Yeah some friends of mine said that we would all go out and celebrate since Travis won't be here! Its okay though because that mean that our next anniversary will be that much better!! I hope to get my call such but i will settle with letters for now!!
Hi Lisa! My son and your boyfriend might just know each other --- that's pretty cool huh?:) What an adorable couple you guys make --- I know you must miss him so bad! Well you've got me and lots of others on here to talk to and support you! I will let you know ANY time I hear from my son -- his name is Erik. Sending you a big hug :)
Man that really ticks me off! I just want to hear from him!! I miss him soo much! Its so hard to get used to hearing, talking, and seeing someone everyday to going on 3 weeks without a word! At least now i have some friends to help me though this! What job is your bf going for? Mine is a MM. I hope that i will get a letter soon! Maybe mine will be in the mail tomorrow! Cross your fingers for me!! I just think it sucks too because Travis is missing Valentine's Day, our 3rd wedding anniversary, and my birthday while he's in bootcamp!! Oh well...I guess I will have to put my big girl panties on and just think just how much greater it will be to see him in April!! Maybe Travis and your bf will become friends...that would be something huh? Well I hope we get our call soon!!

We've been together everyday for the past 5 years so this is like torture for me :( anyway, have you gotten any letters from him yet?
