Well there goes Claine. Off to bootcamp. Officially gone for 10 weeks to be yelled out and to test his endurance physically in the harshest conditions. Hope he survives. Good luck kid! Its crazy I've known him for like two decades, since I was like 11, and now I prolly wont see him..home.. for 2+ years.
This is the week that Mindy will cry every day/night, whenever she can. The week that Cole starts daycare/school so Mindy can go to work. The week that Braxton might notice a slight difference in plans while his father is away and might write his dad excessivly. The week everything changes for them, and for me. Here we go. I think its interesting how much I -think- it will effect me, but in reality I dont think it effects me -that- much, at least not to notice every day like Mindy.
Mindy will be fine. She'll have her work season and her calling to focus on. The boys will have school and extraciricular activities. She'll just need some help picking up the kids from school and babysitting some evenings due to work and RS calling. And there I'll be for her.
I have this crazy feeling about how fast time will fly for us all. Well, everyone cept Claine, it might seem to go too slow for him. January is almost over and he'll be done in April. Braxtons (Feb), Coles (March) and mine (Apr) bdays later he'll be done. Crazy. I think it'll go fast. And then it'll be time for them to pack and move to CA and me to pack and move to SLC with mah dog. Exciting, but fast at the same time. I think its interesting how much I -think- it will effect me, but in reality I dont think it effects me -that- much, at least not to notice every day like Mindy.
My dog apparently has three lumps, two under his armpit areas and one on his chest. Sigh. Something else to worry about. Just when I get him as my dog, and mine alone, he'll prolly decide to up and get sick and slowly die on me. He's like 8 or 9 years old. They lived in that house for like 7-8 years and he was like 1 or 2 before he moved in with them. Please dear God don't let him suffer.
