And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun….
I don’t know if it’s the WEATHER or what, but I am a total GRINCH this year. So much so, I should have made a cookie to show everyone. But I really didn’t even feel like doing that. Eighty-five degrees is not working for me. Plus, I had two sick kids and this time of year makes me miss my Nanny like crazy.
However, today my mood is a little better. My little brother, who moved to Europe last summer, is on his way home and I am soooooooooo excited!
Last year, Bryce decided to go back to school for his masters in geophysical engineering.
I’m really proud of him, but it doesn’t make me stop missing him.
Yesterday, I was so disappointed, because we were pretty certain the massive snowstorms in Europe were going to keep him from making it home.
But thankfully, he FOUND A WAY!!! He’s on his way home RIGHT NOW (Which is why I scheduled this post at such a funny hour) , and to be honest, I’m a little nervous!
Never have I ever been more painfully aware of how very young he was, until the day that he left to fight a war for our country. He went from the goofy kid that I tricked into eating chocolate Ex-Lax, (terrible idea by the way) to a grown man, responsible for keeping all of us safe.
Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without my brother finding ways to make perfectly G-rated cookies naughty!
