So, my husband's emergency leave is almost up. He was home because of his grandfathers passing and now he'll be going back to Iraq. Tomorrow is the memorial service at the church for his grandfather. We've been on a pretty steady low for the last few weeks. It's been really tough, you know? But, my husband and I decided that we are going to have a bit of fun. We are going to celebrate St. Patty's day tomorrow. (We both have a very strong Irish background. My grandfather came over here when he was 12 and he has relatives as well.) It's more than just the "get trashed" holiday for us. (Although, that does happen too.) We are going to celebrate his grandfathers life and we are going to celebate our own life. It's hard dealing with the fact that once he goes back over seas that I won't see him for at least another 7 months. We want to make the most of it. So, I just want to wish everyone, early, a very happy St.Pattys Day! SLAINTE! (Cheers!)
