It’s been miserable the past few days. It’s been in the 80’s and very humid, and most of the buildings around here don’t have air conditioning. Of course, Walmart and other stores and restuarants have it, but not where we live or work.
It’s been a pretty boring week so far. Monday we drove and found a flea market about an hour away. It was ok – not nearly as big as the one we went to in Augusta, but it was still nice to get away. We took a back road back and had a nice little drive.
Yesterday was back to work after the 4-day weekend. I had my annual eye exam in the morning – I’ll be getting new glasses with just a tiny bit stronger prescription. Not much of a change. The rest of the day was pretty much just sitting around not doing much except trying to stay cool in the admin building. In the evening after we picked Robbie up from day care, we went and walked around Walmart for a while and bought another fan for our room (it came with 2, but now we have one in the window as well) and then we went to Burger King for supper.
Today we mowed the grass around the 6 band buildings – it sure looks a lot nicer now, but of course we have rain in the forecast for the rest of the week so it’s going to come right back. We had a unit lunch at a local restaurant – presented an award to one soldier that’s leaving. It was a good time, and the food was good too. After we got back, we sat around for a while and then 3 of us went over to the rehearsal hall and cut some locks off lockers that people were supposed to have emptied before they left for Afghanistan. That was it for the day. I went home and took a nice cool shower before we went to pick up Robbie and then we went to a Chinese buffet for dinner and then to the grocery store on the way home. We played outside on the little playground here for probably half hour or so before coming up for bed.
