And a week it’s been. We were off work on Monday for a comp day, but I still had to go to PT. Tuesday morning we had our quarterly unit weigh in. Wednesday morning was PT, Thursday morning was a gig, and then PT again this morning – but half hour earlier for me as I gave a PT test to a postpartum Soldier. So early mornings all week. And Tuesday began a week I don’t care to repeat again anytime soon. We had Soldier issues to take care of and I spent quite a bit of time at the copy machine on Tuesday. And then we were working on fall cleanups all week – picking up trash in our area, raking, picking up piles of leaves and branches and stuff. And I had to compile the results of the Command Climate Survey we did last week. If it weren’t for the gig on Thursday (with a short rehearsal Wednesday afternoon), I wouldn’t have done my actual job at all this week.
But today was a good day. After PT, I was on pass so I could go to Robert’s 1st Quarter award ceremony where he received an award for perfect attendance. And then after a little bit at home, Ryan and I headed to Tucson for his VA appointment – on the Harley!! It was a beautiful day for a ride, and my first ride to Tucson. I passed the time by texting with a couple of my friends, checking Facebook from my phone, and enjoying the scenery. I also took a few pictures with my phone. We stopped a couple of times along the way up there to stretch our legs and get circulation back to certain parts of the body that one sits on. I went to his appointment with his as his doc wanted to talk to me for a bit as well. Oh, before his appointment, we went to Waffle House for lunch. Yummy! The ride home was a little more uncomfortable. One of the roads we were on was horrible. But we made it home and traded the bike for the van and went and picked Robert up from Child Time and headed to his school for a PTO fundraiser. They had a kickball game with the staff/teachers versus the 6th graders. It was a lot of fun to watch. And then they had a spaghetti dinner after – LOTS of spaghetti, a little bit of salad, a bread stick, and a cookie for $4 a person. They had lots of bread sticks and cookies leftover, so they were selling them for $1 for a dozen bread sticks and 5 cookies for $1. We got some of each to take home.
After a stop at the grocery store for milk and potatoes (and grapes for the soccer game tomorrow), we headed home to relax for the rest of the evening. By the time Robert went to bed, I didn’t feel like stitching, but I had gotten some done earlier in the day while Ryan was in with his doc.
Today’s high: 86
