Military Families Military Families

I forgot what it was like to 'jump through hoops'!

I posted last week that my son was getting married at the end of the month. Well you know what they say about best laid plans, add in the needs of the military and well...yeah.

So the big wedding has been postponed, however they are still getting married in a smaller ceremony with fewer people, just not at the end of the month. They are getting married THURSDAY. As in day after tomorrow!

Schedules had to be rearranged, flights had to be changed, new time off requests had to be edited, therapies had to be cancelled, etc...like I said jumping through hoops at 10pm last night after I got the call. SIGH

Oh and I lost my debit card on Sunday, so I had to dig through file cabinets looking for credit cards I never use since my debit card is gone.

Only good things are that  D is on spring break this week so he won't miss school like he was going to with the original wedding date and I had already bought my dress and shoes!

I forgot what it was like to scramble like this when duty calls!

So ladies, the next time I 'see' you after today, I will be someone's MIL!

Oh my. What a whirlwind! Sounds like you're pulling it all together though and things are falling into place.

Congrats!

I don't drink during Lent, but I will tell you that the wine rack looked VERY appealing last night.  ;)

 Can you learn to  be evil in by Thursday so that you can make us all proud as a MIL?  :)

Congrats to all of you!!
