My hubby started AWAT last Friday and should start ABH school on the 8th, he just found out today! I have been to Fl. but not to Pensacola, I was planing on going but since he will be done at the end of the month I think I will just stick it out! With Spring Break ticket prices are CRAZY! How about you?
I would think that he will. it just might take a while to get to him though. I still haven't gotten any thing from him so I'm not really in a good place. I've been trying to stay positive and continue writing to him. What does your boyfriend talk about? has anyone gotten into trouble is that why they haven't gotten to call? Girl I'm going nuts and I don't know what to think.
lol by the time I had his address I had 10 letters ready to go!
including a Christmas card..... I just had the kids write to him, (our
neices and nephews), no kids of our own yet :( so he should enjoy
those.... I miss him like crazy, some days I feel like we are in over
our heads and others I remember why we are doing this.... I never
thought it would be so hard!
I write a letter everyday, and mail 3 at a time in the same envelope.... I put pictures of me and our dogs, our nieces and nephews, i
include cute/funny illustrations I draw.... i keep it pretty
creative.... and I went and bought some decorative 3x5 note cards from the book store and every 3rd envelope I mail I include a note card with a quote of encouragement..... I googled quotes of strength and encouragement and send him those.... some are cheesey but I know they will put a smile on his face!
hi! no no mail here, no phone calls.... but my husband told me not to be upset if he didnt write, its not that he does not love me or miss me, he told me he was going to try not to think about missing me because it will make it that much harder on him having to be away, and he wants to do very well.... he told me he plans on using any spare time very wisely.... so... yeah... he is a very focused person..... so I may or may not get letters.... it would be nice though!
