It's already started

Hubs sent me a link to a page talking about Marine graduation - what to expect, what to wear, what you should do while you're there, that sort of thing. Well, at one point, it tells you to not, repeat, NOT bring kleenex to the graduation, take a whole roll of Bounty paper towels - per person, to mop up your tears. Just reading that, along with the other stuff on the page made me cry already, I'm going to be a basket case by the time the actual graduation happens. Along with hubs, me, WE and my FIL, 4 of Angel #1's friends are going to go to the graduation, though I'm not sure if he knows about the friends coming or if they want it to be a surprise. Either way, he's going to be so excited to see them. We've also got a friend in San Diego who's going to meet up with us while were there and we'll have a big junk food party for him at the hotel the night he graduates. I'm getting so excited to see him. It was bad enough this summer when I hadn't seen him in 2 months, but at least then I could talk to him. Now it'll be 3 months with limited contact and I know that he's been working his butt off and is homesick. WAAH! I want my baby!

Just make sure those paper towels are soft, or your nose and cheeks are going to be awfully sore. He won't be your baby anymore; the U.S. Marine Corps has made him a man. :-)

Looking forward to hearing how things go! I'm so proud of him and I don't even know him. :D
