    Awesome! Just be aware that the phone call will be short and to the point. If you don't get much emotion out of him don't be discouraged. The CC's are right on his ass the whole phone call. Keep us updated on whats going on!

    I cant wait the first thing im going to ask him is ...is he happy with his decision still? I just need to know, I’m not sure if that is the right question to ask or not but as a mom I need to know...And if he is ok will be the next ..I know the call will only be a couple min long but I cant wait to hear his voice. I have not got a letter from Danny since the 26th so im going crazy with Worry so I cant wait for Tuesday updates and hopefully a letter. Even more so I cant wait for the phone calls, so I can relax and stop worrying like crazy.

    Oh Julie,

    Those phone calls are going to be something else!!! I've been reading about the phone calls from Quebec company and have been shedding tears of joy for them. I will probably be crying so much I won't be able to ask questions. I've been looking up info on all the stations that Ty put on his dream sheet and I've saved everything and he probably won't get any of his picks. I just hope I can keep it together long enough to understand where he is going.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed in hopes that you get a letter tomorrow.

    Seriously, keep the crying for after the call. He is going to attempt to tell you a fair amount of information in a very short amount of time. Once the phone is on the hook and you are done, bawl like a baby if you need to or want to... but on that phone call, hold it together, try not to ask any questions, just listen. They are under time constraints. Plus if you get too emotional it migt cause them to be emotional and they do not want their CC's seeing them get all weepy.

    I was all smiles and ok, ok, ok, ok, ok.... while I was talking to him. We hung up, I turned to look at Scott and started crying! Poor guy was just standing there and all of a sudden a smiling mom was a blubbering idiot! LOL

    That’s what I was thinking about , I did not want to upset Dan as the CC's are right there. Im sure I can hold it together for his sake. But after when I hang up, wow the water works will hit ha-ha.. I think the shock of listening to him, sounding like a completely different young man will keep me together....I hope LOL

    i cant call dans for some reason his cell has a bad problem of the voice mail resets to the message he had when he was about 10. He sounds so young and he talked so fast to, we have called verizon so many times for them to fix it which they do than in a couple days it sets back to the old one again.

    Hi All......
    This is going to be an exciting week for all of us.....I know we are all so excited....and when you think about how fast the next 3 weeks will go.....hopefully!!!!!
    I go on my sons facebook too, just to see pics of him.....guess we all do what we can to get by! Tori and Tina....nothing wrong with calling his cell phone....honestly I did not think of it! Although in a letter he asked that one of his brothers send a text from his phone to his girlfriend just to make her feel good! Thought that was cute....
    Tuesdays journals......Thursday on.....prepare those phones......
    just  a quick question.....does your recruits actually have the numbers written in front of them to call home or cells? just because in this day and age of cell phones.....you cannot pick up a pay phone and scroll to MOM and have it dial.....LOL.....I know that sounds funny, but it was a last minute thing we thought of and then quick wrote all our numbers down for him when he does call.....
    you may want to pop a letter out in case they do not!

    Hi Gals...Guess we're all in the same boat. Well, except for Tori...That's her husband. You have no idea how many times I have looked at old text messages of my sons and have been on his Facebook sooo many times, I feel like a stalker...Hahaha. This week we finally should hear their voices again, even if it is for a short period of time. I am affraid to let my phone out of my sight for fear of missing that call.
    We are all counting the days now and I'm sure they are as well. Can't wait!! I will post as soon as I hear anything. Please do the same...

    As excited as I am to hear where my son is going to be stationed, Honestly I am just as excited for everyone else as well.....I cant wait to hear where they all will be going.
    Bummer is I will be away from my computer most of the weekend.....although I am sure I will manage some peeks.....but the weekend is pretty full.....I will be running up to check when all the calls came and how they went! 1 week.....

    The truth comes out ..... I'm not the only stalker!!!!

    We don't have a home phone anymore, just cells - so before Tyler left I had him write all the numbers down in an address book that he took with him. I wanted to make sure that he knew my number and had it written somewhere. Before he left he was writing down all the numbers from his cell phone. He had 2 pages of phone numbers so when he gets his liberty he has the numbers to call all his friends too.

    I even carry's dans phone around with me just incase he forgets. Maybe he would call that as he know I have it on me. He would not get a phone book, So he wrote the #'s down on a tiny tiny piece of paper ha-ha. While I was cleaning his room today I found his past school I.D’s for the past maybe 6 years they gave me a good laugh .

    Good Morning family and friends of R 181,

    Yes, it's an exciting week for all of us! Can't wait for that phone call and hear Ian's voice and know where he will be. He wants somewhere warm and was hoping for district 7 which is FL, GA, SC I think. I told him to go to ALaska...and he might take that as an interim station while waiting for his school. So, I am anxious to hear how it all worked out...

    Julie, I am sure Danny is fine...hope you hear from him this week! I know about the emotion thing...We have to stay strong when they call. Let's hang tough ladies! If our boys can do it, so can we....Unite Romeo 181 moms!

    Have a great day everyone and get those flags out!

    I think the calls can come at anytime starting Thursday to as late as Tuesday. With a large company and limited time to call each day - it's a toss up.

    Lynne,
    are you done school for the summer? At least if you are that is good that you will not be teaching a class!!!!!
    yeah, not knowing when the call is coming is going to keep all of us on our toes!!!!! Even though I have my cell phone next to me at all times, I will still be like the lady in another thread who ran in the house and fell over her dog trying to answer the phone! and like Julie, I really hope I am not driving when he calls!!!!!!
    Oh well....fasten your seatbelts....week 5 is here......let the chaos begin!!!!!
