Just had dinner with Trish who heads to Iraq Monday morning for her six month hitch. Hard to believe I won't get to see her for that long a period of time. She's one of the friends I see every week and I'm definitely going to miss her. She'll be stationed in as safe a place as anyone can be safe in Iraq, but I'm still not thrilled about her going, obviously. Anyway, her two cats, Amelia and Bruce are both asleep on the couch to my right as I type this. Bruce is snoring.
