LD in Da House!

Da Goddess @ 13:43

Little Dude has arrived! He’s currently on the sofa with Celia in his lap. She picked him back at the shelter and I somehow think she’s only put up with me and with King Arthur in hopes that LD would soon return.

This week we have to finish up paperwork for his recruiter. Yep, you read that right: his recruiter. USMC. He’s doing an early enlistment deal with delayed entry so he can finish his last year in high school. I can’t even begin to wrap my head around this. At all. He’s my baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaby booooooy! I just…can’t…with this. Sigh.

Since he got here this morning, we’ve made three stops, had lunch, played with cats, and are watching movies because, well, that’s what we do.

Anyhow, that’s what’s going on here today.


  1. I know you’ll enjoy him while you’ve got him! :D

    Congratulations to LD on his career choice. Did he sign on for a specific program?

  2. We’ve had a lot of fun already. And I truly believe Celia’s just been biding her time waiting for LD to return for her. She’s all over him, doing adorable things to him and for him.

    LD’s program is simply early enlistment/delayed entry. After talking with the recruiters today, he’s on the right path. I’d always thought he’d do college first so he could go in at a higher rank/rate, but no, he’s chosen well. Apparently the USMC has cut over 1,000 officer billets this year. Enlisted is the way to go. AND he can get them to cover his educational expenses once he’s in.
