We are 2 1/2 weeks into this deployment. Army spouses have a joke about Murphy coming to visit whenever our husbands leave. Murphy comes into the house and makes things break or gets kids sick or even causes car accidents. In our case, Murphy seems to like to cause crazy medical diagnoses. When Frank left on his second deployment in 2005, Kennedy got a UTI, which the hospital didn't catch and turned into hydronephrosis and a 6 day hospital stay. During his deployment in 2008 (number 3), we found out Kennedy had AOI and needed spine fusion surgery.

And this time Murphy is rearing his ugly head again. Why, just this week alone I have had two different smoke alarms start beeping at me, one of which I couldn't reach, even from my step stool, and a whole bunch of unknowns for Kellsey. Today, I am fighting a migraine and I'm ready to sleep for 24 hours. Two and a half weeks down...

And to Murphy, all I have to say is... "Watch Out!" I've got God on my side and this guy ready to come after you...

Here's to a Murphy-Free deployment!

What comfort we have knowing that the Lord is our Refuge! Praying so very hard! The Lord will be with you every step of the way!!!
Psalms 46:1-5 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
