I can't be much support other than I understand. My boy leaves on 8/16. I've been crying off and on for a week. Was dumb enough to watch a baby video yesterday. What was I thinking? He's been out with his friends, going to concerts, eating out and having so much fun and for that I am appreciative. He has a very supportive friend base. Also, he hasn't had to see me melt down but once or twice because he's been gone so much! For that I am grateful and appreciative! I am so proud of him and I know he will be successful. I tell him often how proud I am. What he doesn't know is the upcoming void in my life is GUT WRENCHING... Does it get easier after they leave? Here I am answering your request for support by asking YOU for support.. Forgive me..
I got to hear from my son Wednesday, because he needed some info, was happy i forgot to put something down. He sounded great. I can't wait to see him on Oct 7th. :)
