You guys. I miss you. So much. Do you miss me? (Say yes! Validate me! Validate me!)
Can we talk about the last three weeks? Holy bejeezus. I don’t even know what happened.
Oh, wait. Yes I do. Night Stalker returned. And hasn’t left. And turned into Day Stalker as well. The. Child. Won’t. Sleep. Between teething and a nagging cough, the kid is a mess. And she’s turned me into a mess. Couple that with an abnormally busy social calendar, and no blogging for me. We all know I can only blog regularly when I maintain my shut-in status.
But things are looking up. Elisabeth’s cough is clearing up and she’s starting to return to napping. The cough that she gave me is starting to clear up, too, so maybe one night this year I’ll get an uninterrupted night of sleep. (Seriously, we are ALWAYS sick now! Always!)
Last night I went to bed at 9:00. Yes, that happened. I’m planning on doing that again tonight, so let me just give you a quick recap of my goings-on this past month.
-I bought a juicer. So that was exciting.
-My friend Claudia moved. It’s quite sad. Soon there is going to be a mass exodus of VFA-115 spouses. It’s part of the Navy life. But a really crappy part. Luckily, before the actual good-bye is always a good-bye party.
-I helped plan and attended a Cinco de Mayo luncheon with a group of Japanese Officer Spouses. Have you ever seen Japanese women try to hit a pinata? Hi-lar-i-ous.
-I went to another party. This happened.
-Damon completed an Olympic-distance triathlon. What a stud.
-I believe somewhere in there was Mother’s Day. I’m not sure though.
-I joined the board of our Atsugi Officer’s Spouse Association. Nothing really blog-worthy here, except that I have spent a good deal of time reviewing high school scholarship applications, among other things. And I thank the good Lord I am no longer in high school! Can I get an “Amen” to that!?
-I shattered my iPhone and had to venture off to the Tokyo Apple Store in Shibuya. I will write more on this experience later. For now I’ll just tell you this: The Shibuya train station has 16 exits. SIXTEEN. Do you think a certain blogger got lost in a freaking train station? Perhaps.
-Badman Week happened. I know you don’t know what that is. Remember when I wrote about how living on base during deployment is like being in a sorority again? Well, Badman week a week-long competition between the squadrons: Think softball, basketball, golf, and various other sporting events. Greek week but with Naval aviators instead of frat boys. And since men handle “friendly competition” and, ahem, losing, so well, it was a really pleasant time.
No but really. It was fun. And there were more parties. Like the Rock ‘N Roll themed one below.
And the spouse clubs got to compete in volleyball. I haven’t touched a volleyball in around 14 years. We lost. Sad face.
And another party. Excuse me – a Ball!
Okay, at this point I think we can admit I haven’t blogged because I’ve been fatigued, but hungover. Not my fault.
So there you go. My month of May in a nutshell. A blog-shell?* Stay tuned, I have much more to share with you. Thanks for your patience 🙂
*Clearly it is time for me to go to bed.Read More
