I slept until 0800 this morning and felt a lot better when I woke up. I didn’t get breakfast again, but the 8 1/2 hours of sleep was nice. Then it was off to formation, and then I had my first rehearsal with the Mountain Echoes Brass Quintet – our primary (and right now only) brass quintet! It sure was nice playing in quintet again – definitely my favorite group to play in. Most of the songs were ones that I’ve played before, but there were a few that were sight reading for me. We’re getting ready for I think 4 gigs next week. After rehearsal, it was lunch time, and I spent my whole lunch time getting stuff together for when I headed to Battalion for my 1300 records update appointment. This was to make sure all my records and everything were correct for the upcoming Sergeant First Class board in February. I don’t actually go before the promotion board anymore – just my photo and records and evaluation reports. It’s only my first look at SFC, but we’ll see what happens. That took a good two hours and then it was back to chaos at the band hall. I walked in the building and it seemed like everyone had questions for me. The reason I’m in brass quintet and all the chaos? Part of the band is redeploying early to support missions at Ft. Drum. I’m not in that group, but since I’m supply and I work with movement (cargo type, not people type), everyone had questions for me, and was turning in stuff that they can’t take back with them and all kinds of stuff. That last hour of the day just FLEW by and it was actually about 1730 before I could even think about going to dinner. It finally calmed down and I headed to the chow hall for dinner and then home for a relaxing evening stitching. It’s only 2145 right now, but I’m heading to bed. I’m tired.
