Iraq

Rey left for Iraq yesterday morning. He was supposed to leave Wednesday, but due to unforseen maintenance issues, I got to have him for one more night.
I miss him. I feel incomplete without him. It is still surreal at the moment; the big breakdown hasn't hit yet. I'm sure its gonna suck when it does tho...

In other news...
A few weeks ago a dead body was found behind our apartment complex. I opened the door to the police officer with a shotgun, who, instead of being alarmed, politely asked me to lower the weapon and then put it down. Yes, that is Texas for you. Turns out, the popo are ruling it a suicide. I am not a fan of death and corpses...

I have a DOUCHEBAG government teacher. If I don't end up in prison for stabbing him in the jugular by the end of the semester, it will be a miracle.

I am again taking pottery, and making a whole bunch of stuff. I am gravitating towards bowls for some reason...hey, I like bowls, okay. They can hold my popcorn.

We have yet to receive our insurance check for the break-in. Way to go, Mr. insurance company. I am filing a formal complaint...AFTER they disburse our funds...

We have 3 cats now. I'm taking in strays apparently. Back off, I love them. They keep me company, and partially sane.

I am sick. Stuffy nose, sore throat, and headaches. I'm just waiting for the fever; heaven knows these Texans are rampant with the swine flu.

That is all for now. New updates when I get to talk to Rey. He is in Spain for who knows how long, then to Italy, again for who knows how long. Then off to Iraq. You guessed it, we don't know how long he'll be there either. I am unsure as to whether he can check his email or anything of the like, so I am basically playing the wait game.

How are you doing since Ray left? I'm little jealous that he gets to go to Spain and Italy... Someday I want to travel around the world. I'm sorry you had to deal with so many things since you moved to Texas. I don't know if I would have been able to handle what you have gone through. I don't like dead bodies either. I hope you are doing well. When you have a chance, I would love to see your pottery! Someday I want to learn how to make it myself. I think they are cool.

sorry that Rey is gone, I can't imagine how lonely you must feel. I wish you weren't in school so that you could come stay with us for a while but alas...
Oh, I added you to my family list on my blog, just thought you might like to know :)
