|Well, got back from shopping. that is quite a feat when you are lugging a 7, 5 and 14 month old with you! AHHAHAHA! After talking to dh again, my short list turned into the NASCAR hat, 2 sweatshirts, 2 outfits for 5 and 6 year old girls, and one pair of Levi's. yes, they had to be Levi's. I think it is safe to say that at least some of the satellites are up and running in Iraq. But, now dh is turning into a one man charity organization! That is great, but at the same time, if word gets out too much about what he is doing, I am going to have to start hitting people up for donations as this could get very expensive. I refuse, absolutely refuse, to send the really expensive tennis shoes that someone requested! Little over our budget, I think! One thing people may not know about Iraqi people right now is they are NOT shy about anything! Not trying to generalize, just speaking about the ones that dh seems to meet. Actually had a lady ask him for 500 dollars to pay for her son's wedding!! Where did he go wrong? He got a pair of roller blades for her younger son. Sorry, but, ah, roller blades are not that expensive, sheesh! Anyway, he turned her down, obviously. He feels bad but, man, is just a working man like everyone else, can't do everything for everybody, as much as he would like to.
