Thank you Army for allowing my husband to come home for the weekend!
John came home Friday and I just got back from taking him to the airport. Honestly, it was great having him home instead of my going to GA. Life felt normal for a few days and having him around always makes life seem better.
We didn't do a whole lot while he was here and it didn't matter. He was home and we were together so that was truly all that mattered. Saturday we went to a great restaurant nearby for our anniversary. A bit pricey, but well worth it. The weekend flew by so quickly though and it is hard to believe that it is over.
It was hard to see him off today, but not as hard as other goodbyes. I am headed back to GA in 10 days for the last haul of OCS before coming back home and moving to Oklahoma. Right now we do have unofficial orders that his FA training will begin January 3rd at Ft. Sill. We are still waiting to hear back about Medical Services, so there could still be quite a bit of change in the upcoming weeks.
I realize that is so much to do, but we can't do anything until after he commissions and calls the branch manager to find out what he can do between commissioning and the start of training. We can't burn all the leave now because then we can't come home for Christmas.
Now I just have to get through the next 10 days and no more separations until he gets deployed. I hope it goes by quickly.
Happy Labor Day!
