I have been lucky enough to receive a text here & there late at night from loverboy. =) YAY!! I know this is temporary, as he is in "reception" & BCT has not really begun yet. Today I received a brief phone call from him to inform me that my mother's copy of our son's birth certificate will not suffice. Therefore I need to apply for an original to get our son enrolled into DEERS. Sooo that will be on my priority list of things to do tomorrow. =) It was just so nice to hear his voice!! =)

Oh & teeny tiny vent of the day - I love people who are kind enough to open their home to you, but no matter how curteous they are of your needs & space - it's not the same as being HOME. At least I am not completely ALONE, however. =) God shines a little light on everything, doesn't He? =)

For the record, real quick, I will actually start updating a little more regularly now after spending half an hour on the phone with AT&T's wireless tech support. =) & of course now I can also facebook, skype, download music, watch movies, etc etc. Who can live without FBing these days, right?? =) hehe

Anyway, just wanted to quickly update while the little man is napping. I got him home from his cousin's kind of late for his nap because there was just too much fun happening, but I'm sure he will be waking up any moment! =)

Take care, ladies! Keep us in prayer, please. It gets harder as it gets later, as many of you probably know. =\

w/ LOVE♥

Welcome to the Army!

I'm not gonna cry.
I'm not gonna cry.
I'm not gonna cry. =(

Today has been an emotionally exhausting day... however, I still need to take a minute & apologize for being absent here recently! I'm sure I don't even need to explain, because I am positive that you are all wonderfully compassionate enough to understand & will not hold it against me....... right? =) hehe JoOoke! =) There is no doubt in my mind!!
Okay, okay. Here's the deal - I love you all & have missed you dearly ...but I've been trying to spend every single waking moment with my loverboy, my best friend. =)
*sigh* ...& let's just say that saying goodbye today was so bittersweet. Bitter because he is leaving me with a busy little one year old to remember him by & sweet because of how fond our hearts are going to grow for one another. =)
Where is he going? Some of you may be wondering because you are roaming through here aimlessly or perhaps it was never specified, but he is off to BCT (Basic Combat Training) & will be gone for the next 9 weeks. =\
I will be marking the days off on the calendar, waiting with pure excitement for his graduation! =)
By the way, I am hopeful that some of you soldier's wives have some helpful tips or advice for me to stay occupied, something other than staring at my clocks & calendars. I need to stay sane, as well. =) Anything you can offer to me would be much appreciated. =)

As my cousin said to me earlier, "You're in the army now, honey!"

I guess it's ready or not!
