The Brass Quintet (E Team) did our diagnostic PT test this morning. I did 41 pushups (89%), 70 situps (87%), and ran my 2 miles in 20:06 (63%). My total score was 239. My run was SLOW, but at least it was passing. I was happy with how I did considering the lack of PT I’ve done AND being sick for the last week. Our record test is on 20 April, and I’ll be fine for that. After morning formation, the 2 guys from the School of Music that were here yesterday to do a “Lessons Learned” brief (stuff we learned (both positives and negatives) while we were deployed) came back to summarize everything. After they were done, I did some stuff in Ops and then stitched over my lunch hour. After lunch we had drill band (marching band) at one of the gyms on post – to get ready for our ceremony on Friday. All the fields are still either under snow or under water or MUD, so we went indoors. It was small in there, but we managed to get the basic stuff done that we needed to do. Once we were done with that, I headed into Watertown and finally got my t-shirt I won from Froggy 97 the end of last month. Then I stopped at the grocery store on my way home, and once home I got a good quiet shower. Ryan and Robbie got home soon after I was done and we played until suppertime – mac & cheese and pigs in a blanket. We all had orange juice (Robbie’s favorite juice right now) to drink. Then we played some more and then Robbie wanted to take a bath so we did that. He’s in bed now and I’m heading off to do some crocheting.
Before I leave, though, I’ll share my recent cross stitch finishes. . .
