Best email ever.

It was short and sweet and it came from the hubby.
All it said was this...

"I'm leaving in 20 minutes"

I won't say when I got that email but let's say he should be home very soon.

I'm completely excited.
It's been a crazy week since I last posted.

I've been so tired and overworked that my boss even told me to come in late one day.
She's a kick ass chic I'm very lucky.

I just tried a test run of Hubby's fave cake and it's cooling. So we'll see how that goes.

The other night I got pulled over by the MPs at 11:25pm with the baby in the car on my way home from work because I had a expired inspection sticker. I am grateful that they didn't give me a ticket and only gave me a warning but the whole thing was just annoying.

I failed inspection because the tint on the car I bought FROM the dealer was too dark, so I failed. I was really annoyed. I haven't had time to either get in re-inspected someplace else or get the tint removed.

I got to the gate they checked my ID. They let me through the gate THEN realized I had a bad sticker. I was already driving away when they BOTH apparently jumped in there cars sped up behind me like i was crack dealer trying to escape.

1- i was doing like 20 miles an hour
2-I'm already on base.. where the hell am I gonna go.

They followed me, and pulled me over accross the street from my driveway. Like literally I could've spit out my window and hit my driveway. They woke up the kid with the flashing blue lights. It took almost 25 minutes for the newbie to learn how to right a warning to me. Basically they were bored, had nothing to do and I was a guinea pig car for the cherry private.

I was super nice cuz I don't want to get the hub in trouble but I did get a good smartass comment in AND made the MPs feel bad.

I gave him all my stuff( license, reg, the failed inspect and insurance) I didn't give him my ID I didn't even think about it. I was really pisst off at this point. After a few minutes he comes back and goes" Ma'am I forgot to ask if you had your Dependent ID with you?"

comment -Um yea, you just checked it, you let me on base didn't you? (Duh)
MP- Oh yea

**blank stare***

So then they come back and the E3 is explaining to the cherry how to write my warning. So I don't know what got said but they were like "just so you know that we gave you a warning , yada yada.. sorry."

I go... no big deal but you did wake up the baby in the with your lights. (She was wide awake at this point). They both got that look like..."oh crap we woke up the baby" I go...Here wanna say hi to her since you woke her up. .. and proceed to role down the back window.

The one MP was like .. uhh hi. She just smiled and made silly baby sound. It was really funny to see their faces.

I rolled up the window .

Then he goes.. Ok we're gonna block traffic so you can get back onto the road.
For a second I though he was being sarcastic since I was the ONLY car out and it was midnight.

But he was serious.

I said ok.. and They watched me drive like 100 feet turn the corner and PULL into my driveway. They hadn't even moved yet.

Oy vey.

Hub said we'll get the car taken care of when he gets back.

BTW Sunday will be the 4 month mark since he left.

YAH!!!!! Enjoy your time together! That sucks about your car, I got pulled over the other day for a safety check. I think the MPs were just excited to get to do something.

I tagged you for a meme on my blog. If you dont have time to do it with hubby coming home I understand.

YAY YAY YAY!!! I'm so excited for you!

My registration is out... I swear, if it's not one thing with that car it's another... although technically the registrartion is my fault lol.

Enjoy the time with the hub!

Stupid MPs! I think it is awesome that you made them say hi to the baby. Heh!

Woohooo! soon! Maybe he's home already. Have fun!

MP's. losers. and they woke up the baby! grrr!

You know that really young gate guard with the alf-alfa ears? Have you seen him? He recently checked my id and didn't want to let me on base because my ID card was "expired". It is not. He kept insisting that it was expired. I was trying to explain that Dec. 08 is coming in about 9 months... Almost made me late to pick up my kids from school....
