Another phone call from the sand today. How nice. Was definately not expecting it. I had not talked to him online in over two days. They have been really busy, and the haji internet was not cooperating this morning, so he called instead. The phones were not much better, as we were disconnected after about 18 minutes. Better than nothing, so I am not complaining.

Slowly but surely, I am learing what will take place between now and the time our unit will return home. As of today, I have heard so many different versions of how and when it will take place, and what we as family can and can't do. So who knows.

I have the last two care packages packed up and ready to be mailed on Monday. I think that I have enough snack food packed in these two boxes to last several of them until they are ready to head home. Tomorrow would not be too soon for us.

Yes, Michael -- Stay safe and be careful... You may not be a single digit midget yet -- so pay attention! Eyes up, butt down!

And Stacy, stay calm... eventually they'll let y'all know what's what (or Michael will!)
