I don't do the dance in my yard but I sure do think about that silly nurse every Thursday when I celebrate BB's life inside me!!!

I have been really having a hard time with him leaving, it's the preleaving stuff that's the hardest for me. I feel like I start to pull away from him and distance myself for some type of protection. It's hard to enjoy the last few days you have together when you know you will be apart very soon for way too long. I think it's just knowing this trip (about 3.5 weeks) is the beginning of him being gone for much longer. We both appreciate your prayers as he heads out to New Jersey for combat training, among other JAG specific training (the first week is only JAG's that are getting deployed). I'll try to keep you up to date with anything exciting David's up to while he's gone this time.
For those in our home towns...
We are heading to the midwest to see you in May!! We'll be in IL and MN but only for a few days each so, if you want to meet up please let us know ahead of time since we'll have a tight schedule.

The reality though is, when I would be actually offered pizza it just sounds too greasy and bloating and down right bad so, I haven't had much of it.
On the other hand, I've had a whole lot of the follow: Gatorade, Rold Gold pretzels, Zesta/Saltine crackers and Strawberries. Not too exciting but I'm really really looking forward to having my appetite back! I'm praying the nausea is gone for good (it's been creepin around the last few days but not as strong)!

Today in church our pastor played this video, twice! Man did it get us fired up and excited about our King again!!!
This is only half of SM Lockridge's rant on how amazing our King is so if you're looking for a full version try youtube.com.
SM Lockridge's sermon has a special place in my heart not only because it's an exciting glimpse of God but because my dad would play this for us in the car as we grew up! He loved this (originally 6 min) clip from Lockridge's sermon and it still touches us today. I hope you have a few minutes to get excited!
