Could Things Actually Be Working Out Right?

I’m a believer in Murphy’s Law.  If things can go wrong, they certainly will. This is especially true when you think things are going smoothly.  I usually expect the worst, and then I am pleasantly surprised when things actually turn out a tad better.  That’s how I live my life.

I met my husband the night I was determined to lay off guys for a while.  I’ve screwed up tests I thought I aced, and aced tests I thought I failed.  Actually, when I feel cocky, I get scared.

That’s why, even now, I’m not counting 100% that Soldier Son will be home within the next couple days.  There are still too many things that could go wrong.  The army could decide it made a mistake.  Another sandstorm could delay his departure.  I’m not getting my hopes up until I actually see him in the flesh.  What is even more amazing is the timing.  He was supposed to come home on leave in a few weeks.  By then, however, his brother would have already left for his year-long deployment to Europe and they would have missed each other again.  But, all of a sudden, and with no warning, they moved up Soldier Son’s leave date so he will actually be home before his brother has to leave.  He’ll be home with us to celebrate the Fourth of July with the whole family, by the pool.  That is, if Murphy’s Law doesn’t screw things up.
