I got home from work today to pick up a few things before picking up Aidan from day care. I got the mail and I got a letter from Ryan!! I was SO excited, I ran into the house, ripped it open, read it, sniffed it then cried. He’s doing well…on his way to a promotion. He’s so tenderhearted, the conditions of the Iraqi’s housing breaks his heart. He wants me to send candy to toss to the kids and find a book for a buddy of his whose wife won’t send him anything (or as Ryan puts it…his wife could give a “rat’s ass”). Also in my mail was a birthday card from Ryan’s aunt and uncle and in it was a Target giftcard. Double yay!
So, then I picked Aidan up and took her to Linday’s house for her to play with their dog, Abby. Aidan’s been looking forward to seeing Abby all week. After I dropped her off, I went to Target to spend my happy giftcard then picked up some yummy Korean food and went home. I checked my email to find…I got an email from Ryan!!! He told me he may be changing jobs to a newer, safer one, and that he got my care package I sent a few weeks ago.
What a wonderful day!
