Today was the last day of the early morning classes, and tomorrow Jason doesn't have to be there until about noon. What this really means?? Jason and I get to sleep in a little!

Today was another early start, and Jason was over at the class before 07:30, by about 10  minutes or so, and I picked him back up at 11:00, almost exactly. The funny thing is that I attempted to gain access to the base, that would have allowed me to have enough time to get to the class room, so that I could have picked up Jason just as he came out side. As it was though, the guard at the gate, the same gate I've been coming into all week, had a patrol office there that wasn't aware of the rules or something. He redirected me over to the main gate, and then I was allowed in. I wouldn't complain too much about this except that it looked to me as though he was doing it with everybody! Both of the vehicles in front of me were also over at the main gate, gaining access. When they use the Marines to man the shacks at the gates, there doesn't seem to be any problems. When they use these contractors there always seems to be something I have to do to get on base. I just wish they'd be consistent.

Anyway, we got back to the house and we had lunch. Shortly after lunch, Jason was asleep and he remained that way until almost 18:00 (6pm). Shortly after he woke he took a shower and I changed his dressings, and then we had a lite dinner. Neither of us was very hungry, and the vegetable-beef soup was actually pretty good. While Jason was sleeping I did some laundry, and there really wasn't much else to do tonight so it worked out pretty good. The only other thing I did today, while Jason was in class, was to go for a short bike ride. It was about 12 miles and I did it in under an hour, so I was feeling pretty good about it... especially since there weren't any mechanical issues.

Tomorrow is Friday, and at this point we don't have any plans for doing anything more than hang around the house. I took care of the Microsoft Office issue today, so now all I have to do is wait for them to send me the voucher that will allow me to get another key. Of course this is going to take over a month, so I still don't have the tools I paid for, but that's Micro$oft for you. Not to worry, I can still do just about everything else I want to do, and I have access to the web.

Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers, Take care and stay positive


  1. Glad you have the day "off" tomorrow! Have fun doing nothing!
    Am here praying!
    Psalms 27:1, 4-5 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?...One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
