I'm so ready for B to be home and safe again. I hope Obama likes his stand-down, because it's obviously going super well in the middle east.
In happy news, I took the dog and drove to Phoenix to stay with some friends on Thursday. Ross was Brad's best man in our wedding, and recently married Megan back in April. They were kind enough to open their home when I called having a minor break down last Sunday. It was a much needed break. I just needed to leave California! Of course, being there turned in to an even bigger blessing because I was able to have both support from them and TV access to keep updated when the attack on Bastion happened (I canceled our cable when B deployed).
On Saturday Mizzou (my alma mater) played ASU (where Ross went), so we all went out to breakfast representing our schools. B joined us for breakfast, but didn't wear his Texas Tech t-shirt ;)
