I got the Blues, I got the Blues...I got the "Man I can't stand Mondays and my Marine will be leaving me in five more days BLUES!!!!"

We have had a great time & I have just enjoyed every minute that Billy has been home! I will be working tomorrow and then I will have the next three days off, so the three of us ~ Billy, MR. P & me will be off and running! Nikky & Mike are coming for dinner one night so that they can spend some time with Billy before he goes!

He spoke to his 1st Sgt today and he felt really good after that call and then he spoke to his CWO from Okinawa, he called to check in with him and to see how he was doing on leave & he also told him that "the old place isn't the same without you" ! That really touched me and made Billy feel really good!

I know that I will see him again for Nikky's wedding and we will be fortunate to have him home for the holidays but...I know it's selfish of me, but, I don't want to let him go ~ NOT YET!!! Can’t' they come for him in about 30 or 40 years???LOL!

Until tomorrow, Be Safe & God Bless...please keep praying for all of our troops!


  1. Y'all Marine Moms keep tugging on my heartstrings. I can imagine it will be tough to let him go again, but this time it won't be 18 months before you see him again. Little comfort, I'm sure. Thank you for the sacrifice that you Marine Moms make.

  2. Oh no 5 more days. It's like a touch-n-go landing. Come down - glide down the strip - and take back off.....BWAH...... But true! He's in the states. YAY! And True, he has a vehicle....YAY! and True when they get a longer leave, (96!) HE can take off!!! and make a mad dash for home!! YAY! That's what these guys do. And you and Dad can do the same. LONG travel short time together, but OH SO SWEET! way more often... YAY! Glad he is nearer now..
    Phone calls will be oh SO much better reception and same time zone....and woo hoo...just think of all the positives and the sunny side will take your blues away Marine Mom sis!!! It's all gonna be good! woot.
    Hugs to you. Thanks for praying!

  3. Sorry you're feeling so blue. :( Glad that you'll be able to have some good quality time before he leaves.

    He'll be much closer than last time, so take some comfort in that fact. (((hugs)))

  4. Oh sweetie, I so know how you are feeling!! And nothing anyone says makes it better because it is or son that we have to let go back and it just hurts to leave them again after not seeing them for so long!!! I am here if you need me and know that I love you and we must stick together!!! Enjoy these days!! Love you bunches!!

  5. Oh I am behind on reading my DEAR FRIEND'S Blog! My heart has been full for days and this post just about made it burst:( Time flies when you want it to drag, and time drags when you want it to fly!

    Enjoy every moment you have and just know that he is close enough that you can visit if you want to!

    Love you bunches! Ganky
