We enjoyed having visitors this past weekend. Not only was my mom here, but 9 of FM’s family came for his Change of Command. It was great to see everyone and I especially liked catching up with Julie, Liz and Linda who I haven’t had a chance to talk to a lot in the past.
One unfortunate note: FG was particularly unpleasant and unsocial. Let’s just say she wouldn’t win Miss Congeniality. More like Miss Anti-Social. I had a long talk with her on Saturday morning and she finally came around and started acting like a normal person, but it was too late for her to apologize to Hayden (and Julie) for her behavior. FG did enjoy her Saturday showing Wally (her other cousin) the neighborhood, playing in the snow and going ice-skating. The evening was spent playing game-boy. All kid fun.
FM’s change of command was wonderful and I was so proud to see him in front of his battalion. Now if only I can do the family members justice. At least I had a great mentor who will no doubt help me through the rough spots and let me know if I’m way off base. Thanks, V.
