Clarification and Confession day.
I posted on this blog a couple days ago about all the quick decisions I have made. And I honestly have made Life changing, family changing decisions quicker than I should have. But I was not completely open about them. None of these decisions (even though quick) was done without my Sherry’s consent, I may make some strange decisions, but I am not stupid.
Sherry being the sweet lady she is, went along with ‘most’ of the changes in our lives. Even the Air force decision, when she was pregnant with our first child. She knew she would be leaving her mother, her best friend, and heading off to such an awful sounding place as Biloxi, Mississippi. Hundreds of miles from mama. We were in a small 2BR, roach and mosquito infested apartment and mama came down for the birthing. That was a lot of comfort to Sherry, but not for the Birth. We took Sherry to the Hospital and they sent us home saying they did not need us and it was against regulations for us to stick around, so we left Sherry alone with the Air Force Doctors.
I just wanted to clarify there was agreement, She is pretty gutsy, my girl. She was a stay at home mom and that is saying a lot on my salary, I was back to E-2 for another year. For you that do not know, that is the bottom of the totem pole. But we survived. Sherry really never liked Biloxi and went through a depression there. One that she kept secret, I honestly never knew. I never knew of her fear of Bridges (and we had a couple long draw bridges that stopped traffic on the bridge at times, she handled it).
But yeah, everyone has said I am lucky to have this lady, and I know it. She is a lot of fun tooooooooo! And I do understand what Paula said, “Sherry evened me out.” (and still is)
I just wanted to keep the record straight. The knots on my head are going down some now and I can see a little better. LOL
Thanks for coming by the Log,
