A Marines Girlfriend's Journal...

Ok. So first off a little bit about myself. My name is Mariah (like the singer, yes:roll:) I am 18 years old. I don't feel 18. Lol. I don't think im ready to be considered and adult. I have completely fallen for my boyfriend Brett. We have only been dating for a short 2 1/2 months, but he is everything I could ask for. He is a bull rider and a marine. He ships out for boot camp in August. I am dreading that date. I guess I'm going to have to grow up a alot in a short time. I know I want to stay with him even though he will be gone. Marine boot camp lasts for 3 months. He will be able to come home for a short while but in January he will ship out for the middle east. It scares me so much. But in no way will I let that compromise our relationship.

Welcome to HF!
I'm in a similar, but no way the same situation (My guy is gone for long stretches) and I got to give you kudos for being willing to stick it out. It's tough. Get yourself a good group of girlfriends. I'm sure the marines have similar things like the army with other wives/girlfriends so you can talk to someone who is going through the same. Good luck and hope to see more posts from you! :)

Ok so me and Brett have been fighting alot lately. I think he is scared that when he leaves I won't stay faithful to him. So it's like everyone that calls me is a guy I'm going to leave him for. I really don't understand why he won't calm down and trust me. I would never do that to him. Could never. We had a long talk about it. He promises me that he is trying. He just doesn't want to get hurt. His father died when he was 14 and he and his mother don't have a good relationship. He lives with his grandparents. So his life has not been perfect. Yesterday was a very good day. We got along great and even when my brothers best friend (someone I have kissed before) called me to see if I was in town ( idk why he called really but he is a family friend and is down from the Marines so I couldnt ignore him) Brett got mad but we talked about it and he calmed down. Then decided that it would be the funniest thing in the world to tickle me till I about peed my pants. Well his mooch of a mother (more about that later) is moving back to Alvin so Brett is coming to get me to help. So I have to go shower! Tata for now!!

Hi, there. I'm a military wife, so I can relate. Things are going to get tough, girl. I can't sugar-coat it. But, it sure makes you a strong woman! After 5 years, my husband finally told me something. He said that the entire time they were in boot camp/training, their insstructors would scream at them and tell them their wives and girlfriends were at home cheating on them. Crazy, I know. And sick. They have their reasons for it, but it really hurts a lot of the soldiers. Maybe he has already heard this wrath? Just be prepared and keep comforting him. It's also common for a guy to start developing an attitude before he leaves for an extended period. He will push you away as a means of making leaving your not hurt so bad. You may find yourself doing the same. In the military, things are hard, but the good outweighs the bad. That's what keeps us women around. Lol

Today was a great day. Brett helped me halter break a heifer. That is my current source of income. It pays ok as long as you have customers. I charge 35 bucks a day and the normal period is 3 days. So its about a 100 bucks per calf. It something I enjoy and am good at. You can get some nasty bruises and blisters though. After that we went to his house and ate some weird cajun food. Punz? It's like pig stomach with like sausage in it? It was actually good. Then we watched a movie. He brought me back to my house where we talked to my mom and watched TV. As we were sitting on the couch I couldn't keep my eyes off him. He's so amazing. I have never felt what I do for him before. It's an amazing feeling, love. I was in disbelief that he is actually mine. I can't even describe how much he means to me. All the stars in the universe can't compare. Cheesy, yes, but true.

Ugh. I have to clean. And then I gotta go mess with the heifer. Tommorow I'm getting another heifer that "needs a rough touch" I just think the people are scared of her. I have a heifer named Anabell (born on christmas eve) sweetest lil thing ever. She is already halter broke and you can love all over her, takes a bath like a champ too. Then there's Guppie. Dad bought her from the hoof trimmer (he trims cows not horses so idk if he would be considered a farrier) She is wild as hell. I don't mess with her cause I can't get a halter on her. Also my dad doesn't seem interested in breaking her. I would put her on my donkey Jenny but I'm kinda scared the heifer would hurt jenny. Oh! I almost forgot! The heifer I am breaking is a "fainting" heifer. You pull on her and sometimes she just falls over! Or if you tie her up she will fall over. We put her on Jenny yesterday to see what she would do and sure nuff she hit the ground like a rock. Poor Jenny kept trying to pull her cause its her job. Dad finally got jenny to be still so he could untie that stupid calf. I wish I had a picture!!!

Now that everything I had to do is done I am just waiting on brett. He is riding in a rodeo on saturday. It really scares me when he gets on, but it's something he loves to do and I enjoy watching him even though I can't breath for those 8 seconds. Sometimes shorter. Lol. Last time he got bucked off he got up ran a few steps and collapsed. I couldn't breathe, move, or think. I was stunned finally my senses came back and I ran over to the gate where he was. Turns out he got kicked in the back and was having muscle spasms. Nothing to serious. Though he was quite sore for a few days.

Last night brett came over and we went out to the pasture to check on one of our cows. Turns out she was having her baby. I wish I had pictures! I will get some today. It's a solid brown calf with a white face. Cutetest lil thing! I'm not sure if it's a boy or girl. I think it's a girl but it was to dark to tell.

Brett and I were fighting today. It's like he doesnt listen. But I guess that's every guy. He got mad and told me that if I didnt want to be with him then to just leave. I almost did just to show him what he could lose. It really hurt me for him to be acting like that. He apologized though. Am I to forgiving? We got along great when we came to my house. Played a little catch, lol, he doesnt have a very good arm. Then we rode the four-wheeler. I really do love this guy.
