My Final Gig at Ft. Huachuca

This morning I actually got to sleep in! Thomas nursed at midnight and then again at 3, and at that point I turned my alarm off and decided I'd get up and go run my 6 mile long run whenever he woke up. He slept until 8!!! So I nursed him and put him back in his crib to play (and eventually nap) and got ready to head out on my run. It was not a good run between still being sore from the obstacle course on Thursday, not having drunk any water yesterday, and it was 75 degrees out when I started. By mile 3 I knew I wasn't going all 6 miles. I made it 4.35 miles and walked the rest of the way home. I'm glad I'm smart enough to listen to my body. Believe me, I drank water today.

I spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon just being lazy. We have more organizing to do, but we were all just lazy today. Eventually I got into my uniform and we headed out to post for stage band formation. After we got our equipment loaded on the truck, we headed to the parade field where we would be playing for an Evening on the Green. The stage band was the first group up and it was my last gig with the 62d Army Band here at Ft. Huachuca. Despite the wind trying to blow our music away, the gig went really well! It was a lot of fun and we played a nice variety of music – some old standards, some newer, some Latin, some funk. It was a great gig for my last one.

After the gig, we got the stuff back to the band hall, and then we went to the commissary to get baby food and a few other things. I got in the store just in time before they closed. Then we headed to Ray's for dinner since it would be too late to cook when we got home. After we got home from eating, we finally got the watch the NASCAR race that we Tivo'ed.

Off to bed now. . .
