After my teen fool incident yesterday (yes, he came home and apologized and found his Star Wars pen in the bushes.. see last post) I felt some retail therapy was in order. Maybe some some special Christmas gifts for the teen fool. Lol. I can't stay mad at them long. They are so darn funny and cute!
I needed to mail my Christmas gifts to my sweet oldest baby boy overseas. He's in the Navy and if I don't send it this week he won't get it til February. (Lesson learned the hard way last year) I wanted to pick up one more thing. Maybe something Christmasy.
Well, there I am in Target when I am struck by the Christmas spirit in the form of a glittery snowball. That played music!! That had a little 2013 stamped into the base! That suddenly reminded me that my Navy baby will not be back home until next July just briefly. Yes. I will get this for him. So he will hear a little Christmas tune and think of cold weather and snow. And maybe he will think of his family and especially his Mom who cries every week and misses him so much and OMG I have lost it completely in Target. In the Christmas Dept.
I haven't heard his sweet voice in months. We have been able to email about once every two weeks and that's it.
To everyone who witnessed the crazy blonde clutching two snow globes while crying and pretending she wasn't. Who was wiping the snot on her sleeve because she didn't have any tissues on her. I am sorry for my messy display.
To my fellow military Moms out there. Thank you for understanding. It sucks.
