At our new installation (Army term for military post), they have a newcomers meeting every month for, well, the newcomers. Jesse and I went on the 18th where I met a couple of very nice girls. My favorite so far has been a nice Dominican woman named Judy. She is married with a 3 month sweetheart named Liana (who Jude is going to marry when they get older…yep, it’s been decided and they are already in love lol).
This past Saturday was Judy’s birthday. Her husband Timothy had to work so I decided to throw her a little birthday party. It was also the first unofficial “Army Wives Club” meeting I’m trying to put together. We had some bubbly. I made her chicken-fried steak, and my friend Ashley baked a chocolate cake.
We had a really good time and it was a fitting day to have a party. You might remember me saying the best thing your child can do in the first year is give you a full night’s rest, and when Judas gave me mine I would have a party. Well, it just so happened that the Friday night, Judas went to sleep at 10pm and did not wake up until 6. I got my party…no confetti, but he did throw up on me, so I think that counts.
