Yes it does sound like they are taking lessons from each other. I hate it when he doesn't answer the questions i ask. Especially since we are also planning a wedding. Well they will be able to anwer them here soon. Please let me know if you hear from your husband about battlestations on tuesday.
Wow, that must be so frustrating for you! Not knowing. Although that is just the way it goes I guess. I saw that you were frustrated at his letters, I totally felt the same way a couple of months ago when I finally started getting letters from my husband. He would say things like "other than that it's same old, same old" and I wanted to scream at him SAME OLD? NOT REALLY. EXPLAAAAIN. His letters got better, though. And the phone calls were a great time for questions to be answered. So are you planning on moving to San Diego after he graduates? I'm assuming you will wait until the school year is over.
My license will be grades 4-9 Language Arts & Social Studies. I graduate in May. Your job sounds amazing, I would love to do that.
LOL, well I hope he doesn't push you to insanity! The difference is : yours is your husband (A MAN), and mine is my daughter (compliant!) ha ha So sorry. You should write a letter and complain about him not writing and get emotional and then get some water droplets and sprinkle them all over the paper! do you think he'd get the hint?
Hi! I can't seem to reply on the discussion board?! Well, I'll talk to you here :)
I teach ESL (Grades 4-8) in a NYC public school. I actually started about 2 months ago and so far is been going good :) I miss my husband a lot though and you're right, I get "recharged" every time I see his letters.
Right now, I'm kinda going crazy about the whole A school thing. I have heard different things about where his A school is gonna be. I have been imagining us spending the whole weekend together and I don't really wanna accept the fact that it might not happen the way I see it :( Some people say his A school might be moved to San Antonio and some say it's still in GL (he's a Corpsman). I'm really really hoping it'll be in GL so I can keep him for the weekend :)
