Today is my wife’s birthday; she got two DVDs and a CD and turned 31 — she still can’t believe it. She met me in her early 20s; she’s now been married to me for 1/5 (20%) of her life. The downside of any of her birthdays that ends in “1″ is that the next[...]
Yesterday, Rebecca received her final RSV shot. She took it like a big girl, only crying for a minute or so. By the time we got home, she was laughing and playful. During the visit to the clinic in Temple, we also saw her new weight: 13 lbs., 0 oz. (5.88 kg). She’s trying very[...]
Rebecca’s initial due date was estimated to be Nov. 26, though it was later upgraded to Nov. 23. Basically, we expected her to be born this week , instead of being six weeks old already. I know it doesn’t accomplish anything to play the “What If?” game, but purely as an intellectual exercise, here we[...]
I dropped my wife off at the Killeen airport Thursday morning. Yes, Killeen has an airport. It’s the first time either of us has lived less than 15 minutes from an airport.

Since some of her co-workers have complicated days-off schedules for the holidays, my wife gets all the odd[...]

As I[...]

Last evening, my wife and I took a couple of snapshots of each other. If I’m not mistaken, these are our first pictures of each other since moving to Killeen.
My wife’s first day at her new job was hectic, as expected. She had to get fingerprinted, pick up a temporary gate pass, obtain ID badges, etc., which involved walking/driving to several locations on base. She was a little overwhelmed, but not too much. She’s not the kind of person who gets overwhelmed easily, and[...]
Don’t feel bad if you didn’t read the entirety of my last post. It was so long that I barely got through it myself. The short version is: We got to Killeen, we unloaded the truck and returned it, returned to Seminole for my car, unpacked for days, bought some new stuff, ate food, slept,[...]
