En Route

If I had a house with a tree outside I'd tie a yellow ribbon like this one to it! No, Mom, I'm not going to tie it to my car, even if CRV does rhyme with tree...
Why would I do this? Because my long lost husband is finally coming home. Yesterday he left his forward operating base, and he's now en-route to Columbia. He won't be out of Afghanistan for another week, and he won't be home until March 19th, but at least he's making progress.

Finlay for mayor and other news...

I think my dog has something to tell me. I guess he hasn't been listening when I've told him we're moving in 2 months! Last weekend I was in Austin for my sister-in-law, Mandy's bachelorette weekend. We had a great time! This is the only picture I got, and it's with my iPhone so I'm sorry about the quality. We dressed Mandy up and took her down to 6th Street on Friday night!
Unfortunately, I came home from Austin with the flu - yes, the real flu - even though I got the flu shot! I've been out all week, and still have symptoms so I can't leave the house yet. It's very lonely and boring!
Here's the great news on the countdown: Nick leaves the FOB on Monday, which means he has less than 2 days left there! He's slated to return to the States on the 18th and to Columbia on the 19th. That's less than 2 weeks until he's home!
