Been a While…

Sorry family and friends that it has been so long since Curtis and I have written. We both seem to get so caught up in what we’re doing that it becomes hard to find the time for anything else. Not for lack of thinking about the people we love the most though! We’re sorry and are going to ensure that we don’t fall off the radar again.

Things have changed a bit in the last month and a half. While Curtis is diving more and more into his job, I have been moved to a new position. Contracts change, and positions change. I now fly all over Iraq doing computer installations and troubleshooting. And I love it! – Curtis is not to happy, but he says its ok as long as I don’t take any unnecessary risks. And I don’t.

I travel to these remote sites for about a week at a time. I get to ride a helicopter and meet loads of new people. I will try to take pictures as I got out to the sites and post them on the blog when I get back. I don’t usually have internet connection at the sites but I do come back to home base and spent time with Curtis and my computer.

Miss everybody so much and love all!

    Well looks like you finally found your ultimate job – lots of travel and meeting new people – I think thats why we all joined the military right! But there’s dangers out there so take care.

    All the best from Oz.

    Your Tennessee family was getting very worried about the two of you. I’m glad to hear that you are both safe and doing well. Don’t fall off the radar again–just a few words every now and then will do until you’re back home. Love to both of you and take care!

    Julia & Curtis,
    I wanted to let you know I’m thinking of you and wish you well. Take care.

    Also, Happy Mother’s Day to both of your Moms! They are wonderful women with two great children that they are very proud of. Love to you all.

    Just a quick note to find out how you and Curtis are holding up. I hope the care package got there in good shape. It’s been a cold yet nice spring here in the midwest. I hope the weather there is okay. I do envy you and the adventures you are having in your 20s. Enjoy them because you 2 will have great stories later. Anyway be well and let me know if you need anything.

    Hey there! Enjoy the countryside and definitely post some pictures when you get the chance. If you ever make it up to Anaconda let me know…my cousin is up there right now, but he’s probably sitting in a guard tower.

    Wiley-thanks for the postcards!
