Finally....A Call

Posted by: cheryl

This morning my cell phone rang, I looked at the number and saw that it was a number that I was not familiar with, so I thought....... YES!!!!!!!
It was Ritzy. He was telling me that the phones were down and that he could not call. He was calling on a DSN phone. He was also able to confirm when he would be leaving for Oklahoma....
After waiting all these months I will finally get to see Ritzy next Tuesday.
This is going to be the longest weekend ever!!!!!!! I am so looking forward to seeing my "honey". I was telling my sister about when the ceremony is and I informed her that it would be 10pm or after when we would arrive at home. Since that was the case I mentioned that I don't know when I would be able to put up the "WELCOME HOME" banner that I had made cause he could not see it. She told me not to worry cause her hubby and son-in-law have these REALLY bright spotlights and some fireworks just waiting on Ritzy's homecoming. I said "Go for it!" The neighbors might not appreciate it, but this time they can just get over it ;-)
I have a feeling the whole darn family will be in our yard waiting on us next Tuesday when we come around that last corner........
I guess the soldiers should be finished with all the required "stuff" and now for the next 3 days they are just passing time waiting for their flights back to Oklahoma......
Ritzywife is going to try and wait patiently these last few days on Ritzy's return........

This is going to be a long weeked i get to pick up matthew on monday and i cant sleep, eat or anything. im so nervouse about seeing him. It will be the best day of my life.

I have a qestion? I got to OKC today to check out the church and so I did not have to travel the day of. I did not see any sings or any thing pointing where to go and park not a thing. So I drove around for a lil bit to see if I could find any and NOTHING? if you hear any thing please send me a message. me and a few other wifes are in the dark. its a very nice church they have big banners and sings saying "welcome Home THUNDERBIRDS" every where its going to be a nice cermony. well talk to you later I just want to say think you for all the help that you have given me over the past two week. Don't know what i would have done.. Thanks again and safe driving to OKC on tuesday :-)
