I finally got to talk with Brian last night. It appears they have been continually delayed (as he says in his comment on the previous post) and has no idea when they will be leaving Iraq. Could be as late as the 11th. I put nothing past our great Army.
Anyhoo, I am much more at ease knowing that I won't get a surprise call soon saying, "Hey, we're in Dallas. I should be at Fort Hood in about an hour!" Phew. I'll be glad if I get that call, but for now I don't have to freak out. Quite frankly I feel like taking a small road trip, but I won't. Life shall continue as normal and maybe I'll clean a bathroom or something.
Today feels perfect for starting a new sewing project, so that is what I propose to do. Dresses or a quilt -that's my crushing dilemma, which I think I can handle.
I'll keep you posted on Brian's expected arrival (mainly because I can't shut up about it :) It was great, great fun IMing with him last night and I can't wait to have my buddy home!
