Today is a Sad Day...

I just finished 39 hours in the ER over the last 4 days and got up early (4:45AM) with Rob to get ready and head out for the SLC airport. The company Rob works for was flying us out to Omaha Nebraska to meet with the owner of the company and Rob's boss Skip. This would be the first time Rob and I got to fly together. We got to the airport in plenty of time (about 7:30) and were to fly out at 9:30 am. Then I discovered the quart bag/30 oz rule...dangit! So I had to chuck my hairspray (suave is really expensive ;) and got to security where they asked for my ID.

ID?!!! What?! Mind you I had remembered our camera, tylenol, toothpaste, and of course too many clothes...I just forgot the most important item! Poor Rob had to put up with a very wraunchy and then tearful Sarah. As we explored our options we found out that you really can't just come up with a government approved ID in a 2 hour period (turns out the flight didn't leave until 10), and i just didn't have the heart to ask anyone to drive 2 hours to bring me a stupid plastic it was decided. I took the bus back to the parking lot and cried as I watched a plane take off while relocating the jetta. Rob went to Omaha and I am still in Utah...this is my sad story.

I have always struggled with the idea of "I miss you" because you just deal with being apart right? Today I understand and have a newly developed sympathy for you amazing wives of our armed forces servicemen as their husbands leave to a foreign and often dangerous country for 14 months and longer. Thank you for your sacrafices on our behalf!

I will pick up Rob tomorrow night so it really should'nt be that big of a deal. I just have to clarify that this is our first night apart and I forgot what real sadness is because I've had constant sunshine by my side for the last 2 years-Robert Bradley.

I know this all sounds so silly, but I just have to say how much I love this man. He treats me so beautifully and better than I deserve at times. He truly is my sunshine and has brought me pure joy, unlike anyone else. I know that I would be miserable without him in my life and miserable for a very long time...Rob I do miss you and am sad without you! I am so blessed to have you by my side and love you so very much more than I understand...I came to a new realization of this today. Thank you for being you, for all you are to me, and for all you do for me!
Love, Bear

Well friends, to Rob's surprise the birds and the bees don't just produce cows... We are having a baby!!!

I am officially 13 weeks or 3 months along and the baby is healthy and quite the mover. That little thing bounces up and down, taps his/her foot, and scratches his/her head. It is the coolest thing!

December 13th is the official estimated date of birth...which I can't complain about since I am scheduled to work Christmas and Christmas Eve this year!

This makes # 19 for my parents and #1 Grandchild for Rob's parents and it was a lot of fun announcing our happy news!

***You really need to check out Rob's announcement on his blog...well worth your time..Vote for our baby's name...squirrel, zoibling, and blob have already been used...try again.
