Shaved legs? Check. Perfume? Check. Fancy underpants? Check. Husband's wedding ring? Check. Ready to go.

I also want to thank all of you who have been "deployed" along with me for an entire year. I appreciate all your support and good wishes. It means a lot to me to hear from all of you.

And now, I'm off!!!!

A heartfelt thanks to your family. I hope you commit at least one bedroom felony in the course of your happy reunion.

Congratulations to you both. I am jealous however. I don't think my Bride has shaved her legs for me since Chaos was born.
