Just to follow up from yesterday’s account of my phone conversation with Jo……
In preparation from deployment, apparently there are a lot of tests and appointments that have to be taken care of in order to be “fit” to go. One such test is a “mental review”..I suppose to evaluate if you are stable enough to be shipped out. All of this military agenda is new to us and Jordan had recently told me about this test. And, lest you confuse me with the kind, compassionate type…when Jordan told me about his deployment being cancelled, my first comment was ….”Maybe you failed the mental review.” Not even kidding:)
He was quick to assure me the entire flight (group, team, whatever??) had been cancelled! Oh, and as a side note – in preparation for deployment, Jordan is/was scheduled to have his wisdom teeth pulled. I asked him if they were bothering him and he said, “Oh no. They told me they just aren’t necessary and pulling them now, I won’t have to be worried with them while I’m overseas.”
Oh. I suppose the same could be said for your appendix, your gall bladder, and that spare right kidney!! And we wonder why the boy doesn’t call home more often!!
Enough about that. I have really enjoyed Jennifer’s blog this week. She had a great (and she promises easy) recipe for dough…to make breadsticks..which I plan to use this weekend. She also had some lessons on fixing up the look of the blog – I’m still working on that. And she had a really encouraging post about trust that was inspired by her coffee mug!! I mentioned in my comment that none of my mugs are that inspiring – but I do like my mugs and most of them have “a story.” I am planning to share a mug or two on Monday. Maybe you will join me. Share a picture of one (or two) of your favorites and then share the story behind it. Let me know if you did in the comments and I will look forward to reading your story!
