You can hitch a ride! I am not going to guarentee that we'll get there in one piece, but I'll try to get us there! What time did you want me to pick you up? I figure it will take about 30 minutes to get there. (Unless I get lost...then who knows)
I am getting better evry day! I am so tired of being sick and tired!! News is that Eric Robert is coming Stateside between April 10th and the 15th! He will spend a day in Norfolk, then head to Rhode Island for 10 days for debriefing and update-training before he heads back to Norfolk. He will then close on his house, make sure everything is packed and ready for shipment before he heads off to his new duty.
I hope everything is going well. Spring break should be over and all the little darlings are back in school. I hope that you are going to be able to go to the next Get together. I am planning to go, I need the time away from the house. In the last 35 days, I have been out of the house only 5 days!! I am really tired of being stuck in the house!!
I will try this once again. What I just typed disappeared! I sent the picture twice, but nothing happened So I will send it to you and Robin then off to Julie and the others. Wish me luck. Here it goes:
I'm in Farmington... so Southern Suburbs. It's cold... LOL! I almost said I can't wait for summer... but that will mean my boy will be leaving soon... so I'll take some more of winter I guess. He's our only one and we aren't ready to be empty-nesters yet! :)
Carol....I have no idea what happened to that message that I was JUST typing....So I will try this again:
If your folks are still with you on the 22nd, please bring them with the the Meet and Greet. After all, they are part of our Navy family! Hope to see you then.
