I miss Mary. A lot. I know I'm not, but I sure feel as though I'm the first person to ever have a sister sent to a war zone. It is not very fun at all. I can't call her, I can't talk to here whenever I want. It is hard. And now, getting married without her, NOT a fan of this idea. She's such a good kid, and it's not fair that she's over there. Don't get me wrong, I'm so very proud of her. She's fighting for something that not many truly believe in anymore. She's fighting for a country that she loves. And for that, I love and respect her more than anybody.
I'm at the point where I'm getting stressed out. I have a lot coming up and I'm not quite sure how to deal with it all. You know what the biggest stress-er is though? I'm concerned about losing some of my friends. We're all getting to the point that we're getting married, some having kids, some getting divorced. We're settling down. No more random (or planned) road trips. Now there's so much more that we have to do then just worry about ourselves and call our mom's on our way to nowhere. Is that a silly concern? I just can't imagine my life without some of my friends, and I'm worried that our common interests will disappear once we're settled in our own lives. Sigh. I sure hope not.
