Wow, only -- days left until my honey jets off to boot camp. I'm getting nervous, sad, excited... there's so many emotions roiling through me. I've been through this once before, when he had gone through basic in Fort Knox, so I know what to expect... but it's different this time. This time his contract doesn't have the option to say "no." This time it's for real. And this time is the beginning of the rest of our lives. It will only be what we make of it, and we plan to make it an awesome and beneficial experience. The Navy will be our life. And I'm okay with that. In fact, I look forward to it, because without it we wouldn't have a life, not the one we hope for anyway.
