Military Wife is the Life for Me

He did it! Went and got himself accepted into officer school.. How proud am I of my husband?! Very!
It just about killed me to wait around by my cell phone for him to call me. I thought he was going in at 11:15. By 1:00 I still have heard nothing. He hadn't even been called in for his interview at this point. But the waiting was worth it I guess. It's finally a real thing. No more maybes and what-ifs. He finishes his paperwork on Saturday and swears in. Recruiter lady says he can expect to leave about 3 weeks after that :(
Ladies... I am going to be sellfish and tell you know that I'm going to need as much support over the next couple of months that I can possibly get. He'll be gone for basic for 9 weeks. Graduate on a Friday and then be put on a bus the next morning for OCS for 14 weeks. If I can just get past these next couple months... at least I'll be home around my family and friends and will have my life here still. I think i'll be okay during the day. It'll be when i lay my head down at night that might get me. But don't get me wrong, I'm very happy about this and am so happy for/proud of Hubs. We're in for an adventure.. that's for sure!

That is awesome that he got into officer school! You will be able to get through it, although I am sure it will be really hard! Dive into whatever project you can think of to keep you busy!

WAY TO GO TREY! and good job Jessica for being so supportive of hubs. Will be thinking of you both and wishing the best.

Yay! Congrats Trey!!! And girl, you will have all the support you need, I promise! We'll all be thinking about you and praying for you. If you ever need someone to talk to - we're here.
And I mean that. If you need my phone number to call and chat, that's totally do-able. :)

Yah - such great news! Congratulations!! I will definitely be thinking of you. From my experience - yes, at night is the hardest and social outings got to me as well, not having a date by my side while mingling with mutual friends and other couples was very hard. My only advice is to keep yourself very busy, any projects you wanted to tackle or classes you want to take, I'd do them now. Amazingly, it was being out there and meeting new people that helped me out too b/c in my situation (boyfriend in Iraq) sadly most of my friends just could not relate and said the oddest things to me, it was the strangers and new friends I met and my blogging buddies that really helped me through it! You'll be fine with family near, too ;)
