It was ..is a long tired week .. my hubby had a long week , nice but tired . Doesn’t do well away. My son did well ..had graduated from Basic Training and looked very sharp. As my daughter and I who had to stay back her with work and I who cannot fly made it through the 5 days just fine kept busy had some fun laughing .. and yes moments of feeling sad I couldn’t be there to share this moment with my son.so some sleepless ones. as well .. thinking. Happy the 5 days went fast As we waited till 2 in the morning for my son and hubby to arrive back home and seeing my son in his army graduation uniform walk through the door was priceless he looked tired but confident and sharp . With open arms we went to him . It was nice ! Always love his hugs . As straight as my hair is now from the curly ness when he left he was as bald … we both remarked on each other’s head ( hahaha) he said it felt strange being home .he felt like he was still in Missouri .. Finally settling into bed at 4 this morning we woke to the sound of the shower running ..four hrs later . Him so use to being up he was ready to run get some Christmas shopping done . And then yes the gym .. i felt a little set back seeing him kind of get back to his old self or thought this .. I just wanted to hold on to him . it’s 8 at night and I’m ready for bed and he is home and I guess is on Army schedule still he has settled in for a nine o’clock bedtime like he is use to so I had a bit of a chat with him I told him be patient with me I know you need to do what you need to do and I will back off . He said no do not back off you have every right to say these things I need and want and should rest and spend more time home that’s why I am on this block leave and I should of today so I’m sorry . I guess my son has changed a bit and we will see but I will respect his time as well well it’s time for some sleep I’ll be on here more routinely soon.. but for now please be patient with me.
