is for the birds!
With our experience the Army's motto is (or has always seemed to be) "Hurry Up and Wait!" Have I mentioned before that I am a very impatient person, therefore waiting just does not settle well with me :)
Mark was supposed to be here today. We only have one ring left on the countdown. So why he is not here yet???!!! Very legitimate question I think.
And of course the communication between Mark is I is ZERO. So I really have no idea what the hold up is, when I should be expecting a call or the like.
Saturday is our daughter's 1st Birthday. During the 3 delployments we have missed celebrating our own birthday's, anniversaries and other holidays, but we have yet to have to say that he has missed a birth of birthday of our children. We have been blessed that way. But, seriously, we are cutting it close here. And really I am just not sure I am up to partying without him here.
Let's just hope he will make it. I guess that's all we can do.
Ok, enough of the pity party. :)
