Time is crawling and flying all at the same time. Big D deployed on Valentine’s Day and if all goes as planned – here’s a first! – he’ll be home soon! Much earlier than expected!
I’m trilled (of course!) and I’m so thankful for great friends that helped me pass the time.
Eventually, I had to escape to Florida. So great to surprise my sister, catch up with our good friend Ed, and spend time with Carey, Granny, and the kiddos (who were also fleeing the never-ending freeze.)
Once the freezing stopped, the rain and dreariness started.
I spent a fantastic day volunteering with Honor Flight. And so should you! Look up your local area’s organization. You will be so glad you did!
I was thrilled to attend the Africare CODA dinner with African Well Fund board members Diane and Julie (and I’m counting the days until I see them at some upcoming U2 shows!)
I’ve also spent a lot of time with Eileen, a neighbor who has really helped me make it through my time alone. We binged House of Cards, cooked dinners, caught some movies, and generally just hung out. And its been great having new friend.
Of course it hasn’t all been fun and games. But who wants to read about the mundane? I am overwhelmed with work – “Pile it on” I said, “he’s away and I’ve got the time…” – so now its a frenzy. And there is much to do before the big welcome home.
As always, I’m thankful for all of it.
