In Yuma I was a hermit. I even stopped going to MOPS and story time after a while for many reasons. Basically we didn't leave the house. We spent a lot of time in the yard in the pool when it was cool enough and we played inside a lot. Now that we are home all of that has changed, we are on the go! Between play dates and interviews and 5-6 trips to the gym a week it seems like something is always going on.
When I took this calendar out of the box it was marked for December 2012! I hadn't needed to update it since then because we didn't do anything! Now I even have Will checking the calendar every day to see what I am up to. I love it, I love doing something and having my kids play with other kids, I especially love being able to get out of the house on my own! I might not see my family all the time but just knowing that they are down the road and a phone call away from a play date is very comforting.
Hopefully I will have a job soon so all of this will change but even then I will have a different calendar filled with things just for me and my work! This, my friends, is one of the best parts about life after the army. It really makes me smile.
