I was all ready to pick him up from the airport- knew my timing, outfit, hair, makeup. I worked out that morning and just stayed nasty; I was going to shower after I put the boys to bed in their clothes (Al was scheduled to get in at 9:30, boys go to sleep at 7pm).
Right before bedtime I got a call from Alex that his flight was cancelled. Not delayed. Cancelled. In Detroit. Two hours away.
I told Jensen, who cried. Sweet boy.
I had been thinking for a long time that I needed to write in my journal about all the things that I had learned over the year apart. So that's what I did. Didn't bother with the shower- just curled up with my bangs slicked back, no make up and sweats on.
My dad was planning on bringing over a pizza for Alex, it was already ordered so as I finished up writing he dropped by to eat with me.
Then there was a knock on the back door. I went to answer it and there he was. He couldn't take waiting the extra hours and rented a car! So much for planning to look pretty.
We've headed down to TN and stayed for a month in temporary housing. Now finally we are moving into our house on post, which is wonderful. We toootally lucked out.
We are slowly getting unpacked...it's rough with the boys. But it's coming around.
So, these are almost perfectly backwards. If it bugs you, you can scroll to the bottom and work your way up! :)
Jensen took the video for us, as well as some great pics.
crazy Kiki. Who curls up to sleep in the middle of the kitchen? When people are all over the place... nut.
