Wednesday. . .
Since I’ve been doing PT in the afternoons, I didn’t even try to get up until 0630 this morning. It doesn’t take me all that long to get my hair up and into uniform, so I was out at the bust stop by 0700 to catch the bus to the chow hall. The bus system here is awesom. You rarely have to wait more than 5 minutes or so to get a bus. The buses for the various routes are very well marked and there are route maps at every bus stop. It’s only 6/10 mile to the chow hall from where I live and I can walk it in about 10 minutes, but I’ve been taking the bus in the mornings when I have to get to class. Then to get to class requires a different bus than from my room to the chow hall.
Once I got to the classroom, I stocked the fridge with water, got the coffee started, and stitched for 15 minutes. During the morning, we continued working through the program and did a couple more PEs. I ate lunch with SSG D again and ended up sitting and chatting the whole time so I only got about 10 minutes of stitching in before class started up again. But that’s ok. The afternoon was more of the same – talking through some stuff and then some PEs.
After class, I headed home and changed into PTs to go run. I met up with SFC AC. We had a nice 3.54 mile run in 36:06 (10:12 pace). It was nice running with someone for a change, although I do enjoy running by myself most of the time. Then it was shower and change and back to the chow hall for dinner Then I went to MWR to get on the computer for a bit. Then back "home" and I went and stitched and chatted with the Marines for a while. I finished Seven Days of Creation!!!! I started it on 15 Nov 2006 while I was in Afghanistan, and 23 months later it is done! It took me 145.25 hours of stitching. I plan on getting it framed eventually. I’ll post a pic in a few days once I get everything caught up.
