    Just checking in...It's sooo quiet!

    I guess everyone is sitting in a lawn chair by their mailbox? I'm heading back out now to wait:wink:

    Good luck everyone!

    Nothing in the mail yesterday. Maybe today...

    DS has classes all day and then goes straight to work so I'm the lone stalker today.:popcorn1:

    Riverdale,

    Keep the faith and treat the mailman well. We had to chase him down last year and ask him to go thru his mailbag to see if the BFE was there. Good luck again and hope to hear the good news soon.

    TWE?

    We thought we had a TWE yesterday but it was just a letter that says DS's application is going before the review board. False alarm.
    Good luck to all!

    Tomorrow?

    Nothing today..

    Did almost have a coronary as my daughter and I heard the truck and watched out the window -- the truck pulled up and stopped, he put mail in the box, and then put the truck in park and grabbed......!!??......two packages for DH. Ugh!! My heart was pounding so hard -- I was thinking, "Oh my gosh he's really gonna get a BFE this time!!" Maybe tomorrow...:thumb:

    Coastiemom, Suzie, and Sculler Dad -- your kind words and good wishes mean a lot, thank you.:smile: This waiting is so hard.

    Ozzy's Mom -- I remember you from last year! Oh I'm so glad to read a post from another mom that is going through this a second time too!! Good luck!!:thumb:

    I had a dream yesterday morning that Ozzy received 2 BFEs - Must have been one from the USCGA and the other from USMMA. I woke up before they were opened. Then that afternoon we received the letter that he was under review by the board. I hope that was a good omen. Ozzy is on the hold list at USMMA and I won't be surprised if he ends up on the wait list at USCGA. I will be putting the $500 deposit down at Cal Maritime next month regardless (have to have a backup plan).
    Best regards,
    Ozzy's Mom

    Good luck to you all. We stalked until April 15 last year with TWE from USNA and false alarms along the way. It is gut wrenching. No matter what happens, these kids are truly the best and the brightest, and they will excel no matter what path they end up taking. Hang in there. :thumb:

    Riverdale,
    I am so sorry to hear about the TWE. We are still waiting. Please check out the COLLEGE STUDENT PRE-COMMISSIONING INITIATIVE (SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM) on the gocoastguard website. That is part of the plan C for my DS.
    Best regards,
    Ozzy's Mom

    Went to the mailbox and there is a twe from the Academy. My heart sunk and I burst into tears...couldn't stand it so I opened it to find out DS app is ready for review! OMG!! I earned a weeks worth of gray hair today! I feel like my team just scored the tying run in the bottom of the 9th for the world series!!!
