The Countdown Begins!

We're working on painting lots of pages to make our paper rings for the countdown chain again. We're in a 30-45 day window now!! I won't know when he's coming home for sure until about a week prior, and even that is a best estimate. We'll be heading to Jacksonville to stay in the BOQ for a while and then finally... HOME.

It's going to be so weird to have Rafe living at home full time. For a year. The longest we've ever lived together without him going on a deployment, workup, TAD, MOS school, specialized training, out in the field, you name it. We already have plans to give each other a bit of space with no questions asked when or if we need it.

And if he is home every night at the same time for dinner... I may very well pass out from joy.

HOW EXCITING! I love that you are doing a paper chain. Bonus if you get to rip off several one day when you get word on the actual day! How long will you be in Jacksonville?

Well, we won't go there until we hear that he is coming, and then there is a 3-4 day window of showing up on time vs. delay. So probably at the beginning of July and then we will be there for about 2 weeks.
