The last day before the beginning
These last two weeks have been too great to believe I actually experienced them. After OCS, it was nice to just kick off our shoes and pretend for a minute that we were free, young (wait, we actually do have that going for us), rich and traveling the world. Unfortunately, the money ran out yesterday and our time runs out in the morning when the hub signs in for airborne school and I show up (in a new dress from the Gap) at work. I actually had a dream about work last night, and to my surprise they weren't upset that I had called twice last week to push back my return date! I guess we will see tomorrow if reality is as nice as dreaming. I want to enjoy this last day before my life gets the craziest it has ever been. In 3 weeks, I will be packing the car and driving by myself to Virginia, my husband will pack his truck and head to Oklahoma (you know, where the wind comes sweeping down the plains?) He will be training part II for 7 weeks and I will be with family since there are 2 major graduations and a best friends wedding during those weeks (which is why I will be going to Va and not with my husband, bittersweet). And all of that will take place before our 18 week stay in Kentucky! So needless to say, today is the last day before the beginning of complete and utter maddness. I will be living out of a suitcase until October when we reach our final destination! Fun? I think yes.
