Guess I Just Need To Get Used To It Now...

Well, once again we are victim of the Navy's famous "hurry up and wait" routine. My son got up this morning expecting to get issued his plane ticket home for a flight tomorrow and instead was informed he and his whole class are on "hold, until otherwise notified."

How long this will be or if his actual orders change we don't know. From speaking with other Navy moms and wives it seems this isn't uncommon. I can deal with change fairly well, but on such short notice is another story. We had already invited over 50 guests to a "Welcome Home" party Saturday. Even harder to deal with is the disappointment in his voice. We were all feeling okay about the fact we couldn't make it cross country to his graduation tomorrow, knowing he'd be on a plane coming home a few hours later, but now....

No one ever told me it was going to be so hard to be a Navy Mom......
