As excited.as I am to get away for a few days and thankful that I have an airport to speed up that process... I still see airports as a sad place. For me this time around it is actually quite a happy thing. But (and maybe this is just my "glass-half-empty" mentality) usually it seems someone is leaving or you/me is going away. This makes me sad... Last time I was in this airport I was kissing Kevin goodbye at the end of R&R. I miss him right now.
Well today, as I said I am excited to be jetsetting my way to sunny California! As I made my way to the gat (at the end of our small terminal) I passed a group of 4 or 5 ladies and a few kiddos with welcome home balloons. they had that all too familiar look on their faces of exhaustion, anxiety, excitement, and love... So they were obviously waiting for their soldiers. I waited for my plane to arrive for a short 20 mins or so and watched each of their men de-plane and find their wife. Hugs. Kisses. Babies. So this makes the airport sad today. I am excited for them but jealous as well. I want my soldier home with me. I had my turn at R&R. Only fair they have theirs.
Time to go folks! I just had to blog about this quickly. My dramamene has kicked in. Sleep is forthcoming. Yawn. Have a great weekend all! See you sson MIL!! =)
