My husband just made me cry!! He isn’t one to say I love you a lot and he isn’t overly affectionate. He has been so great lately! At the moment, he is downstairs in his ‘mancave’, playing Call of Duty. He is really loud when he plays, so I can hear him upstairs. He just sent me an email and all it said was ‘I Love You!’. I think the thought of him leaving us is really starting to hit home.
The screensaver on his computer is this:
Our 4 year old looked at it and asked where our house was. We told him it was very far away and wouldn’t fit on the map, but he doesn’t comprehend that. At least we know where he is going once he gets there. I know he is excited about getting out of here and being able to deploy again. He doesn’t feel like a real Marine her. T minus 44 days until he leaves.
