Last night was pizza night with the wardroom ladies, these nights are always a fun time, and it is so much better than eating a sandwich at home alone. The boat was having a slumber party (aka closing the hatch, and pretending to be gone), and lucky for me it was a duty day for Drew anyway.
It is a very interesting dynamic of ladies. Everyone is in different places in their lives with kids, and priorities, but we all can get together and have a great time just hanging out--and this includes talking about subjects other than the boat, the schedule or the duty days.
Its very realistic to think that this adventure in the navy, and with boat could have been so different, but I made so many great friendships, and I hope to carry those friendships for a long time even after we leave the navy.
