Relentless like the tide, time marches on. Tim’s countdown to boot camp is 3 days and dwindling. Today he was back home after his final check-in at MEPS. He passed his physical stuff with sit-ups, push-ups, and running a mile in 8:30. So now we just get to enjoy his birthday party tomorrow, Super Tim day on Sunday and he is off to Georgia at 4 am on Monday morning.
We are kinda skipping Easter this year to have Super Tim Day. We are doing all the things Tim likes to do, and he gets to do them with everybody. Bowling, a movie, and sushi at a Japanese restaurant. (The rest of us are having cooked food, thank you very much.)
When he started this whole thing way back in Sept/Oct, it seemed like we had forever until he would be leaving. He took the test a few times to raise his score, he took forever to finally get his first physical, and now his day to leave is approaching so fast I feel like I can feel the wind in my face.
Have you ever had something seem so far away and now it is here?
