D worked his tail off and passed his RLP this morning! I am so proud of him for passing this huge checkpoint, I nearly burst into tears when I found out. This means email and phone privileges! D should be transferring to a room in the next few days with email access, so if letters aren’t your thing, please send an email his way. I’m sure he’d love any congrats as well as continued encouragement. (Also be aware there’s a high likelihood you won’t get a response, he won’t have much free time until, well, graduation day!).
Unfortunately I burst into tears for another reason today, I experienced what I’m sure will become a normal part of military wifeness – my first missed phone call. D tried calling me while I was at yoga class. Yoga has been a large part my saving grace these past few weeks, but I gladly would have sucker punched yoga in the face if it meant I could hear D’s voice. Oh well, its just part of the package and I know staying home by the phone won’t make me feel any better. I’ve had a great few weeks spending lots of time with new friends and old friends. Today I had a great time with some our good friends at the zoo. We love this family and are so bummed that they’ll be moving away before D gets home 😦 I’m so grateful to all the wonderful people in my life who’ve reached out to me and spent time with me while D’s been gone. I am a very lucky lady!
