omg... my son.. my one and only son.. my .....baby
... now officially belongs to uncle sam ! he went yesterday and completed his physical for the us navy, and was sworn in immediately thereafter.
definately mixed emotions racing around here... on the one hand happy, excited, proud... and on the other waaaaaaaaaaaahhh !!!
but...... since his sister is getting married in may, and he really didn't want to miss her wedding, he won't be going to bootcamp 'til august.. it was either april or august.. so he decided to wait 'til then. but he's still officially already "in".
well, that will give us the summer together yet.. we can go tubing down the river, have cookouts, and enjoy his time with us before he heads off to bootcamp. he has a job interview
monday with office max.. worked for them while he was out in tucson, so he'll have enough income to get him through the summer as well.
ok.. just thought i'd share and get it off my chest... needed to do something with all these crazy feelings ! thanx for allowing me to throw it all out there! sniff! sniff!
one minute i'm jumping up and down all happy and silly, the next i'm all :uhoh21: ......
gotta go on over to the navy website now and have them rush me one of those "my son is in the navy" stickers...

His motivations are not "pure".....that is ok with ME. Mine were not, either. But I am a veteran as well as military wife, so --- I know how hard it can get.......and...
he will makes some serious sacrifices nonetheless; his motives are not my concern......I am glad he is stepping forward to serve, no matter what motivates him. So jnette,for that, I THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
