids ready to go. Chrystal came with us with Jason and Greenlee so that she knew where the airport was. Just so you know, Greenlee only met Gerry one time and saw him on the computer a couple of times, but as we were waiting she was getting more and more impatient(so was Dean for that matter, he wanted Daddy) and we couldn't figure out why. We thought maybe she was bored. Then the plane landed and we got to see the soldiers file off the plane, we were all looking for Gerry, of course I saw him and knew him the minute he stepped off the plane. Such a site for sore eyes, but enough mushy stuff. We had to wait for about an hour to an hour and half(at least it was better than the two that we were expecting) and then got to line up at the ropes for them to come in, and finally, we get to see what she was getting antsy about. She wanted her Mister Gerry. You have to understand, up to that point, I was her Miss Audrey and she would go through withdraws over seeing me, even if it was only a couple of days, so I got alittle jealous. She is a cutie, if you met her, you would understand. She started to throw a prize of a fit, like most three years olds still in their terrible two's, that just make you want to curl up into a dark hole and not come out for year until she is no longer like that. Finally we got out of her what it was and just looked at each other and laughed. So, finally, Gerry gets into the terminal and we have to stand for a bit more. They finally let us get to our spouses and they get mobbed, imagine, not seeing your husband or wife for a year or longer, stinks, so, yes, some of them might get tackled when we get to them. By the time we get passed them, I have to watch and keep an eye out because they were the largest group and it was very crowded, but he is very tall and just stood in one spot, making it very easy to get to him. Dean immediatly jumps into Daddy's arms and wouldn't let go of him, making it hard to hug him for me, but I don't mind sharing for the moment. Then he puts him down, and hugs Chrystal and Jason jumps into his arms and Greenlee just stands there. She is alittle shy of strangers, but keep in mind that she wanted her Mister Gerry, not mine, hers. She finally lets him pick her up after a few minutes and she was stuck on him like glue, that is until her Daddy came home a week later. Well, more later, it is getting late, have fun reading!
