DH just texted me and said cryptically "You'll have to kennel the pets it looks like". Long story short, I'm going on vacation *very soon* and DH was staying back with the pets. Yesterday he had said that they shortened the list of the guys re-deploying to only a few. Sounds like he's one of those small few
I guess on the plus side, the airline tickets i bought they said are good for a year through southwest, so if i cant go, they will apply the money i paid to new tickets in my name if i use it by may of next year.
