There's no place like home

Finally home from San Diego.. brought the cold and flu home with me, this just sucks, I can't seem to shake it. Also who ordered the frigid weather in San Diego. It was not above 50 the whole time, and poured rain on Friday... Glad to be home and in my own bed.

The graduation was very nice... When they pinned that SWCC pin on him I was so proud... What an accomplishment, you just don't realize what he did until you see it first hand. The Navy Special Warfare division is wonderful.. They were really educational in helping us understand what our son will be going through, types of deployment, what to expect, what not to expect. He still has months of training before the word deployment enters our vocabulary, so I have some time to adjust. I am amazed that they swim in that nasty San Diego Bay, I am surprised they all don't catch something extremely nasty from that water.... It's the nurse/mom thing...

I met some wonderful parents of some great men. It will be nice to stay in touch.. Maybe between all of us we will get a full story...I thought my son doesn't talk, I seem to have more info the most parents...

It's funny, I was more emotional when he finished boot camp. I see how happy and adjusted he is, and so excited to get started... Maybe it will hit me later, but right now I am just glad he has graduated and in his car headed to his new base...

Congrats on your sons graduation and new chapter! I just found your blog and I've enjoyed seeing a military mom's point of view. I see it from the spouse side but now as a mom to two little boys I see what could be in the future and it scares me!

Hope your feeling better soon!

Congrats to your son and to you Shelly. You raised a fine, strong and wonderful young man there! I know you are very proud, and have every right to be.

Hang in there. I hope you are doing well. Did you shake that flu? I am thinking of you this Christmas.

Buck Pennington said...

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Shelly!

A Soldier's Wife..... said...

Happy New Year Shelly....are you coming back...I miss you!!!!

Whateverman said...

I stumbled across your blog, and hope you get the chance to update it soon. I'm curious to hear how you and the family are doing.

I'm commenting because as I read your "mission statement", I recalled a bit of wisdom I've encountered. Life really is all the stuff inbetween the goals you're trying to achieve; it's not the actual attainment of them.

In other words, it's overly simplistic, but you're in the middle of your life - not on some journey to find it :) It aint very comforting, but maybe might helps you see your current situation in a different light.

Good luck to you and your family - and I hope you reach some happy place that you can call "Home" or "Me" or "What I Want To Be" or whatever. Take care...

Buck said...

Shelly...we're missing you! I hope you're OK.

Claire said...

Hey Shelley,

I am thinking of you, and I miss you. I hope you are doing well. I am saying a prayer for you and your son.

A Soldier's Wife..... said...


I sure wish you would come back and update your blog. I hope nothing bad happened. I miss you!


Karen said...

Hi Shelly,
I've enjoyed reading your posts. Hope to hear from you more. Take care!

Military Moms gotta stick together.
