Being military has its ups and downs and we've been able to made the best of both so far. One of the downs is being apart at times. David went TDY (temporary duty) this morning. This means he flew to Ohio to take another military law class. This a great thing for his career because he can continue to learn and gain more legal knowledge in areas he hasn't gotten to focus on. I believe this week's class is on family law. Each JAG is able to specify which classes s/he would like to go to throughout the year. Then depending on space in the class and the timing with cases and other office things they are sent to the class if possible. I think that a TDY can be any temporary duty including deployment, just as a FYI.
For some reason I am really emotional today. I really hate being away from David. Who doesn't right!? But, after I dropped him off at the airport I went to church. I was really looking forward to church because we have loved the worship we've had there so far. It was a rough time though today. I was sitting alone of course and then the preacher does this "talk amongst the people you're sitting by" thing. Um, yeah no one talked to me. I know that sounds like a pity party thing but I'm new and know no one! I know there were others who didn't get talked to as well and I just don't get that!! It's church, the body... why would we leave anyone out? I can't say I am innocent and have never done this but when you become the new person you realize all the things that you need to be sensitive to in the future. The people sitting right by me had the closed off body language and turned themselves the opposite direction from where I was sitting. This just really hurt. Besides that whole thing, at least I was challenged by the sermon.
Wrigley and I are just trying to get through this hot day in the upper 90's with no A.C.!
Here's a beautiful snapshot I'll leave with you, a picture from our window as the sun set on Friday night. Thanks Lord! The mountain on the left is Pike's Peak.
