Quite the interesting day for Jason and I. We started out relatively early, and went over to the soccer game over at MCRD. Stacy was very happy to see Daddy and was up in his arms for quite some time. She gave me a big hug and kiss and started to tell me all about her soccer game. She also told me that Jackie wasn't there today, as she stayed back with her "other" grandfather. As it turned out Stacy didn't come back to the house with us, because Jason didn't want to bring one and leave the other behind. Stacy did do a great job of playing soccer, and really seems to be getting into the game.

Jason and I then took off and did a couple of other errands, including purchasing a a new bed for Gracie. We went to Ross, as we were told that was the best place to get pet beds, and sure enough they had one for Gracie. Actually, it was kind of cute the way that Gracie sort of picked out her own bed. Jason picked out a couple of them that he liked; I laid them down on the floor for Gracie to examine; and, she went right to the one that I thought was best and started to roll around on it. That was the one we bought.

We also had gone for breakfast this morning, and went to Mimi's restaurant. They were moderately busy, and Gracie generated a number of comments by the other patrons. We sat down next to this nice couple who ran a non-profit organization and they thought Gracie was great. When they got up to leave they asked if Jason needed help finding employment, because that is what their non-profit did, help get veterans placed, and Jason thanked them, and let them know he was still active duty. I did take one of their business cards and then they left. When it came time for us to pay our bill we found out they had already paid it for us and we simply got up and left.

We went home and I did some cleaning and then helped Jason with a shower and dressing changed. He then got in bed and relaxed and then I did the same thing. Jason had said earlier that he wanted to go to the movies, and see Iron Man 3, so early evening we went over to the theater and bought tickets. We had to buy tickets to a later showing than originally planned (the 16:55 (4:55pm) showing was sold out) so we had some extra time. We went over to Chipotle and Jason ordered a burrito and I got a chicken bowl (effectively a burrito without the tortilla). As we were sitting there a nice lady came over and handed Jason a gift card for Chipotle, said, "Thank you," and then walked away. Maybe it was a good thing we had lunch at home...;-)

The movie was entertaining, and we had a good time. They allowed Jason and I (with Gracie) into the theater first, about 2 minutes ahead of everybody else. That gave us all the time we needed to get settled, and it was appreciated. I hope tomorrow is at least as good as today was. Thank you, for all the continued prayers and support, take care and stay positive.


  1. Went to see Iron Man 3 today, too! Loved it!
    Praying right now!
    Romans 8:35, 37-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?...Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
