Peach State says: Today…Tomorrow…Gone!
Posted by justbetweencousins
I will be welcoming home my 23 year old today as he comes back into town to spend some quality time with his younger brother before he leaves Monday. My hubby has managed to have our 20 year old complete some odd jobs, around the house, culminating with the replacement of the mailbox post yesterday. So how will we spend the next few days?
A gathering of friends for a game of Ultimate Frisbee this afternoon.
A favorite meal of BBQ and sides from our favorite BBQ restaurant.
Hubby is off early…so we will enjoy some family time filled with laughter. ( this is usually the case when the 23 year old and the 20 year old are together!)
I have taken a day off from my normal routine to spend time with my son.
Time to pack and make sure everything is in order for his departure.
He will sleep in till close to 11am and then prepare to leave for the recruiting station. He is to arrive before 1pm!
Here is where it gets tricky! My 20 year old will then be taken to the hotel and wake up Tuesday morning…early…and head over to the Fort close by and hand in paperwork one last time. He will then wait for an undisclosed amount of time before taking his final oath. “Hubby and I, along with our 23 year old, will hopefully be able to attend the swearing in and then say our final goodbyes!” ( Hubby has taken Tuesday off for this purpose!) When given the choice between going to school or watching the swearing in our youngest chose school!…Figures!
As my hubby and I return home, to an even emptier house, our 20 year old will be embarking on a journey filled with…
I am so proud of him…but, between you, me and the front porch I already miss him! I know you will understand my recent absences and the silence on Monday and Tuesday! I will let you know how it goes!
“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”
