*I did it – I manage to escape the house for 1 whole week to attend the Military Order of the Purple Heart Convention. I miraculously finished all my “to do” list, hired a babysitter to fill the voids and packed everything in 1 suitcase!!!! Yes, 8 pairs of shoes plus running shoes, a formal dress, and 2 outfits a day for a week in 1 suitcase!!! It only weighted 38 pounds too!
*The camaraderie these guys share with each other – they are such a unique group. Just thinking that all these men looked death straight in the eye blows me away. Heroes! I sat at the bar tonight and there was one guy with a patch on his eye joking about how all of them are so old. Another guy came by and told him he had the patch on the other eye last year. It was freaking hysterical!
*Started reading this book today – intense! I hated to put it down.
* Bonus – got selected as one of the 100 women bloggers to look our for (or as someone on Twitter put it “to watch out for) in 2009. I’ll take that!
