First! This is post #100! Holy crap! I can’t believe it’s my 100th post!
Yesterday was the day. The day I had my swearing in. I’m officially a member of the Canadian Forces RCAF.
Of course it had to have it’s hiccups. Some of my paperwork was incorrect. They had me as AVN instead of AVS on a couple of forms. I wasn’t the only one who had issues. One other guy’s service number was different on one of his pages. A couple of other’s had information missing. Oh and then one guy didn’t have some paperwork to prove his common-law relationship or something. So the whole thing ended up lasting over 2 hours.
There were 8 of us being sworn in today. I was the only girl. I wasn’t surprised by that . I figured that you happen. Oh and the biggest hiccup? The guy calling us up forgot me! The guy doing the oath looked at the other guy because he had one more certificate, which was mine. Saving the best for last I suppose?
So I got my flight details. And apparently I’m the only one leaving this Saturday. Well out of the group of us today. Everyone else leaves either next week or later. I was kind of surprised, especially since 3 of the other guys were AVS as well. Strange.
As many of you heard, there was a shooting in Ottawa yesterday morning. I was stunned. This doesn’t happen in Canada. This is something you’d expect to hear happening in the US. Am I scared? Not really. Yes, I was a shocked. I think as a nation we all are.
Sorry if I’m being very fragmented. It’s hard making clear thoughts and sentences. It’s been an emotional few days. Today was my last day at work. I tried so hard to get through it without shedding any tears. I made it until almost 8:30. Then I began to crack. Little by little. When saying good-bye to one of my managers, I just about lost it. She is awesome and I’m going to miss her and everyone else so much!
Damnit, here come the waterworks again! Just thinking about leaving everyone and having to say good-bye is making me cry again. I’m supposed to be going to the gym today, but I think I’m going to have to cancel. I want to spend some more time with my hubby and family.
