The light at the end of the tunnel is a train

By this point, I was hoping to have learned something about Captain Husband's return trip home.
However it's nearly the end of the first week of August and still nothing. When CH and I last spoke, he told me that he would be leaving the country the first week of August and back home no later than the 12th. As of our last email exchange, which took place on Tuesday (he lost his cell phone last week...awesome), he was still stuck out in the sandbox, which does not bode well for a no-later-than August 12th arrival. Being trapped in stand-by mode is quite possibly the worst thing about CH's deployment. Not knowing anything, not being able to do anything...just having to sit back and wait...and wait. And with the end so near in sight, this is all feeling a bit too much like some twisted sadist's version of candid camera. Ugh.

How annoying! I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for you both.

Thanks, Gretchen! Of course, mere hours after posting this, I received an email from CH saying that he has finally left the sandbox and has reached his next destination (yet another -stan, but still). So your crossed fingers seem to be working--keep it up!

Ooh, is it Khazakstan??

Here's hoping CH is on a plane headed to the States this very minute!
