It's a plane! A it's Lee! Lee is currently doing his Airborne training. He has to have 5 successful jumps out of the plane to graduate. He told me to pray for good weather and soft landings. Ha! Supposedly he's coming home Friday but we won't be able to confirm anything until he's given his itinerary. He did get orders that release him "on or around the 30th." Not very clear, huh? I hope he gets to come home Friday. I went ahead and booked my flight home Friday because I'd rather come home early than late. If he came home and I was stuck in a hotel one night longer than him I'd pout. Ha!

Just Another Soapbox

I strongly believe President Obama has a lot more demanding tasks to headline his day than to complete his promise regarding “Don’t ask, don’t tell.” Also, referring to him disrespectfully as “Obama” isn’t going to lend you his ear no matter how talented I know you are. Promise to keep our troops safe.

In Person

I saw Lee in person. O how I love Columbus Day. We had a great weekend together. It was the fastest last minute purchase ever. Lee called me on his way to the ATL airport in the cab on Friday night. Once there, he hurried into the airport to locate a flight home asap. He called me as he was boarding the plane seconds later. He said he bought the first thing he saw available because he didn't have time to think about it as the plane was boarding while he was purchasing his airfare. If that was the only flight headed to Oklahoma that night, he wanted to be on it! Can you believe he hadn't been home since June 4th?!?! While boarding, he calls to tell me he is getting on a plane headed for the Tulsa airport and to be there around 11:30. That's all I knew when I grabbed Cooper and the keys. We took off for Tulsa about 9:30pm and got to Tulsa just as Lee was landing. We got back to Norman ~2am. All in all it was a great weekend. We didn't do a whole lot but that's what I loved about it. He got to see our friends and his brother, David came to see him too. It was a nice, relaxing weekend. I made a very yummy taco soup with a recipe that I had been wanting to test on him and baked my Mexican cornbread favorite. I love that stuff. I could eat it like cake. Sunday morning we had biscuits, scrambled eggs and sausage gravy. I think he missed that...he ate a lot of it. He's traveling back today. I will hear from him later and hope to gets his graduation dates secured so I can book MY travel!

Cooper keeps me company while Lee is away so it's only fitting that I celebrate his special day.

I'd really like to surprise Lee and pick him up on base when he gets off on Friday or surprise him with a ticket home. Airfare is not in my favor. I'm trying to be patient since I'll be seeing him at the end of October...

I've been a very busy bee. Work has been a tornado of events lately. Fortunately, the week is coming to an end. I've been able to talk to Lee at night. You know this makes me happy! Currently, he is in Airborne holding. He will be transferred to the school across base on Thursday of next week. He gets a pass on the weekends; he gets to leave base and do whatever he wants. I encouraged him to get a rental and go stay at a hotel to relax. He's excited to sleep and eat. It was hard for him to go back to the uniform way of living after having such a great weekend after graduation. I'm looking forward to him getting to Airborne so I can get graduation dates! I can then start my next countdown to see him:)
