As some of you know my DH George is a Army recruiting station comander. Which is about the evilest job in the army. Sure the people like soldiers, but not the "evil" recruiters who just do their job. They are barely recognized as soldiers. Anways now I am done rambling. We live out in the civilian world. Every year all recruiters, soldiers of a recruiting battalion meet to a annual training conference(ATC) which contains of all day training for the soldiers on friday and a party at night, saturday is trining again(seperate spousal training for family members) and on saturday night we have a big formal. Which i am partial of right now. It is 35$ a plate , which is not too bad, but i have to but a darn evening gown. Me, the one who wears jeans, birkies and a old shirt in a gown and my hair done too??? Oh my. The last two ATC's we went to had luau's and were in Florida. I dont like stinkin dressing up and shake hands with the big brass up there. And what i even hate more i driving with three kids from Youngstown Ohio to Columbus in mid december. But i love that they have free day care for the ball the spouse training . Guess i am looking on ebay for a size 10 dress. I will post a pic once i wear the darn dress.
