First social event
Sat, 04-12-2003 - 12:46pm
Good morning all,

It's pouring and my oldest daughter's softball game was cancelled. I'm going to my first military family event this afternoon. Some sort of tea with a hat contest. Not really my "thing", but I figure I better make some new friends and I'm bringing the cookies. My dh was reservist for 24 years and activited for the first time ever in January. I've never been part of the military life because we've always lived too far and reservists general don't have much in the way of social interactions for families and spouses (at least in my area).

I'm nervous, which is very odd for me. In my job I give presentations and workshops to crowds as big as 500 (and sometimes 1000)! But I'm nervous about meeting other military wives who are in the same boat as me. Go figure. Maybe I should have another cup of tea.

Enjoy the weekend in your respective corners of the world.

Good luck and have fun. My dh is also a resevist -- he was in for 12 years and was activated last year. We never heard from anyone -- so I am glad the Family Group has some social things for you to go to. Dana
