So Q didn't leave his base today as scheduled, but no worries - he has like a 10-day window to get where he needs to get, and he would have spent that time slacking off there rather than where he is. Still, he sounded kind of deflated - they literally told him just a couple hours before he was supposed to go that they cancelled it. So now all his stuff is packed and he's bored. It didn't help that as we talked we kind of ran out of things to say (I know, shocking on my part) and he got a little miffed, but I was at a loss of things to say other than I love him and that we just have to deal with what comes our way and comfort him with the fact that he'll be home soon.
Bah. I want this to be over.
