Happy Birthday Alanna

Today was our send off party for Megan, Alanna, and Dole, and it also happened to be Alanna's 3rd birthday.

We had it at one of the local parks which had a lovely view of the Hudson and wonderful rolling hills, neatly manicured. It was the only park left for rent on a Sunday afternoon, and probably one of the best parks TO rent with the views and country setting.

Dole leaves in the next day or so for Kentucky. When he gets there he will find out more info as to his deployment to Iraq. Hopefully it won't be right away. If it is, Megan is going to set up house in the Hudson Valley, as it does not make sense to move far away with Alanna, and have no husband, no friends, and have to find a new oncologist and medical care to boot. She has quite a support system and boy is she going to need it if he is sent to Iraq, perhaps harder for her since she has been there and knows what a hell hole it is.

Well, things always work out the way they are supposed to, so once again I have to turn it over to God/the universe and trust in its workings.
