Yesterday seemed like it was super long that is for sure. I got up and went to the base for school leaving my house at 0600 and found out that I didn't need to be there until 0730 (could have been later they wouldn't have know)We were supposed to start indoc at 0800 but it was nearly 0900 before they started. Worked through the multiply don't drink and drive blah blah blah.. and Then went to lunch at about 1130 to return at 1pm. Most of the rest of the group goes home for lunch but not me I live 40 minutes away. I figured that this would come up and be an issue but not the first day so I was not prepared.

After lunch we continued with the boring indoc classes most of which I have heard about 15 times and then at 315pm they released the kids that were on day time classes went home. Those of us on nights (me) had to go meet with our instructor for a couple hours and then we were out of there. So I left the base at about 5pm last night.

When I got home I wanted to just lay there and do nothing but ended up playing video games online with my brother. I figured that it wouldn't hurt to play after all I got some big news yesterday and just needed family time.

What big news did I not tell you? I found out that I will be depolying when I finish school. Not sure yet when I'm leaving but I will be and I don't know when I will be back. We (my family) always figure roughly 6 - 11 months since 6 is the least I have been gone and the most was 10 1/2.

Well I am off to fix lunch and get ready for work.

When you get deployed, you'll have to post a list of things you would like/could use to the Yahoo Group so we can send you care packages. You know for a fact my mom and I will send them to you and I'd suspect others will too. =)

So what do you do with the girls? Do they go to your Mom's?

Approx how long is school?

I'm so sad. I mean, I knew you probably would...but knowing and it happening are two different things.

I hope for your sake school takes a very long time. Most definetly what Jen said we'd send all kinds of care packages. I got really good at sending them during Vietnam. Heck I can even hollow out Italian breads and insert bottles of wine and never have them break....... We could even send fabric just so you could pet it.

Gina said...
