The Long Awaited Trip Home

My car spent some time in the shop.

And then she spent some time at the shower.

Why? Because my time in Arizona had come to an end. And I will no longer be driving the rental car… which I’ll dearly miss. Seriously… the new 2012 ford focus is an awesome car. I retract all negative statements I’ve made in regards to Ford… they stepped up their game this year.

On January 2nd, I boarded a plane that brought me to the sunny state of Arizona.

On May 3rd, I boarded a plane that brought me back to the (currently raining) state of California.

Before I could do that though, us Lieutenants had to clean all our gear.

We turned it in, processed our paperwork, graduated and off we went.

Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures of graduation. Let’s just say I wanted to get the hell out of there as fast as possible. Pictures were the last thing on my mind.

I pretty much despised 90% of my classmates, therefore making memories was also not a priority of mine.

Steph and I… Tucson bound!! One last trip to Wilko was a necessity before I could leave my love, Tucson.

A big plate of cheese!

We got to bed early and prepared to reunite with the most important people in our lives.

I was so excited when that plane finally hit ground in Sacramento.

I told you I’d be able to fit all my crap back into my bags… Barely.

Today I’ll get to see my family for a few hours and then it’s right back to Army land… only California style this time!

I’m home. She’s baaaaaaaaack!!

  1. Hey Ma’am, your blog is very inciteful. I’ll be starting MI BOLC in September and I was wondering if you can hook me up with some kind of welcome packet or packing list.

    Thank You!!!

    • Hi Ryan,

      If you poke around the internet you’ll find a few packing lists. That’s what I did. But you don’t need much. Just uniforms and whatever else you feel like bringing. If you’re enrolled in the class, you should get a welcome packet emailed to you prior to your start date. Good luck!
