4 months is a long time to not see your son! Its not like he’s away at college he’s in the United States NAVY. Yes I am a proud NAVY mom, but along with that comes I don’t get him on weekends, or holidays unless he’s on leave and we have been very lucky to see him as much as we have. The next time he deploys it will not be on land this time..UGGGGG !
Any way, back to his adventure of leaving his first real command in the KEYS (for 2 years) the friends he made 1 he has been with from day 1.. and back to Jacksonville for sea school, that was like 6 weeks and that brings us to this past Friday! So his flight is a 7 30 ish so he will be here around 9:30 ish, his friends are picking him up and he’s going to see them then come home. He figures that he would be home by 11 pm and he would sit and relax with us a bit and then go to bed. So I did the mom thing and I washed every bit of clothing he has here, because don’t forget we moved so I had all his clothing all boxed up for the past almost 3 months and they needed to be clean! Washed the sheets the blankets rearranged the room like 5 times cause well I wanted it to be PERECT!
Well 930pm his flight is just taking off, and he’s going to get in at 11 15-11 30 ish and the plan is still to go to his friends and see them then come home. OK …OK.. fine what time will you be here? About 2 ish he says, JEEEEZ ok well I guess I have no choice so ill deal with it.
11:31 PM, and I cant wait another min so I track the flight on Jet Blues flight tracker and low and behold IT LANDED.. as I see that I get a text, HERE!! waiting to get off the plane to get my bags and go! About 10 min later I get another text, 1 of my bags is missing! OK so now what, he goes to put in a claim, he tired the plane was already delayed and his temper, well I’m sure you can guess just how happy he was. Ad if you have ever been to an airport, then you already know it stress full when nothing goes wrong.
Is now almost 1 am he leaves he airport 1 bag lighter then he got on the plane with! have done everything I can do from here but all I really want to do is fix the mess and go yell at the jet blue people and tell them to FIND MY KIDS STUFF NOW..and tell him MOMMYS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF IT, BUT he’s like 22 in the NAVY and well he s a man now.
By this point 1m tired its WAYYYYY past my bed time and I’m doing anything to keep my eyes open, even his little bother gave up by 2 am, he tried, lights on TV blaring but in the end his body said GO TO SLEEP KID your 12! So I start folding anything in sight, putting everything in a spot, putting my husbands cloths away in the dark, and I decide to sit for a min, that min turned into an hour and now its 2:45 am and I call him. No answer..I text..SOON? I get OMY, 2 min OMG … I hear the car door shut and I can hear his voice. THIS WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT. It was the best hug ever!!! It was short and sweet but it was just the two of us.
You would think I would have slept late the next day, right..WRONG my eye popped open by 9:30 AM, Seriously, WTH. I go get bagels and stuff do what I needed to do and you guessed it, called Jet Blue! YUP, mommy went there and even found the bag . Because that’s what moms do! So by 12:45 in the car with him and back to the airport to pu the bag. They told us to go to lost and found, bag has been tagged and will be with them. LIARS, it was on the carousel ready to be picked up by another passenger. After we came home my body was done and I was not in a functioning mood. Got some Chinese food and crashed.
Needless to say, I would do it 10 times over just to see my boy! Stay tuned for My newest adventure, YOGA.. Yup I started doing Yoga and I love it!
