On Saturdays I usually write an update about Ben. However, I haven't received a letter from him in 3 weeks, and he hasn't called me in 11 days. I have no idea how he is doing, and frankly I am a bit ticked off about it.
Facebook has a page for the fort that he is at, and a bunch of parents, wives, girlfriends, etc, get on and ask questions or brag about getting letters and phone calls. Several say that their loved one from Ben's platoon called them this week. Yeah, ok, then how come I didn't get a call??
I know Ben is devoted to me, and there must be a really good reason he hasn't called me yet, but all I can say is that it better be a good one!
I am going through all the phases of a loved one feeling left behind and forgotten. First I was depressed, then extremely sad -- lots of crying and begging for the phone to ring (this lasted for a couple of days). Now I am in the anger phase. Ben better sound really sweet and loving if he calls me in this phase, because I am not a happy camper!
What phase comes next??
