Marauder Run

Sunday, we packed the last of Will's gear, watched the last bit of the World Cup that he will be able to see, and took him for a seemingly needless haircut. I tried not to stare awkwardly, but I didn't want to take my eyes off of him before I left him to be 'taken'. I just did what any normal person would do, I took a picture 'cause it lasts longer. I'll most certainly miss that face for the next three weeks, and I won't even be able to text him to tell him.


Army Law, much like Murphy's Law, dictates that the dog is never going to get better, I'll get sick, the truck will break down, and anything else that can go wrong, will. I am simply going to have to live in a bubble, because I CAN'T chance getting into an accident or something where they call him out of training. It's a really good thing that this is only three weeks.

But let's not end things on a negative note. Will did a Tough Mudder on Saturday, and I got the pictures at just the right time to lift my spirits. Allow me to introduce you to Team Purple Rain, the team that in spite of their shenanigans, beat the competition time. Oh, and they did the run twice...as in 10 miles of running, mud, and obstacles in a three hour period. Whodoesthat? Someone should have told them that training hadn't started yet.








If those pictures don't spice up your Monday, then I don't know what will.
You are welcome, blog world...you are welcome.

Ugh, SERE! My poor husband went...and was sent home with a day and a half left...because of the government shut down. Now, he will be returning in about a month to do it allllll over again :( Poor guys. I know I couldn't do that training

My nephew did SERE training. He's a navy fighter pilot and because he's a high risk if his plane goes down he had to complete it! He couldn't talk much about it but said it messes with your head!
