Disclaimer: I need to have a bit of a whinge. Read no further if you don't like me and tell me to shut-up in a non jokey way, or if you can't handle me having a whinge!!!

Okay, so you all know that I work in a really busy FLGS. And you all know that my husband is in the Aussie Army. Well, we planned and organised a 2 week vacation together due to start on the 5th January. Both John and I would go back to work on the 19th January, hopefully refreshed and feeling good after spending the longest period together in some time.

Ha ha.

We got a letter in the post on New Years Eve from Johns new posting at the Aust. Defence Force Academy. It was re-enveloped from his RMC office. They originally sent it on the 19th of November. Now, John was at work until the 13th of December. The letter says he needs to start on the 12th of January. So now we only get one week together.

OKAY! I know this is STILL one WHOLE week we get to spend together, but there goes the gaming/camping trip we had planned. 5 days at the beach all by ourselves with only some fine wine and Pandemic to play. Le sigh.

Hey, that totally sucks. Time spent together is always special. Well best I can say is that the time you have left will be that much more special because you'll treasure it all the more. Now once yer done spewing because of all that drek... I'd send some anonymous flaming bags of roo poo to those who helped yer special time together go awry.

big hugs to ya and of course take care,

Mike

Well, that's craptacular. I know it doesn't help, but at least they didn't take the other week away too.

The bright side is you still have one whole week. It's not much of a comfort I know, but you need to hang on to the positives when you can.

And we'll always be here for hugs and weirdness.

At the beach! It's the middle of winter. It will be freezing! Oh wait...

Well... it's only Pandemic. A week should be enough for that. Now, if it was a monster game like Case Blue you'd need both weeks. Oh wait...

OK, I can't make it better but hopefully you can tell I'm making a (rather weak) attempt to make you grin. And I promise I'm not thinking, 'Save the vacation time for August, August, August.' Nope, not at all. No siree.

Jamie, you are dead right.

Thanks guys - you all rock me!

I am feeling much better about it all now. I have had a couple of days to get used to the idea, and I know that it is going to be an awesome week.
We will head to the Coast for a night. I convinced John that we should take out our brand new tent and camp. Understandably, he is not much into camping, as he has had to camp out field pretty much his entire career. laugh

Oh well, thems the breaks, and you are all right - they might have made him start this coming Moday - OH NOES!!! wow

Love to you all, my beautiful friends!

Delete this thread.

Set fire to your postal carrier's van or jeep or whatever.

"What letter?"

Problem solved.
