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!
