Now is not the time to get sick.

My husband was promised that his orders would be ready today. And not a moment too soon, since we're leaving in about four weeks. That means there's a ton to get done, and since I'm scheduled to work tomorrow and Thursday is Sergeant's Time, everything needs to get done today: final out, household goods, plane tickets, etc.

And I feel like I've been run over by a truck.


I guess it doesn't matter anyhow, since the husband didn't get orders today anyway. I normally try not to complain, but they've been telling him every day for two weeks now that his orders will be done "tomorrow." It's getting a bit frustrating.

Just reading that brings me back to last August...waiting, waiting, waiting...of course, I think we can ALL relate to that one! So much for starting the process 12 weeks out, eh? The norm now is probably closer to 4-6 :) Good luck!

Hate to say but...Get used to it. The only orders Uncle Sugar can cut in a timely fashion are the ones you a) Don't Want or b) Weren't expecting. Good luck

Getting sick sucks... I completely agree!

Your turn, Erin. :)
