I went to work for about half the day. When I got home we had to get ready to head to St. Louis to the wedding of my husband’s cousin. It was a small but beautiful affair. It was nice to see some of the family again.
We left home about 8:00 am this morning for the lake. It’s the last official summer weekend to run the boat. It was a nice trip and we spent all Saturday and Sunday on the water. Ate at our favorite restaurants on the water and enjoyed the warm sunshine!
We got up early at the lake and headed home. This is the day that we take Jeremy to the recruiter station where he is to catch the shuttle to MEPS. It was an emotional day. He was excited to be finally leaving. We were excited for him but at the same time my heart was heavy with worry. He had never stayed away from home before. He spent three hours in holiday traffic getting to St. Louis where he just hung out at the hotel provided.
Cheyenne and I got to St. Louis at 8:30. We visited with Jeremy a short time. There were 80 folks shipping out and things were running a little behind. I was kind of glad, gave us more time to visit with him. Once he did the swear in we got to hug him good-bye and he was gone. I had already done my crying yesterday when I dropped him at the recruiter. Big sister and lots of unshed tears to let out. He texted me at various stages of his trip; heading to the airport, on the plane, landed in Atlanta… and that was the last I have heard from him.
Weird. It was very quiet this morning. Usually Jeremy would be up getting ready for work at the same time I was. But he’s not here. After work hubby and I did some outside stuff. There were lights to put and caulking to be done. We are giving Jeremy’s twin bedroom suit to our renter so we moved some of that to his home. We didn’t work out because we are both so sore and needing to get things done around the house.
Another uneventful evening. Had my first oil change in my new car. Hubby went to the gym while I waited for my car. Can life be any more exciting?! Still no news from Jeremy. I hope they let him contact us soon.
