Just as sure as we thought he was not going back and could be permanently based at Fort Polk( no deployment ) in his area of specialty,  the Army called and gave him a 24 hour notice of shipping out back to Iraq. Another reason not to believe any thing you hear about this war unless it comes from some one seeing it  themselves.

Brooke will not be returning to Iraq. It seems the base he was stationed at in Iraq ,Sadr City, has been bombed frequently in the last four days, not that there weren't problems with female Iraqi snipers and small children who would just  as soon blow your head off as  accept  any help from an American soldier. Brooke was shot  shortly after Thanksgiving which I did find out about  until the first week in January. Tuesday afternoon when I was returning him to Alexandria so he could leave for Iraq today(May 2nd) he told me that his sister  had a cardiac incident at school  that day... which began the process to extend his leave... what happened at Sadr City is the kind of langiappe  I was  not expecting.  Sometimes there are small miracles .

On October 23 rd 2007 ,my breast cancer returned with a venegance...after all the stress of the previous year I was not surprised. This time chemo was not a walk in the park but painful and at times I was very ill. The good news is that today  the worst of the battle is over. I still have 8 weeks of radiation and surgery facing me but  compared to the last 6 months that seems like an easier  path to follow.  I apologize for my not staying in touch but I believe  all of you will understand.

My mom died early  this morning (May 31st) I have managed to get out a few emails  but considering the  enormity of my address book and most of them being C2  friends I find this an easier way to address the death of my mother. She died  9 months to the day my dad did. She never got over losing him. I am sure their reunion  was a happy one.

Once again I am painted as a complete lunatic... my brother will get away with what he did  because my mother caved in and demanded that I drop all charges against this animal I unfortunately  call my brother. She says she will get drastic ... what  will she do probably  have some  kind of restraining order placed against me  forcing me to leave my home  since it is inside the boundaries  dictated by law  that i can not cross. This for a  person who does nothing but sit on his  rear end and  watch  Fox News or listen to all the hate mongers on the radio and drink.  I get up  and go to work everyday  , I contribute to  the greater good  and he gets by with breaking my jaw,  a gash in my head,  and other assorted bruises about my face and head . . Oh let's not forget he is a dog murderer and thief. I want him to get help I have been trying to get this accomplished for  three years now while  my mother, my late father and my siblings have this mass group delusion that I am out to  harm this whole family. Seems like I am the only paying for the sins of the others.

Tonite as if by some  twisted version of deja vu  I found myself in the emergency room again  for the exact same reasons  a family member beat the hell out of me. Some of you know I have an alcoholic brother  he lives with my Mom  . I stay at her house at night because she has Alzheimers  and I will not leave her in the care of my brother  who after 9 pm is pretty much  too drunk to  be of any help  to her.  I had asked him politely earlier not to use my bottled water  to mix his drinks and  make coffee with... I do not support his  addictions and  indirectly when he takes it upon himself to  go next door and steal whatever he so desires out of my freezer and  second refrigerator. I asked him why he continues to do this? I am standing in my mother's kitchen  fixing myself something to eat since he pretty much cleaned me out  for this week...I  started to  go upstairs to the room I sleep in  when I am there . He snatched my food out of my hand , slammed me against the wall and proceeded to hit me about the face and head. That wasn't enough once he had opened a gash in my scalp , bloodied my nose, hit me in my left ear hard enough to burst the ear drum, and then to re break my left jaw...my ex husband did this  also 17 years ago but he was not under the influence of anything. Fortunately for me  the domestic violence laws in this state were changed  a few years ago  to where he will not get away with a hand slap and  a short course in anger management. He will be doing at least 6 months in the parish jail and then a year of treatment and  5 years of probation with required  drug and alcohol screens.  The sad thing about this  is that my siblings  and my mother will lie to protect him , they refuse to  wake up to the fact that he is the dead elephant in the living room that they refuse to do any thing about. I am sure they will try to hang as much of this as possible on me. In fact ,I had not been  back in my Mom's house for an hour before one of them called .to find out if I was  going to drop charges. Not this time ...it is his second arrest in less than a year for this kind behavior. What  is funny is he told the arresting officer that I threw a coke can at him... NOT! he was trying  say he was the victim of my violent behavior.  the officer  came to talk to me in the ER before they picked him up they saw what he did  and I am sure  they could smell how much he had to drink ... same as before.

I admit  I have been away far too long from C2, however it was unavoidable. I finally got around to uploading pictures from last year . I have seen a promotion at work, I became certified to teach this year, the reason I have been away so long , preparing lectures and daily exams  took a alot out of me.One  of my sons just high school this week.  The year has been good all in all. NO HURRICANES! no disasters  of any major kind. My Dad died this year as many of you know and those I didn't get around to emailing  this is the best i can do  for now. Bud made it home twice this year once for Dad's funeral and just recently, he left to go back to New york today.
