We are 3 short days away from Matt's trip to Turkey, and just thinking about it makes me a little queasy! It's not just that he's going to be gone for 2 weeks, it's that on top of that, Karol, Patrick, Granny (thank God) and I are all going up to Pennsylvania in the middle of that 2 weeks. This is the one area where formula feeding really is easier - when I have to be gone. I have to take off time from work, be in the car for 3 hours with 2 babies (twice) and while my Mom and the kids are having a blast at Hershey Park, I'll be at Fort Indiantown Gap doing an SRP, weapons qualification, and all sorts of brush-ups on Warrior Training Tasks. Some fun, some tedious, all stressful.
I soon as Matt gets back, we are flying home to Indiana (yay!) for Patrick's baptism. He will practically step off the plan from Turkey and step right on the plane for Indiana. That Memorial Day weekend will be too brief a visit and then we're back in Arlington, I'm back to work, and Matt will have 3 short weeks before his internship in NYC starts. I don't even wanna think about what happens after that!
