A looooong day yesterday... After driving to Jacksonville in two vehicles, and dropping Justin's truck off-base at a buddy's apartment, then getting on base, it was going on four o'clock, and Charlie Co. was to get in at TWO!...but Justin's squad had not pulled in from the armory yet! So glad I had not been sitting there for two hours like most of the people there. Kam and I then finally got connected with Justin and then continued to wait another three hours until their CO came for the formation...sigh...it's USMC time and it's horrendous....especially for families with kids...Hurry up and WAIT...you have no choice.
We enjoyed getting to eat out and talk a LOT...then Kam and I said goodbyes, and took off for Charlotte. Got to bed after 2 am... Justin will get leave as soon as the battalion formation occurs AGAIN and they are released for a 72 post-deployment liberty.
**Just got a text that they are sitting around WAITING for that to happen...Bless their hearts!
Looking forward to it...What a long day yesterday, but oh so worth it, when he pulls in today!!!
Thanks to ALL who visit this blog and said any prayers for Justin's return from the Mediterranean ACB deployment... a short one before the next long one takes place again.
That training will pick up right away...
A BIG THANK YOU to my youngest - Kam for helping with all the driving there and back. Kat has a new job and was in training and couldn't go, and Jonny was sick!
HUGS to all bloggy sisters today, have a great weekend.
