Sounds like you had a crazy busy year. I too got to say good buy to my little brother before he left to Iraq (2nd time). I hope your brother is safe, or at home by now. I'm also working on loosing weight so I can walk in the Breast Cancer Walk in Houston this spring...I've got a long way to go, but you're a total inspiration. I hope your 2009 is awesome!
