it was gorgeous. the people were the nicest people i’ve ever met. and there were sheep. everywhere. i’ve been catologing 700 pictures with captions the past two weeks so, i’m kinda over talking about it. at least for now.

so, apparently my family is ok with the fact that my baby cousin (19) is being deployed to afghanistan. i guess i know he chose that way and he’s doing things for this country (i’m a diehard navy brat myself), but i’m a freaking mess right now. i know i need to be strong and supportive and all that but, seriously, i’m scared. i’m scared at what he will see, i’m scared of what he’ll have to do, and i’m scared that something may happen to him. maybe i just wear my heart on my sleeve, but i’m the only one who seems to be fretting over this and making myself anxious about it. there’s really nothing i can do but hope and pray and stop worrying, but easier said than done.
at this very moment, i’m cursing the cold weather that seemed to follow me from my last trip to chicago. a blanket or trip to a gorgeous, pacific island would be real nice right about now. as far as i’m concerned anything lower than 20 degrees should mean a day off for leah.
