Today was a nice productive day, beginning with Jason having to be at formation, at 07:30, and then putting on a training session. His topic, ethics....

Apparently, from what I observed, he did a very good job, even with the challenges of incompatible software (you just got'a love Micro$oft). Jason is one of those die-hard XP users, and his entire presentation was done on XP, primarily power point slides with animation. The files were sent over to the systems at Balboa, now running on Windows 7, and things didn't seem to work as they were supposed to. It was okay though, as he was very familiar with the material and like I said, I heard others talking about it and it was all positive.

After I dropped Jason off, I took the girls to their respective day cares and then I went back to the house. My original plan was to go for a bike ride, but that didn't happen. I grabbed a quick bowl of cereal and then a call from Jason letting me know he was done and heading over to his PT appointment. I headed back over to the base and we met up. I took the time to walk around and work with the folks about his supply orders. The correct orders went in (this was shown to me) but what I received was laughable. Fortunately I have enough stuff on hand, and can get other supplies from the hospital, so that we can continue to wait for the provider to get their collective heads on straight. We'll see how it goes. I am so glad that I have a good working relationship with the people at Balboa.

Jason and I headed back home and had a quick lunch and then he rested for a short while. After that he took a shower and then I headed back out to pick up the girls. Stacy was very talkative today and presented me with a "kite" that she had put together, and even demonstrated how it worked. I gave her a big hug and said, "thank you." Jackie was just happy to see us, as she always is, and then we went back home.

Tonight was a nice and easy night, with the big point being bath time, and then a story for bed time. The girls all got to go in and say good night to Daddy and then that was pretty much it for the day. Tomorrow I can sleep in until about 07:00 (I think), and then we're on to other things. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Sooner or later he's going to have to give up XP. They won't let it still work forever!
    You know I'm praying hard!
    Psalms 91:14-15 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
