Sand Through My Toes

My big adventure in the sand

Finally, it is time to head out….

I am a new Aunt the day before I head out for the next year!  Congratulations to my brother, Sean, and his wife Julie, as they welcome Cali Kennedy Dorsch — 7 lbs. 12 oz. this evening! Cali being so close to Kelly, guess we can all figure out who is the favorite sister!!  ha ha ha Thanks Seanie Bawnie, you are the best brother ever!!

After being delayed for a week, we have a 6:30 am call for luggage, get weighed (yes, my body with my backpack — oh boy), then we will receive our protection (and no, not what sailors receive when they have a port of call!).  Sit and wait for transport to the airport.  I’ll either be in Ramstein or Shannon for refueling — so those in Germany, I still have my SIM card and you just may receive a phone call :-)..

It will be a long day, and into the next, as the adventure begins to my new duty station!  Hopefully internet is up and working 24 hours from now.

Thanks for all the comments, emails, and well wishes!  Here is to the beginning of a new chapter!

Take care!!
