This one surprised me I will have to say. Guess in my mind I never got beyond Cpl. I don't know if he was so pumped the other night because of the promotion or of the near-miss. Or probably the combination of both. He seldom tells me much so guess that made it all that much more surprising!
The wedding plans are continuing with fingers crossed that the groom will be available for the wedding!! I've got a dress ordered but haven't been willing to go out on the limb and order plane tickets.
Clare, I don't think we moms will ever understand the part of them that wants to go "whereever". When questioning Matt on reenlisting with impending war he said "Mom, I'm a Marine, of course I want to be in the thick of it". All I can say is "okay" but I don't understand and don't even pretend to. I see on Sign on San Diego that lots were leaving Pendleton and that area today. Several ships leaving it seems. Would Ben be on one of them? The chaplain I know is headed for parts unknown.....
