Where did time go?

Just a quick update on what is going on with my son at Wright-Patt...
John is doing well at his job, he seems to like it a bit more than at the beginning. He will be in SF (Special Forces) Training for a week, coming up soon. He told me his goal is to be deployed by springtime. I've asked about the extraction of his wisdom teeth, it appears it will happen in military time, when somebody decides and then I suppose it will be done asap! John had his last Hep A & B shot yesterday and some kind of "Inactivated Influenza Vaccine". Needless to say he is feeling sick because of these shots. Nothing like a small dose of the flu...UGH! I'm hoping he feels better today.

I came across this picture of John with his buddy when John was about 8 years old... something about the faster they grow up and away, the more a mom needs to cling. Posting random pictures of him as the little guy I simply adored, will be my therapy for days which simply feel tough...for no reason whatsoever!

Where did time go?

airmanmom, yes we were at all the activities that weekend and the airman's run was exciting. I loved that we could hear them before we could see them. We didn't have a problem picking out our son because he passed out during a drill practice and went face first onto the drill pad. He sported a huge goose egg on his forehead so that is what we looked for. It was easy to spot. :) It is a story that I don't think he will ever live down. LOL!

nanette...thank you for sharing the story! How unfortunate for your son...but lucky for you!
Make it a good day!

Been there done that with the old pictures. It is cathartic in so many ways.

I wil so excited. I will be at Wright Pat in 4 days. I still would like to link up with John so I can give him a coin. Please contact me offline at so I can give you my contact info so he can reach me when I am there. I would never ask for his without his permission.

michelle... I am certain you must be thrilled beyond words! To spend *skin time* (love your saying) with your daughter, not to mention how you must be busting with pride-graduation! I'll send you an e-mail after I speak with John. Enjoy Wright-Patt!
