What's Good?

Obviously, with it being Good Friday, it would be a little trite of me to write a post complaining about the trivial misgivings of my life in Enid.  Truthfully, with change in the wind I've been feeling a little sad and even scared to be leaving, because the good here far outweighs the bad. Here are some good things I'll miss about Enid/Vance:

FRIENDS! We've both been beyond fortunate in the friends that we've found here.  Whether its a good laugh, joking about Eniods, or an in depth discussion about Harry Potter, they've really what has made our experience in Enid a good one.

Barbeque- oh, sorry, did you think this was going all be thoughtful and meditative things? Because even if you did, you're in luck- we've started taking our BBQ very seriously! I'm definitely an amateur connoisseur, but boy to I like learning!

Our Church- We've been attending St. Gregory's Catholic Church, and though I can't say we've been especially involved, its such a sweet little community that I think has a really good focus and grasp on what it means to be a good, loving, and tolerant Christian person.

Pilot Training, At the beginning of pilot training there's a bunch of hoohah to students and wives about this being the most difficult year of their lives, and how you'll basically only see you husband for a few hours on Saturday if he isn't flying.  For us at least, this has been total baloney! While it hasn't been all easy, and has at times been very stressful, I can't say that it has been overly trying.  Lance deserves all the credit for this, he's great at getting what needs to be done completed in the flight room, and carves out room to hang out with me every day, and we usually have plenty of time for fun on the weekends. 

There's a bunch of other little things that have been giving me little pangs of sadness when I realize we'll be leaving, like the nice guy at the deli counter at the commissary, the cool movie theater in Kingfisher, the hot dog store, and the man on Broadway that walks his 5 pugs everyday at 4.  I'm starting to get really excited though, to get to discover the new quirks and gems in a few new places this year and next!
