It was back to work today. My day didn’t start off very good. I got to the band hall for 0700 PT formation about 20 minutes early (I guess I can sleep and leave 10 minutes later!) and no one was at the band hall. Hmmm. . . . Odd, but I was early. So I waited a bit and no one was showing up so I finally started calling to see where formation *actually* was. 4th try got ahold of someone who knew where formation was (at Battalion) and told me he’d let "them" know where I was. So I did head up to Battalion and got there just as they were finishing. I got harassed some, but whatever. So then I went back home and got changed into my duty uniform, got breakfast for me and Robbie, and saw my guys off to school. I also got a few things out to the mail box just before the mail lady came and played on my computer for a bit before heading back for 0930 formation. At the band hall this time. 🙂 Of course, I was most of the way there and I remembered that I had forgotten my mouthpiece, music, flip folder, etc. Not a good way to start off the day, but it turned out there wasn’t any rehearsals today so it was ok. After formation, I went to make my Household Goods appointment (to schedule our house to be packed and loaded), I stopped by Battalion to check the mail room for my welcome packet from Ft. Huachuca (not there – hmmm. . . . I wonder where it is), and then I headed to the dental clinic to see when I could go for an exam so I can get my annual cleaning. I was able to get my exam right then, and they did x-rays as well. I looked at the one they did of my front teeth (I told them about my softball incident) and the bone looks a lot better than it did last x-ray I had. Then I had the exam and he said everything looked really good. I just have one tiny cavity. So I went to the front desk to schedule my cleaning appointment, and it turns out they had a cancellation for tomorrow so I’ll be able to get in right away. That was kind of nice – get it over with for another year.
Then I headed back to the band hall since it was lunchtime and I had packed my lunch. I ate and then I stitched for the rest of the time. After lunch, all the Staff Sergeants and Sergeants First Class had a meeting with First Sergeant to talk about some leadership stuff. And then I went to the admin building and did up my leave form for when we move this summer – I’m getting everything done well ahead of time, at least as much as I can before I actually start clearing the end of June. By the time I was done, it was pretty much the end of the day, and I couldn’t find anyone from Brass Quintet around, so I left. I came home and got changed out of uniform and got meatloaf going for supper. I put it in the oven shortly after the guys got home from school. Dinner was good – meatloaf, mashed taters, and corn. Robbie had his usual second helpings of meatloaf. 🙂 And then he went to bed a little earlier than usual – he had been fussy since the minute he got home from school, so maybe a little extra sleep will help.
After he was in bed, I read a couple of newspapers and then I stitched and we watched our shows from Thursday night – thanks Tivo!
