I have been here for a little more than a week and I am completely in love! The weather is awesome. Our house is nice and roomy. There is a ton of shopping and stuff to do. And? Living with my husband? It is WONDERFUL! I am cooking meals and baking treats again and enjoying it. It does not feel like a chore anymore because I have a husband to enjoy it and to thank me for making food!
We went to a birthday party last weekend! I had met a wife online a few weeks ago whose husband is in Armydad’s unit. They had a birthday party for their daughter. The boys had a blast and were so happy to meet a friend! We had them over for dinner a few days later. It is great to have friends to hang out with! Today, the boys and I are supposed to meet another mommy and her sons who I met online. We are meeting at the splash park on post. Plus the family across the street from us have a son who will be starting kindergarten this year like Thing1!
I am so happy to be here and doing so well. From what we are hearing, we should have quite a bit of time before we need to worry about a deployment for Armydad. I am so glad for this. It will give me a lot of time to settle in, make friends, and find a support group before I face that.
For all the crap we went through to get to this point, I am so thankful we are here and we went through it because we are in a great place!
