See You In Germany

Shame on me, I haven’t posted about my brother (in the Army) in a while! He finished his Advanced Individual Training (with Honors) right before Thanksgiving, and has been home since. It was definitely great being able to spend some time with him, and listening to some of his stories. He’s leaving for Germany on Thursday for two years. Every single person we’ve heard from has had nothing but wonderful things to say about Germany. The only sucky thing is that it’s not cheap flying to/from Germany, so we won’t see him unless we fly there. Yikes! Still, it’ll be a great experience for him. I’m sure there’s lots to see, and he’ll be able to visit France and other places while he’s there too. I’m happy for him and wish him nothing but the best, and a very safe trip there! Hopefully we’ll find a way to visit him, because two years is a long time.

Anyway, I just wanted to write a quick update. Even though it’s been a while, it’s still weird when I think about my brother being in the Army. How’d that happen? But we’re all very proud. He’s done great (got lots of certificates/awards) and I think it’s cool that he’s learned all these things. (He’s a medic.) He’s thinking of making a career out of this, so good for him! That’s all for now. Auf Wiedersehen! That’s goodbye in German…

Family Time…And Stuff

I feel like I haven’t written a personal blog post in a while. I know, you’re probably thinking, “Thank God. Those are so boring!” Well, that’s a little mean, but I’m not going to stop now. The most recent change in my life concerns my brother. He decided to join the Army. It’s been a long process, but his ship date finally arrived. It was sad to say goodbye, but I’m proud of him for making a big decision like this and sticking with it. He’ll be working as a Health Care Specialist, which I think is great. Hopefully he’ll never be called to war in the event of a shortage. I was worried enough just about him getting on a plane! I know the first few weeks will be hard, but for the most part, I’m sure this will be a great experience for him, plus he’ll have great benefits. If all goes well, he plans to stay in the Army and retire after 20 years. So yeah, please wish my little brother good luck!

I spent the whole weekend with my family, which was really nice. We always have lots of laughs when we get together for dinner. Men are funny when they drink. We went bowling too, which is another recipe for laughs, because we all SUCK. I’m gonna blame it on the ugly shoes. Those people make way too much money on shoe rentals alone, probably a million times more than what the shoes are actually worth. And it’s not like they replace the shoes very often. Mine were all ripped and shit. I would totally invest in my own bowling shoes…if only I didn’t suck.

Anyway, that’s pretty much the only update I have. I hope you guys have a great rest of the week.
