I know I've been really quiet- I haven't blogged in almost a month! To tell the truth, this is because I was allowing myself time to have a little pity-party. Jason reported for duty in Ft. Lee, VA on Feb. 7th, and I've been single parenting for most of the last three weeks. This is pretty much the reason why I told Jason (just months into our relationship) that I would leave him if he ever joined the military. Well, never say never. I find that those types of ultimatums don't generally work in a marriage (at least in a marriage that lasts), and so now I find myself being something I thought I'd never be, an Army Wife.
I'm adjusting to this idea (slowly) and realizing that I actually don't have it so bad. Jason is now in Charlottesville for the next 10 weeks and should be able to come home most weekends. This is certainly much better than not seeing him at all for the full 18 weeks of JAG training. He came home last weekend and we had a nice time, although I think he was a bit disappointed that I vetoed so many of his weekend plans: buying a new car, buying a new computer, getting a dog.
Hopefully I'll get back to taking pictures and writing regularly, but until then, feel free to check out some of the blogs of Jason's classmates:
