Today marks an anniversary of sorts. It was on this day, April 25th, exactly one year ago that my husband left. Did you all get that? One year...twelve months...52 weeks...365 days of my family being ripped apart.

I enjoyed our short trip together more than I can even begin to describe, but nothing compares to the emptiness I feel being home alone again.

I'm working to get my emotions under control and will post some happy thoughts soon....I PROMISE!

Don't know where to start

I just wanted to let everyone know that we arrived back in the U.S. safely. I am back at work and Adurrahman and I are adjusting(slowly) back to our normal routine. I'm trying to gather all my thoughts and I don't know where to start. I'll fill you all in when I get it together.

Saying Goodbye...

Yup, the time has come for me to say goodbye. Will you miss me? No need to worry, I"ll be back in 2 weeks. Two very very short weeks of stuff I can't mention on the internet with random cooking, sightseeing, mother in-law avoidance and all the things that go along with my little family "reunion."

I leave tomorrow around noon. With stops in Newark and Paris before my final destination, It should be an interesting adventure.

Thank you to everyone who offered prayers for us. I've been waiting 11 long months for this day, and it would not have happened without you all.
