Only a Few More Hours to Wait

I spent the day putting fresh sheets on his bed and plumping the pillows....making menus of all his favorite meals...and shopping for sugar cereal (lots of milk!), bagel bites and other snacks and those silly expensive all-natural smoothy drinks!!! Oh, I also ordered some balloons from the party store (to be picked up tomorrow) - and then I texted him for the zillionth time...just checking!!

WHY??? Because my handsome, newly graduated Airman is coming home!!! Tomorrow!! He gets a ten day break before heading to his first duty station - in Florida :) - and to say that I will not be able to sleep tonight is just about right on....

I can't wait!!

  6. Hi Jennifer,
    So excited for you. I know what that feels like to have your son away a long time and then coming home, it is the best and most exciting feeling in the world.
    It is so fun to prepare for them, and it is hard to wait for their arrival, but it is so joyous when they finally do arrive.
    Have the best time!! Enjoy ever minute!
    Blessings, Nellie
