Today is the fifth Sunday spent without my husband. We had three before Exodus and have now had 2 since. His platoon is only allowed calls on Sundays, when they are earned. Guess how many Sundays I have heard my sexy husband’s voice? If you guessed zero, you deserve a prize.
This sucks. I knew there would be weeks without calls. I just did not think it would be every week. I heard today from a wife of a guy in the same company, different platoon. According to her husband, there are a couple people who have decided they do not want to be there and have said numerous times that they are getting in trouble on purpose. How insane and immature is that? My husband has a 2 and a 4 year old who want to talk to him. He has a son with a critical heart condition that he likes to be updated on. He has a son who needs surgery and he does not even know it yet.
Honestly, I am luckier than the other wives in his platoon. I got 2 extra phone calls the week of Thing1’s appointments. So, I have gotten 7 calls already. All of those were before Exodus. Tomorrow is 2 weeks since I dropped him back off. We only have a little over six weeks left until graduation. (Although I am paranoid they are not going to graduate on time.) This is so hard. I need to hear his voice. His voice will tell me if he is doing okay. I need to know he is. I miss him.
