We are going down to Kathy's for the weekend for Easter and to support her as she has to take the boys back on Friday after having them for a couple of weeks and she will miss them like crazy. Kelli and Kiereney are going down to visit their dad and grandpa and will be dog sitting for us again. Two weekends in a row without responsibility...how suweet it is! We will meet up with the kids for Easter dinner *gasp* ---I NEVER eat a holiday dinner anywhere but in a home setting ESPECIALLY not a restaurant. I just wasn't raised that way. But alas, it will be this way this year. Maybe next year we will descend upon Michael in Virginia and make him host Easter dinner! lol
Speaking of the Lt.(who I see in 18 more days!!!!!) Illinois has once again bobbled the ball with his transfer to Virginia. Right hand does not know what left hand is doing in the good ole Army, at least in Illinois. With 19 days before he graduates, he gets the word that, no, Illinois will not just release him...Virginia has to request him first from Illinois as to prevent a soldier from going AWOL, being released from one state and then deciding just not to sign up with the other state. Michael calls it a check and balance system. I call it FUBAR since he's had the papers from Virginia and been waiting for the word to send them. Plus he has to request permission for transfer in the form of a letter to a General in Virginia. Again, people, we've had SIX months to get this together and we're down to the wire. My OCD is OCDing! Michael seems cool, calm and collected as a good soldier should be, I guess. Where he is transferred depends on where he gets a job, where he gets an apartment, etc. These ducks should have already been lined up a long time ago IMHO.
Have a wonderful Easter weekend!
