It was cold and drizzly this morning and never really warmed up much. I got lunches packed and breakfast made and then we walked Robert to school. I had a bit of computer time before heading to work. After formation, we had to go out in the cold off-and-on drizzle and do a police call and pick up trash and stuff since some high-ups are coming to visit post tomorrow. That was not fun and it was cold. I hadn’t brought any gloves or cold-weather clothing. I figured I walk from the house to the van and from the van to work and then the band hall is super warm. But we got it done. During the picking up, I found a skull and carried it with me for the rest of the time and then brought it home at the end of the day. Oh, I should probably mention that it was styrofoam – probably a discarded Halloween decoration. It wasn’t a real skull, but I did have some fun with it while we were out walking around. After we all had warmed up a bit, we had concert band rehearsal for the rest of the morning. Then during lunch, I talked to First Sergeant about Admin stuff for a little while, and then I ate and played on the computer. After lunch I spent the whole afternoon doing Admin stuff and got quite a bit accomplished. Then I came home via a stop at the gas station. We went and got Robert from school and then I made spaghetti for dinner. It was really good. After we got cleaned up, we got Robert to bed and then I stitched for a while.
