Okay, this is what's happened since I last wrote:
Life is fine
Went to San Diego for a weekend to watch WE graduate Basic Training
WE is now a Marine
The new Marine is currently home on leave and getting bored and ready to go back to work
The living room still isn't done being remodeled
I guess that's it. Look at all the time I could save by only doing monthly recaps rather than writing something every week.
Oh, we did do something fun in San Diego. WE's girlfriend and I flew out and met hubs, his dad & Angel #1 for the basic training graduation. WE hasn't seen any of us since he left back in July. I told his girlfriend that he was going to hug her first and she seemed to think that because I was his mother, I'd get the first hug. So I devised a plan. When the guys were dismissed and allowed to come over to their families finally, all of us stood in a long line and nobody could move, so WE had to make the decision who was going to get first hugs. (yeah, I'm kind of mean that way) He took one look at us and knew what we were doing and said: are you really going to do this to me?? I was right, the girlfriend got the first hug, which is fine, I'm sure she missed him more than I did.
