Married to the Army and a good man

On Friday David was sworn into the Army for 3.5 years. I'm not even sure I said that right. But anyway, it's sort of a crazy thing. And tonight I am feeling sort of solemn about it.

If you know David, you are probably shocked.  You see, David has a free spirit. He usually does the opposite of what he is asked/told to do. Not that it's a bad thing, it's just who he is. Always has been. So following orders from a Captain, or "higher ups" doesn't seem to fit him. But it does!

This is a bragging blogger post. I apologize. It's just as much about him as it is about me. He is getting an "A" in a 6 credit hour Chinese class. He studies for hours a day. And he speaks/writes SO well because of it. It's sort of strange to hear him talk because it's so beautiful. It's almost like singing. Sometimes I'm not sure it's even him talking because it's so different, so flowy, so amazing!

In the Army, he is also well respected. He is many years older than most of the other cadets yet he outruns most of them! They once said it was because he has to chase his kids around all day! lol. His captain and the guy above him (I don't know his rank) have gone out of their way to help him and our family out. But that is another post for another time.

This post originally started as a recap of Sadies birthday, but I've run out of time. I love my hubby very much and someday when he reads this, I hope he knows that! Sorry it's so mushy but I just can't help it!


  1. Lisa,

    This IS NOT bragging! This is you expressing feelings for your husband. That's okay in my world! And in fact, I think it's not only okay, but encouraged! I love your blog entry. You may not like mine. Mine are what you call "mushy" more than not. And if this is bragging, then I probably brag all the time.

    Thanks for sharing! You guys are awesome and it's fun to live in the same place as you.:) Love ya!

  2. My Bro. just joined the Army...Not sure how I feel about it. Glad to hear your experience isn't bad.

  3. Your life is going to change big time! In some ways, it will be good, and in some ways it will be hard, but I think you guys have made the right decision for your family. Good luck, and remember, I am always here for you! xoxo
