God Bless You & Keep You Safe, Ryan

Well, it's official. My brother-in-law flew out this morning. He was told it would take about four days to get to Afghanistan. I'm sure my sister is hysterical by now - especially being pregnant.
Here's a picture of my sis & Ryan on NYE.
(I hijacked it from her blog!) ;o)
I'm leaving at about 7:00 p.m. for the LONG drive up there. Wish me luck.
I had my first procedure yesterday. Got about 5/6 stitches - not too bad. The only problem is that I can't lean back or lay flat. That really sucks - especially when I'm getting ready for a 13 hour car ride.
I should be back sometime late Sunday - you all be good without me this weekend! I'll miss ya.
I leave you all with some cool pictures I took from my back yard yesterday.
I love you guys! Have a great next few days!

And the safest wishes to Ryan. I know the stress it causes on family and friends firsthand. I wish him all the best and may he return to your family safely and soon.

Twisty: Thanks! I know you understand. I just wish I could be there for her right now. It's going to be the longest drive EVER.

Have a safe trip buddy.

You and your sister look so much alike!!
Safe wishes for Ryan. My brother just returned from Iraq a few weeks ago, so I know how it feels to have a family member over there... but not a husband. I hope he comes back safe and as soon as possible.
Enjoy your trip!

Ellen Jay: Everybody tells us that! What's even stranger is that we're 12 years apart.

Thanks for the sweet thoughts - I'll make sure and let her know.

P.S. Glad your brother got home safely. ;o)

Jin- Sorry it took me all afternoon to get over here, and I hope I don't miss you before you leave. Just wanted to wish you a safe trip on the road. It is very noble of you to take the time off the help your sister, and I'm sure she'll feel a lot better having you around.
Kiss the georgeous Melly-moo for all of us!

Ellen: You just caught me - I'm heading out the door to go home and throw a few things in a bag and then I'm off.

Thanks for the well-wishes!

I'll give Melly a big sloppy one for all you guys.

Take Care - Have a Great Weekend!
