Excited for July!!

I just made the final arrangements for my trip in July. I'm going to be going to Oklahoma for my boyfriend's army boot camp graduation. His mom has been keeping in touch and yesterday she reserved our seats and last night my dad and I called the airline and actually booked my ticket. Then today, she talked to me and said that the hotel rooms were reserved and I'll just have to pay for my room once we're there. The only thing I'm kind of unhappy about is the fact that my boyfriend's dad is going. I can't stand that man because he's been pretty horrible to my boyfriend. It's definitely not fun pretending to be nice and I don't think I'm going to do it on this trip. I'm not going to be rude, but I'm not going to go out of my way to talk to him and be extra friendly. I'm not going to let him ruin the time we have with my boyfriend. I'm really looking forward to seeing him again and just being able to hug him and talk to him. I was pretty happy all day knowing that the plans are set and I'll be seeing him soon in July. I even bought a cute mini duffel bag today from the store I work at. Getting everything together makes the plans feel real and that I'll be seeing him soon :)

I am happy to hear that your boyfriend finished boot camp! That can be hard to do actually. I've been to Oklahoma many times in my life. I'm sure you will have a nice time. Don't worry about his father. Trust me, just ignore him and smile for your man. It's just a trip and won't last long until you are back home. I have in-laws that I cannot stand, but I realize it's not worth getting angry over, and no one has the right to take away your smile! I am just so happy for the both of you, and I know you are so excited! Flying is also a lot of fun! I think it's great that your parents are helping you to get things ready for the trip. Just remember, when his father is not so nice, have a picture of your sweet parents in your mind to help you remember the love they have for you. I wish nothing but the best for you and your man. Thanks for this discussion!

Thank you so much :) I'm definitely going to listen to your advice and I'm not going to let anything bother me on that trip. My boyfriend and I were able to do that in Disney when his dad was being a huge jerk. We're able to ignore the bad things around us and just enjoy being with each other. The trip still seems far away though lol :( But I'm excited getting all the things I'm going to need and the outfits I'll bring on the trip. I've been looking forward to seeing him graduate since before he even left so I'm not going to let anyone or anything ruin the few days we have to see him. I get so excited thinking about it and I just can't wait to be able to hug him again

The best thing ever is happening to you and all u should be thinking about is him. He is fighting for all of us and we want to know your happy with him.. I hope he has a ballon for you when you get there. You should also ask him for one of his shirts so you can sleep in it. I got one of waynes and it made me feel close to him. Spray some of his favorite fragrance on it and walk around feeling high on love. have a safe trip.

Yeah, I think that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to focus only on him and I'm not going to let anything get to me or ruin the time I have with him. Him and I were able to do that in Disney despite his dad being a total jerk, we still had fun together because we enjoyed being around each other. Before he left he gave me a bunch of his old t-shirts from his job at Outback as well as some other shirts that didn't fit. I wear them to bed and they still smell like him :) When he was still able to talk to me, he told me he had a whole bunch of army shirts and shorts and he said he'd give me some to sleep in :) The other day I also smelled a sample of the cologne he uses and it brought back so many memories of him and it made me feel so good :) I'll let everyone know more about the trip once I'm back :) It's not until July but I'm still excited getting in all the final preparations

I am glad that you are going to see your boyfriend soon. Thank him for his service and for protecting us. I know how hard it can be to pretend to be nice to somebody, but for your boyfriend's sake you have to. This is an important day for your boyfriend and I feel that it is important that you to be there to support him. How long will he be home? I hope you get to spend a lot of time with him before he is sent on his next assignment.

I'm not going to be mean but I'm not going to fake nice to his dad. When I sit back and think about it, I'm so tired of all the drama with his parents and I'm done getting emotionally involved. So now, I'm just going to sit back and just leave myself out of things, even if it means not really talking with his family the way I used to. Unfortunately, my boyfriend won't be home in July :( I'm only going out for a few days to see him graduate and then he has to go on with more schooling. October is when he'll be able to come home for a few weeks. Until then, I have to patiently wait.
