The army consistently says one thing and does another, especially when they tell you your husband will be home at a certain time. So, I wasn't all that surprised when I arrived to pick up my husband from over two weeks in the field - only to find that he was being held for longer than expected. So, I drove around base.
And I stumbled across an impressive flower-bed/ pretty thing. I don't really know what to call it, but it's cool.
I'm coming to the conclusion that Germany makes up for not being the United States by taking a lot more time to make the base prettier with flowers and landscaping. You know, everywhere except where I live - in the ghetto housing.
Still not bitter about that.
