    The Wonderful World Of The Emotional Rollercoaster

    Anyone who had a loved one in any branch of the military knows this ride all too well, and sadly for us, it isn't a ride we can get off easily. Just when you have one foot out of the rollercoaster car, the ride takes off again. I am (of course) no exception to this wonderfully...

    I was debating whether it not to post something

    but I don't know where else to go. I found out a couple days ago that my sailor won't be home for two weeks like we thought. He'll be here for one week and he comes home the day of our wedding..we are trying to get him home the night before. I know I should be happy about...

    My sailor passed battle stations!

    Got to hear from him today and he surprised me by telling me he asked everyone in advance to let us have the whole day after graduation to ourselves. He said he wants to make up for all the dates we couldn't have. 6 more days!!!

    Those Moments..

    So tonight I'm laying here after writing my boyfriend a letter, and it's one of those nights.. One of those nights where it just feels like you want to go buy a plane ticket and be with him, just be near him, even if it's only for a little while. You miss everything about him...

    My boyfriend just left

    for basic training on Monday. I've been trying to stay busy and not think about him being gone, but it's so hard to ignore the obvious. I've already written two letters ??Hopefully this will get easier.

    One day, he looked at me

    and said, "Baby, I'm sorry for the Navy thing. I hate to put you through this." I looked him in the eyes and said, "I'm sorry for going to medical school to be a cardiologist." He said, "What do you mean? That's been your dream. I can't hate you for that." I said, "and I can...

    So my sailor tells me today

    that he doesn't want to talk on the phone as much, which is totally understandable because he's busy at power school. I'm surprised that he's been able to talk to me as much as he has. To be honest I'm happy about this but also a bit disappointed. I'm happy because we do talk...

    Hey ladies! Just sharing an idea with you all.

    I noticed everyone was buying ribbons for their SR and I was going to get one too but I decided on going a different route. I'm not much of a ribbon person to begin with (don't worry I got him a challenge coin) so instead I got a necklace with his initial on it from etsy.

    We sent him off to A-School today.
