I am not complaining.

I am not complaining.

Despite having a total case of the Mondays where nothing went to plan, I am not complaining.

I, with my endless melodrama and extreme emotional states.  I, who squeals for joy and growls in rage multiple times each day. I, of all people, am not complaining.

My sweet little baby cousin has safely left Iraq and arrived back in the U.S.

For good.

He’s a little less sweet, a little less little, and a little less of a baby at this point, but he’s home. And he’s safe. And he’s, physically, all in one piece.  (We’ll work on the psychological.)

Ultimately, it’s hard to view this as anything but a fabulous day.



  1. JT, happydance!

    we corresponded briefly on Amber’s blog. If you have a hug lying around without a name on it, give it to him from me and tell him “well done.” You must be so proud of your cousin.

  2. :D

  3. Thanks for reading, commenting and your kind thoughts for my cousin, Bob.

    I’m tremendously proud of my cousin, for reasons that are utterly separate from his military service. I do, also, have overwhelming respect and appreciation for the sacrifices he made in Iraq.

    And I’m so, so glad he’s out of there.
