On my birthday this year, I reenlisted for probably the last time. This will bring me to retirement eligibility in six years. Feels weird. I decided last minute to have it outside so I could get a few pictures. It was overcast, but thankfully didn’t rain on us!
I feel like we made the most of our Memorial Day weekend.
On Friday, we washed the cars and went strawberry picking.
On Saturday, we celebrated my birthday and I went to my annual trip to the nail salon for a mani/pedi.
On Sunday, the Millikens invited us over for a BBQ. Bob (aka Robert I) and Glenna drove up from South Carolina for the weekend so it was nice seeing them again. The turkeys look like little emus now! I forgot to take pictures…
On Monday, we used Damien’s free movie pass and went to see the Avengers Infinity War movie in theaters. I’ll try not to spoil the movie, but it didn’t end on a good note so Damien and I were pretty bummed. Not really a feel-good super hero movie.
And now we have to go back to work/school tomorrow. In the words of Damien, “No fair!”
Only 3.5 more weeks of school! I know Damien can’t wait, haha. Despite his protests, he’s greatly improved in reading since the beginning of the year!
I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet, but I did get a new job at my squadron. I’ve moved from overseeing an operations training program to overseeing a standards and evaluations program. Basically we make sure all of the operators are qualified to do their jobs and to identify issues. It’s been about a month and I like it so far in spite of its challenges.
In late April, the Millikens finally got their baby chickens and turkeys. They were SOOOOO cute! <3
We got a chance to spend some time with Sarah last weekend so we decided to drive up to the Bounce House in Williamsburg. It was VERY hot outside that day so we wanted something indoors. Sarah was well-behaved, but I did forget how exhausting a busy toddler can be…plus Damien feeds off the energy of others like a superpower.
