So like I said, we got Elder Harris' itinerary. His parents told me they plan on bringing him straight home after they leave the airport :) (BTW I have decided not to go to the airport. Hence, the smiley face. We get to have our own 'moment'!!) Now, this story may not mean anything to any of you but if you know Elder Harris' dad you'll understand ;)
Since Elder Harris will arrive so early I was a little nervous about him even being able to get released that early. His dad has been telling me that he was going to talk to the Stake Pres to get it all set up and let him know exactly what time they would be home. He's been telling me that he would talk to him since the day we got the itinerary.
Soooo... On Sunday in between Sunday School and Relief Society I got a text from Elder Harris' dad saying he talked to the Stake Pres. I was so excited. So of course my response was "what did he say?!?!" I was not ready for what came next. He said:
"The Stake Pres will be going out of town and won't be back until Saturday night and he won't be able to release Elder Harris til Sunday morning."
FYI, November 19th (the return date) is a THURSDAY! Nooo!!
So, through Relief Society I was FREAKING out on the inside thinking about what I was going to do if he didn't get released til SUNDAY! A whole 3 days after he gets home :( I couldn't respond to the text to get more details cause by that time Relief Society had started, ugh! Needles to say, I did not focus durning the lesson. Horrible, I know! I just had to tell myself that I would just have to leave town that weekend and just come home and see him for the first time at his homecoming! NOOOO! That would kill me! Literally! What kind of welcome home would that be??
Anyway, after church I finally got to text back and I told his dad how I was freaking out and all, so he said:
"I'm just messing with you. He gets released at 5."
AHH, I really did just want to cry! What the heck hahaha! It really is funny now. I should have expected it coming from him but I won't lie, I am relieved! Phew! Now I guess all I gotta worry about is keep myself composed til 5 o'clock!
