Dwayne has been working in Cape Girardeau for the past several months. We were so disappointed after being told he would be working in Fort Leonard Wood, only about thirty-five miles from home to being so far away. He has been staying in Cape during the week and coming home on weekends.
Yesterday, he was told he would be moved to Fort Leonard Wood!!! What a joy!! He hasn't got to work close to home in several years (10 or more). The main benefit will be more sleep, less driving, etc. But when you like to farm and work with cattle in your spare time, this will help him tremendously.
I'm not used to Dwayne getting home until around nine o'clock on Thursday evenings. Zach and Nathan had come over to "hang out" as they termed getting to come over. (I'm a fifty-six year old lady and the kids want to come hang out with me? That's fine with me, I like company and great nieces and nephews are welcome anytime).
Dwayne surprised us by pulling in the driveway around five-thirty. Then we got the good news of the job transfer and we were all excited. Dwayne took us to Road Kill Grill to celebrate. This is an out of the way to most people, but close to our house for living in the country barbecue place. They have good food, clean atmosphere and animals to watch outside the window. Zach had never been there before so he was pretty excited.
I am most grateful my prayers have been answered for Dwayne working closer to home.
