Miss Him. He Can't Swim...I miss my recruit today more so than normal. I went to the mall to mail off a scholarship application (we have a post office in the mall). Luckily for me (not) the "Armed Forces Career Center" is directly across from the post office (this is where he went to PT before he left for Parris Island). I saw his recruiter wave and I went inside to say hello. They all pretty much know who I am... I've been to PT with them while James was still going... and once since he left; the recruiters call me by James' last name. I think it's sweet but it makes me remember how much I miss him. lol
Anyway, his recruiter showed me a letter he'd received (from James) who was all "I think people make boot camp sound worse than it is" I was so happy to see that optimism. I read online that week 4 was supposed to be swimming... I asked his recruiter and he kind of nodded. UGH! Over the summer we went to the pool a few times and I couldn't get him to tread water. I hope he doesn't get delayed...
Even on the 10th, he said it was getting rough. I am getting worried. I know he can do it but I'm so nervous for him.
Anyway, I miss him and I'm really trying to not let any negativity seep into the letter I'm writing him tonight.
