Stateside

My brother is officially stateside and will be arriving home at 1:30 this afternoon. Thanks for all the prayers. His family is incredibly excited to see him. He left last September and I know that they have missed each other greatly. They are a very close-knit family. I'm hoping things will settle back to normal for them soon because readjustment after a deployment can be difficult.

Other than that, there is not much going on around here. The kids are off from school again today and are glued to the Gamecube. I may have to peel them off of it soon and set them to work around the house. They're already starting to get a bit snarky with each other about the game. H is working with a couple to find them a house just north of here. They are looking for a house to retire in and we think we found a couple that they'll love. I also got a note in the mail that I have been invited to take a second postal exam with the USPS to be considered for employment. I can't say I ever dreamed of working for the USPS, but the higher paycheck could sure help out with the OB bills. So, I'll probably take that exam in the next couple of days. Wish me luck.
