Life at 1572: Happy Birthday to Me!

Happy Birthday to Me!

For some reason it feels weird to be 23, kind of old I guess. Haha! No, big plans since Zach isn't here, and he already gave me my gift last month. I believe we've only spent one of my birthday's together when he got back from Iraq this last time. All the other times I was living at home, he was in Iraq, or training for Iraq. Oh well, as is the life for the military family, LOL. I do plan to go out to lunch with Jack this afternoon, and I might get myself a few scrapbook things this evening.

Today also, marks the 5th anniversary of the start of the Iraq war. We have lost nearly 4,000 soldiers, and service men and women. We have also spent 500 billion dollars on the cost of this war. Please keep those men and women that are there fighting today in your thoughts, no matter what your thoughts on the war. They are there putting their lives at risk, and they have to be away from those that love them most. I myself do hope that the end is near.
