Heard from the AFK

The Air Force Kid left for the Middle East yesterday. Got a call from him—he’s arrived safely, and is inprocessing.

My nine-month-countdown until he’s due back in the states starts now. I know it will probably be longer. I’m just hoping it won’t be much longer.

In the meantime, he’s with good people.

    Hugs Holly. Glad he arrived safely and I hope those nine months fly by as quickly as this year seems to have done.
