Here's what we did instead. All morning I cleaned like a mad woman. My house has been spiriling out of control for a while now and that was the day to do something about it. The phone started ringing early, with random stuff, and didn't stop. After Meg's short nap, we attended the Veteran's Day program at the Kitsap Pavilion. It was so nice. Very well attended and very well done. Adam loved it and Meg loved the flag she got to carry around all day. They had a free lunch afterward (I know there's no such thing, and now I really believe it). Adam and I stood in line for chili and hot dogs and salad. Justin and Meg weren't interested, lucky them. As soon as we got home, I started feeling yucky, and Adam started feeling yucky. As it turns out, something wasn't right with those hot dogs and we were both sick the rest of the night. So not fun. I am sure they weren't trying to kill us, but what a way to say thanks, eh?
In any case, I wanted to say how much I am grateful for the Veteran's who have served before us, who have paved the way to the wonderful life we have. Grandpa Bill, Grandpa Duane, Uncle Rob, Cousin Johnathan, Uncle Kevin, Joe, Matt, Shandrea, Bill, Patty, Karl, Tony, Dawn, Lou and so many others... we love you. Thanks for every little thing.
