Yesterday was our Solider Readiness Check day. We had to be at the soldier service center at 0830 for a briefing and some inprocesing and then was the long wait for the medical part. I waited in line until almost 1300, and finally got into medical. They read my TB test from Tuesday, took some blood for a mandatory HIV test, checked vision and hearing, talked to a behavioral health guy and a health care provider. All of that was quick – I was done about 1345 and was able to head home for the day. Once home, I got some stuff done around the house and computered and made supper. We had tacos.
This morning it was snowing more, and continued pretty much all day, but off and on. We have maybe 2 or 3 inches now. It was a do nothing and boring day at work, but we did get to finally make music. We had a rehearsal for tomorrow’s welcome home ceremony and that went surprisingly well! Once we were done with that, we were done for the day. I came home for a while and was just about to get into the shower when Ryan called and Robbie’s daycare teacher had called him. Our poor little guy isn’t feeling well, and he was having a hard time breathing and eating and was couging and couldn’t sleep. So I headed out to get him, and on the way there I managed to get him a doctor’s appointment for just a little bit later. After I picked him up, we headed out to post to the doctor’s and didn’t have to wait hardly at all there. Robbie was a very good boy and it was deemed that he has a small sinus infection. So we waited in line at the pharmacy for his antibiotics for that and then came home and played until Ryan came home from work. Ryan snowblowed our sidewalks when he got home, and then we had the chicken and potatoes that I had done in the crockpot for supper. It was really good. I baked some chocolate chip cookies (from pre-made dough that Ryan had bought from someone at work that was selling it for a fundraiser). I should have taken a picture of Robbie after he had eaten one. LOTS of chocolate! After he was in bed, I stitched for a while.
I’m off to bed now, too. I wonder how much snow we’ll have in the morning.
