The navy is calling David two weeks earlier than scheduled, which is creating some problems on the ground here, most notably ruining his plans to attend his best friend's wedding at the end of the month. We also had to reschedule his going-away party, which wasn't such a big deal; but I'm glad I came down early or it would have trashed my visit as well.
Then there's the mysterious case of the disappearing baptismal certificate that never seems to make it to Point B once it was put in the mail at Point A. We've tried twice already, and it seems like we'll have to bother them for a third copy.
It seems like we should be able to get so much done in the time we have left, but we end up waiting for paperwork that never gets filled out, contracts that don't get printed, and mail that never comes.
