Exciting Day and Learning From Others

This has been an exciting day for me.  I love the guest post that Angie did for me and Anna of Classy Career Girl invited me to do a guest post for her blog.  Classy Career Girl has a lot of great career information and advice for women like "Does your resume stand out?" "Companies and tuition reimbursement" "Finding time to work out" and "Salary negotiation tips."  I shared my experiences with going back to college for my business degree while continuing to work full time and trying to keep up with my teenage kids.  If you want to know more about me or see me in my cap and gown, go over to Classy Career Girl to check it out.  I've learned a lot from meeting these other bloggers and I hope you will, too.

My most exciting moment for today was a really personal one.  My "little" brother (he towers over me) returned today from a six-month tour of duty in Afghanistan.  Six months of constantly worrying about him (and being frustrated with the skewed way the media reports about the war over there) was finally over.  Until you have someone close to you go off to serve in a war zone, you just can't comprehend these feelings.  Watching his kids (ages 5 and 7) run at full speed to hug him and his wife tearfully embracing him was one of the best moments in my life.  His kids would not let go of him for even a second for the longest time.  I've had some personal frustrations lately and I really needed a wonderful day like this!
