So last night was my DH's last night in reception... this morning he was heading over, he was assigned to Charlie 1-79 at Ft. Sill, had everything packed, turned in his linens, etc... then called me and said that because a National Guardsman had priority over him, they told him at the last second he now has to wait until next week. So now he just gets to be a sitting duck in reception. He was so ready to get started. It adds an extra week on to the 26 weeks I don't get to see him, and if he has to get assigned to a different battalion his graduation date will change. I had his address and had given everyone the facebook page to follow him through basic and now have to refigure everything out. In the long run it's not going to make a huge difference but right now I'm just aggravated... I just want the basic training part over with. Guess I get to figure out the "hurry up and wait" part early.

Ok vent over. Blah.

Graduation got pushed back from May 10th to the 17th cause he'll be in a different battalion.... I mean yeah it's only a week but today was just so frustrating especially when he was pumped to get started and after that he's feeling down and deflated.
