Taking Son to College

Ok, so today is the day we drive up to Tempe to take our only child off to college. It is going to be a really emotional weekend and it will be tough but I will just have to be tougher. Before we go I want to show you something my son showed me yesterday from one of his favorite comic strips, Terminal Lance. I am not sure if the kid who creates these strips loves or hates the Marine Corps but I would like to think he does and honestly his strips are hilarious. I was not offended by this comic strip because this is not a "stereotype" I identify with but I must admit I have known a few "mil-spouses" that do, but this depiction is more the exception and not the rule.

That is hysterical! I love it. Unfortunately, there are more military wives like that out there than I'd like to admit.. I found plenty of them during the last deployment.

LOL, I am so happy you all share my sense of humor LOL...yes I think it is safe to say we have all encountered this person. Right now we are in our hotel in Tempe, the last night for awhile that I know my son is sleeping under the same roof as me. I am going to stay up just to watch him sleep, I am so going to miss this kid. I appriciate you all so much you have no idea..thanks!
