So heres where we are.
He got green lighted to be deployed last week. Received all his gear. All paperwork is done. All boxes are checked and yet… he’s still here???
Apparently he’s leave date got pushed back just a little. Its not by much but we’ll take it. Its tough because I am of course so happy. At the same time its tough because I was emotionally and mentally prepared for him to leave this week and now thats not happening. Now we are in this limbo of knowing he will be deploying but not knowing exactly when and its frustrating to say the least.
We have a tentative date but I am still on edge that we won’t make it till them. Every time his phone rings, my first thought is that they are calling him in to leave now. I know, I know, its the military, they do what they want, when they want but knowing it doesn’t make it any easier to live out!
I’m hoping I’ll be able to relax and enjoy the extra time we get. This military life keeps things interesting thats for sure! As tough as it can be, my thought is that its best just to embrace the craziness now because it makes the ride I whole lot more enjoyable… maybe :p
Keeping my fingers crossed I get to keep him for this weekend because if so, we’re throwing a football party! Prepare for the worst, hope for the best. Not much more you can do after than.
