Goodbye for now…

I am sooo glad I decided to come home for my leave.  It was worth every minute…

I was able to do so much.  I got to see my friends and family.  I was finally able to meet all the babies that have been born since I left last May.  I went car shopping (love VWs).  I got to celebrate Christmas multiple times with people I love.  I watched a LOT of football, and didn’t have to watch Ohio State.  I danced the night away on New Years.  I saw Twilight Saga: New Moon. I ate at a ton of good food.  I did my hair every day and felt like a real girl.

Of course, there were things I didn’t do while I was home.  I didn’t work out much.  I didn’t get the tattoo I wanted.  I didn’t take enough pictures.  I didn’t get to see everyone I wanted to (I’ll make up for it this summer). I didn’t get to snowboard or go tubing.

But the whole trip was wonderful.  I was looking forward to seeing snow.  I definitely got to see plenty of it… and drive through it, too.  And the cold weather will make Iraq seem like summer again.

I am looking forward to going back.  We only have a short time left (or so it seems), and I can’t wait to see what we can get done before we return home.

So goodbye to my beloved land for now.  I will return shortly, and just in time for all the real fun to happen.

    Sounds like R&R treated you well, travel safe!

    (DD#1 had a bug, it drove well and has something outrageous like 400K mileage. BUT, ALL the repairs were VERY costly, even the small things like a headlight were $200. Just something to add to the mix.)

    It was great to see you, but I wish there was more of it. Can’t wait to spend time with you this summer!

    It was so good to see you again Erin. What a wonderful thing you did for your family to surprise them like you did. Hope your travel back was safe and good. Stay safe and we will see you again when it is warm.
