up before the rooster.
Much love and many thanks for all your well wishes and prayers. My guy made it safely out of Iraq and into D.C, where he's exhaustively waiting for a connecting flight. Strangely enough, as I write from the tiny airport in my bitty town, I'm watching a soldier say goodbye to his pajama-clad little baby girl before heading off to Iraq. Sigh. My heart aches watching it.
Signing off at 4am from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Upcoming destinations in the next 24 hours: Too many to count. Too excited to list. Too early to think.
Happy Thursday. :)
P.S. In clarification: I'm not going to California for good. Just vacation. I'm not ready to leave the Midwest for good...yet. And as an update...I did not cry on my very last day of work. Hooray!
