Stop & Chat: April 17 & 18
Today I pinned Michael's new rank on. We took pictures, but that's not something I want to share here. I'd rather err on the side of caution with anything directly military related. It was a good experience for the both of us. This was the first time I was able to attend one of his promotion ceremonies. While there are lots of things that have to be done because this is a formality, me being there and completely messing up where I needed to walk or stand didn't matter. I didn't put his hat back on correctly... oops. LOL What was weird for me was when the soldiers of the company were told to give me a handshake as well when they came through to congratulate Michael. One of his superiors went on about how much I support him as a wife and at times do more for the military than he does. It made me uncomfortable because I don't feel it's true in the least. Right now I take care of the house (a little) and offer meager emotional support. I had a talk with Michael about it and he said that my roll would become more prominent as he progresses through his career. Right now, though, both he and I are happy with where each of our places are in this relationship. That's all you can ask for, right?
Michael had to go into Yongsan for an appointment today. I was supposed to go with him, but I conked out while he was getting ready and he left me to sleep. I've been feeling incredibly tired lately. I think it's due to my sleep schedule going out of whack. I've been staying up way too late and I don't have a set schedule for waking up in the morning. That needs to change!
The rest of my week is supposed to be really jam packed so I figured I would go ahead and post before I fall behind again. Expect more jam packed posts or at least a giant behemoth of a post at the end of the week!
