Four down.....many many many more to go

Today marks FOUR WEEKS since my heart left.  Right now it feels like those first four weeks flew by, but as I think more about it, they really have dragged on. So many ups and downs, so little sleep.

Hubby called me last night, after a week of almost no contact (just a couple of brief emails).  We actually had a pretty good conversation, including the part about Bonehead.  And he got to talk to Knucklehead on the phone, which was pretty cool!

Speaking of cool, I found out today that Bonehead DID get into the Operation Purple Camp that we applied for - he was initially wait-listed, so apparently some of the kids who were originally accepted were not able to participate.  I know my dear Bonehead doesn't 'deserve' to go, but this program is so incredibly POSITIVE, I just can't see taking that experience away from him.  This may be just the break he needs from all the deployment stress.  And it is a SURF CAMP!  He will be camping on the beach all week.

Anyway, we are all hanging in here - doing better than I actually expected to be right now!  Finding ways to laugh, play, relax. 

Knucklehead told me this joke before he went to bed tonight:

"How does a man with no legs cross the freeway?"

(silent shrug from me)

"You take the F out of free and the F out of way"

.....(confused look from me, and then YES I fell for it, I actually FED him the punchline.....)

Did you say it out loud?  I did: "There's no F in way"

OK not necessarily the funniest joke I have ever heard, but from my TEN YEAR OLD????


His laughter alone will get me through the MANY remaining weeks of this deployment. :)

I am glad Bonehead did get into the camp! That will be such a great experience for him.

LMBO...where do kids get these things! Hopefully camp will be good for you're son! I can't imagine what they go through as kids...I'm sure I will be in your shoes one day...for now my kiddos are younger & not quite affected the same since they don't understand as much!

I'm so glad he got into the camp. Hopefully it will be a good experience for him. My daughter was wait listed too - I'm still hoping that she'll get in!

OMG...I actually cracked up out loud at that one. I find it quite humorous.
