So excited!

Friday, April 13, 2012

So... some of you might not know my hubby is in the Air National Guard, the Hawaiian ANG. Anyway, long story short he's still trying to transfer which means he hasn't been able to find a unit here in the Mainland to do his obligatory drills and what not. His unit was kind enough to let him go back in January to do Jan-Mar drills, and they're letting him go back in May to do Apr-Jun drills, AND his extra two weeks of active duty time. Needless to say he'll be gone the whole month of May.

I was jealous of course, and wishing we could go back as a family for a little bit, so the kid could see his grandparents (my mom lives in HI, as well as M's family and grandma). My medical leave was extended an extra two weeks since I'll be wired shut for the entire six weeks (was expecting to go back to work after 4 weeks)... meaning I go back Mon 30 Apr. I didn't think work would let me turn around and take personal leave on 1 May. Then the tickets got way more pricey... so I thought it was on the back burner. And then I happened to ask my boss if I could take leave 7-18 May since tickets were cheaper then...

and he said yes! And the boss man said yes! (hubby)... so needless to say. I'm SUPER excited to go back to Hawaii next month... And we're surprising my mom. Because perhaps the best part is- we'll be on the island for Mother's day! Totally didn't think of that when I bought the tickets...

and I'm surprising all my Hawaiian friends (mostly church ones)... so if you're my FB friend (Salbatross) please don't say anything on my FB page. :D
