October 3, 2013

Today was an interesting day, in that I got up early enough, and went through my emails this morning, then fixed breakfast for the two of us. Jason was up and he was just a little hungry, so we had cereal. After that I cleaned up the dishes, or more accurately, but them in the dishwasher, it wasn't even half full so I didn't start it. Then I told Jason that I wanted to get over to the bank to take care of some business. Jason said he wanted to get over to the base, and Miramar and get a hair cut and wanted to come along with me, so we could get everything taken care of in one trip.

Jason wanted to get to the base (Balboa) to pick up some meds, since we're going to be gone all next week; he wanted to head over to Miramar to pick up the clothes he was having tailored (Dress Blues and Charlie uniforms); and, then he wanted to get a haircut because he found out that he needed to go to formation tomorrow - he is being recognized and awarded a good conduct medal. This will be his fourth in 12 years, and apparently this is something that usually doesn't happen.

So we first headed over to Balboa, and took care of picking up his prescription and I also picked up extra supplies to bring with us next week. After that we headed for Miramar. As it turned out, his Blues are still not ready, because they have to make one more alteration and then he can pick them up in two weeks. While we were at Miramar Anthony Netto showed up and we all decided to go to lunch together, and he knew the perfect place, as it was on the way back. We finished lunch at almost 14:00 (2pm) so we hurried back to the house, because Joselyn was going to be waiting for us. She gets here at 14:00 Monday through Friday, and sometimes we're late. Fortunately she has gotten used to us and just waits. As soon as we did arrive we asked her to hop in the van and we headed over to The Depot, to get Jason's hair cut.

We went back to the house and Jason took his shower and I took care of his dressings, and then he laid down for the rest of the day. I took a short nap in the front room and that was about the rest of the day. Joselyn leaves at 18:00 (6pm) and that's about the time I fixed Jason a lite dinner. Our lunch was pretty big and neither of us were hungry. Tomorrow we have to get started early, so that he can make formation, and then.... I think I'll again try to get to the bank. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
