And I'm Off...

Ladies, the time has come. 

I'm off to Fort Drum.  Cross your fingers, say a prayer and hope for a fantastic 2 AM arrival. 

You heard that right.  My boys are coming in at 2 AM! (BTW, Army - you sucketh big-timeth!) That means that yours truly will be up at the crack of dawn, prepping the car and driving up the the frozen tundra.  Then... waiting, waiting, waiting.  If I'm lucky - Ellie will still be up at "The Drum" when I get there.  Her hubster arrived Thursday night, and she flies home Sunday night.

The goal is to see their return ceremony, pack them up in the car and drive back home.  When all is said and done - I plan to be ecstatically happy (cuz, who wouldn't be?!?!) but downright exhausted after being up for almost 24 hours.

This is my only pre-set post, so I apologize if Monday's post is late and/or missing.  I'll be updating Facebook and Twitter, if you miss me.  :-)


  1. awee... my brother was in desert storm (yes a long time ago) in the marine core and I remember we went to NC to see them get off the ships. We waited hours and hours before they got there and then they had to go do other things before they were allowed to leave with us. It was all very emotional! I hope it all goes well and your loved ones are returned to you.

    Bless you!
