First of all, I want to say congrats to all my friends who ran in the Boston marathon yesterday. Running a marathon is difficult enough, but running it in record heat, I would have probably passed out.
This weekend I went home to visit my parents and they got to meet little Goomba. I also went to visit my best friend. She has a little miniature pinscher – Zoey. It was quite hilarious watching the two of them run around play together. Zoey was actually afraid of Goomba and would run away – man can that thing run. I wouldn’t have been able to catch her even if I wanted to. So of course there was no way Goomba baby was going to be catching him, but Goomba was smart and used some strategy to try to catch her.
It was nice because where we live, there is not a ton of room to just run around. We have to constantly keep him on a leash. But out in Western Mass, everyone has huge yards, so it was perfect for little Goomba to just get out and run around like crazy. What was also great about it, was that he slept like a baby after that.
I also got to see my baby cousin this weekend. It has been awhile. I love this little guy. He has a baby brother or sister on the way – I am hoping for godmother status! haha. This little guy is the biggest 2-year-old I have ever seen. But he is so good. And so photogenic!
This weekend was also big, because two of A and I’s very good friends came home from Afghanistan! They are in the marines, and left just two days after our wedding! We didn’t think they would be able to make it, they were down in South Carolina getting ready to be deployed, but they got a weekend leave and were able to come up for it.
They finally came home this weekend – safe and sound. So on Saturday, I was in CT celebrating their return. It was great to see them and I am so happy that they are back with their friends, family, and significant others.
In honor of them, and all the many other soldiers out there right now fighting for our freedom, I just wanted to say thank you. May we all take a little time out of our busy days to remember those that have lost their lives fighting for us, and those that are over there fighting for us right now.
