While I wouldn’t say that my husband came back from boot camp a “different person” there were some funny things I noticed during his 10 days of leave before heading out to MCT.
First, when I got my phone call the Sunday after the crucible (yes I was one of those lucky people who got a call from their Marine during Boot Camp) I totally didn’t recognize his voice. He was like, “Hi, is this Hannah?” and even though I was expecting a call from him, I was like, “Yes, who is this?” He had totally lost his voice from all the yelling, and all that was left was deep & scruffy whispers. Haha!
I didn’t play any pranks on him, like yelling while he was sleeping to see if he would get out of bed in chaos (I kind of wanted to try though) … my self control and love for my husband paid off because something even funnier happened! One of the days after he got back from boot camp, we were taking a “family nap.” Silas was totally out of it, and June started crying, so I got up to get her so she wouldn’t wake him up. But it apparently didn’t work because Silas sat up in bed with a very blank look. I started talking to him, and he was giving me the “What?” face. He was totally unresponsive… and I though it was really weird. Then a minute later he told me what was going on in his head.
He said that he literally had the last 3 years blanked from his memories, and he was like, “Where am I?” and then looking at me, “Who is that? Oh, that’s Hannah W. I know her from high school speech and debate. I think I married her.” Then looking at June, “Who is the baby? Oh, that’s MY baby!”
Haha! Five minutes of total amnesia!
Anyways, there’s a little bit of Military Wife humor for you! Hope you are all doing well!
Only 2 more weeks until my Marine and I are together! I can’t wait to move into our new home! 🙂
