To Mr. Assassin, With Looooove...


This won't be much today. I'm out of town with the kids, seeing Mr. Assassin off on his new adventure. My husband's Reserve Unit has been called up. In two days he boards a bus to Ft. Dix in New Jersey. Then, in July, he heads off to Iraq until May 2010.


So this won't be a typical post because technically, I'm sort of on a vacation. I won't really be able to check in much since we are going to have briefings, a barbecue and the kids will get to play with real, automatic weapons.


He will be deployed with a Special Operations force as part of a Psy Ops unit. One of the crests of his units is "Win With Words." At least that makes me smile.


Until next week, when I promise, I'll be funny again.

Thanks for what you do for our country (to Mr. Assassin and the whole family) and we'll be sending lots of stay safe vibes and prayers your way. And I'll second Gillian, hero in the truest terms.

Big hugs! Hoping Mr. Assassin (and the kids playing with auto weapons) stay safe! Tell Mr. Assassin we'll all be thinking of him and to let us know when he needs a Killer Fiction care package. :)

Hugs, prayers, and good thoughts heading your family's way, Les. As Gemma said, keep us informed when Mr. Assassin could use a Killer Fiction care package and we're on it!

You guys are the best. I was afraid to look at this - that I might cry - but what the hell. I'll have Mr. A post a final comment tonight. Thank you!

My stepdaughter's husband will be leaving soon for his third deployment to Iraq. He's in Indiana right now waiting to leave.
