Got To Hear His Voice For The Last Time For A While....

 my baby boy just went for basic in KY like.. 2 weeks ago and has been in the transition to actual bootcaMP.. HE JUST STARTED THIS MORNING AT 4:30 AM THOUGH. so im sad that he had to be gone those extra 2 weeks for nothing :( but.. oh well.. i got to hear his voice and talk to him for 15 minutes last night and i was surprised i didnt start bawling.. but i tried to stay strong for him.. i almost broke down when he told me how much he just wanted to come back home and how he hated it and how miserable he was and wished he just listened to me and never joined.. it breaks my heart that he is going  into it with that kinda emotion and he is stuck in it for 3 years :(... at least its only 3 years though...

I've already written 3 letters... I'm starting to write every single day so he will definitely never run out of reading material lmao. he has never really been much of a reader or writer though so im worried that he wont write back a lot.. especially cuz he only gets an hour a night to write and he has so much family and friends that ive encouraged to write to him. I really hope i at least get a few decent letters.. I told him I better at least get a full page when he rights back.. he agreed with a little bit of objection haha.. he really does hate writing.. im hoping that not having any other way of communication will encourage him to write more. I tried to explain that its kind of like texting without an instant response. ..... but as much as i joke around.. i miss him too much for any words to describe.. I've had dreams about him the last 3 nights straight that have been so realistic that when i wake up I expect to have my head on his chest and i look around my empty room and cry. it sucks. I hope i start getting a little more used to it soon... :(
