How am I going to ask?. . . and by the way our names are. . .


I am Kathlyn and my husband is Seth (for those who dont know since I have never said!), onto the rest of the story. So today was my first day back at work after two weeks of being gone, a lot of time I know. Now I only have two more weeks left before I leave permanently and of course showing back up today everyone gave me a hard time about being gone for so long (I thought it was funny too, plus I made sure they knew how much I enjoyed vacation). My husband just signed into Airborne school today. The funny part about that is before he got his official date to start class, he was desperately trying to get into airborne school. He was so excited about airborne, thats all I heard about was "getting into airborne school." The morning we were headed to Virginia, he decided to go to base and try one last time to get into airborne. Sure enough, he comes prancing back into the door with an official date. Of course I am thinking, "This is great, congratulations, you got in!" But then the weirdest thing happened. Seth's face changed dramatically from excited to uh oh. He says, "I got into airborne school, what have I done?" As you can imagine, I never in 3 million years would have guessed those words were going to come out of his mouth. I thought he was dying to get into airborne. It brings new meaning to thinking you want what other people have. So for the past two weeks he has kinda been stressing over it. Today he reported for school and with God's help, he had a great peace about it, now he is actually excited to go. So thank goodness he isnt stressed about that anymore! But now that he is at airborne, he cant get off to go to our transportation meeting (which we have to go to if we want to be able to get the Army to move us!) so now, on top of being gone the last two weeks, I have to yet again ask for Tuesday morning off! Aye yai yai. How can I ask that question. Maybe I will have a dream about the outcome and it will come true again! Help!!!
