Yep, he's gone. Yep, it was hard. Yep, I have lost my mind a little. Talk about conflicted! I have never felt so conflicted in my whole life. So very happy for him, so very sad for me. I did good - I didn't cry, but we were supposed to go the next day to the MEPS center and watch his swearing in, but I just couldn't say goodbye twice. He understood and let me off the hook. I will be forever grateful for that. I was going to probably cry the ugly cry. That's probably why he said I didn't have to go - he knows what that is like and it aint pretty! So yesterday was the day. Today I am fine. I don't know about tomorrow. We will see. I am just sending him good thoughts and I know that he will do a great job. This is the official moment he swore in, courtesy of his girlfriend. I hope you all keep him and all the other new recruits in your thoughts and prayers. I would certainly appreciate it! There is now more time to stitch and suddenly, more food in the fridge! Those of you with teenage boys know how they can go through food. See, I have to look at the positives!!
