Mom – Day 170
I didn’t mention it on my Blog last Friday, but Friday night some of Zach’s friends came over to the house to have BBQ and a campfire. Zach’s friend Shane was over. He has been home on convalescent leave to give him time to heal. He is still wearing his back brace ☹ His friend Chelsey said it felt a bit funny to be over the house without Zach but it felt good to have familiar faces over at the house.
Today we had the opportunity to speak to Zach. We have been trying to call him for two weeks but we haven’t been able to get through until today. We spoke for some time about all sorts of things. We did speak politics/war – same stuff and very depressing and then we spoke about what a tour means for our military personnel. It is weird how one branch of the military can have a 3 month or 6 month rotation and another branch 12 month (the Army just went from 18 months to 12 months). Then we spoke about other little things – that was nice.
I love you Zach
