That's what David told me earlier in the week. We'd been planning on him arriving on the 24th for a couple months, but a few weeks ago he found out that the plane leaving his base was almost full. Since he's just going on vacation, he's a lower-priority traveler than some of the others. So it was up in the air whether he would arrive here on the 24th, the 31st, or some other day between now and November 4. He kept updating me on how many available seats there were on the plane (last count: 4) and I kept trying not to bash my head against the wall. I'm a planner and this kind of travel is out of my comfort zone.
So, since I didn't hear from David today, I assume he's going to be here tomorrow! And since I assume he's going to be here tomorrow, I had to clean
There is a free shuttle bus that goes from the base to the airport and back and I'm going to ride that tomorrow. The drive isn't terrible but it's 125 miles and about 2.5 hours. Since D and I are military ID card holders, we're allowed to use the service, and if I'm going to spend 5 hours in a moving vehicle, I'd much rather do it in one in which I can sleep, read, knit, or just plain not pay attention. I told D that he better get off the airplane as quickly as he can and not to be polite and let little old ladies go in front of him in the customs line. Sorry, little old ladies, but his arrival time is kind of cutting it close to the shuttle departure time. I have a plan B in case we miss it, but I'd really rather not have to activate it. Because it's not free.
So, tomorrow, at this time, I should have a husband here with me (and an almost-done sweater too...planning on getting a lot done on my Amused (link to my project page for Ravelry users) (link to the pattern for non-Ravelers who just want to see what I'm working on) on the bus and in the airport.)
