Well we are coming from Hawaii and it's all Ohare that we got to fly into. My son's gf she's flying into Midway only because that's a direct flight and it's a shorter flight for her. Where are they coming from? They might want to check out orbitz or expedia or even traveloscity, not sure about the refundable on that either.
My name is Noreen. He called me on Tuesday and I got a few letters yesterday. How about you did your's call? We talked about 10 minutes said it was a really hard first few weeks because of the intensive training added to their unit, glad the weeks are flying by now.
We live in Atlanta, Ga. I've been writing letters to him everyday since he left. It makes me feel like he's still here in away, and I am still able to communicate with him as if he hasn't left. I keep really busy, right now I'm in a driving class, I'm 18 just learning how to drive(I know I'm late on that lol), and he's 21 so he used to drive me around everywhere, but since he left I decided I needed to start learning how to drive. I have a job, and I took up an internship as well, and I start college this monday. So I'm pretty busy, it helps time to go by a whole lot faster! The first couple of days were tough, but I'm more adjusted to him not being here, although I really wish he was. I'm just counting down the days and keeping myself in happy spirits because I know what he's doing is for the better and I'm so proud of him. What do you do to take up your time, do you write letters to Jorge, or are you in school/have a job?
