Operation Quick Call

Dylan called today to make sure that we knew about him being able to leave the base on Thanksgiving day and to give us a phone number to call to make that request. Yes...we have to make it official or he won't be able to spend the day with us. And you know how the military is always giving every event an official name like "Operation Desert Storm", well this one is no different and it has been tagged as "Operation Home Cooking".

He sounded good and he asked if there was anything that I wanted to know about basic training. I have a thousand questions and I had to grasp for the most important ones to ask quickly, so I think I asked him if he was sore from his training and how he was doing. I told him I would have to ask more when I see him next. That was about all I had time for when he said he had to get off the phone. It's always so good to hear his voice. I can't wait to see him in a couple of weeks. This is the third time I've talked to him and it's always very rushed, but just hearing him does me a world of good.

I think you are hanging in there very well!

I love how they name everything an operation something! LOL

So he will get to come home for Thanksgiving Day??? Or you all will go there?

I'm sure he misses your home cooking and I'm sure you will be glad to see him.

I like the name Operation Home Cooking - too cute.

I know how special each phone call is. I can't wait for you to see him. I wonder if your experience will be comparable to mine. I'm soo anxious for you. I'm a whacko.

I like the name "Operation Home Cooking" that's cute. I can only imagine how you feel during those phone calls but only a few weeks until you will get to see him. You are handling it better than I believe I would. I hope you have a GREAT day!!
