January 7, 2014

Not much to talk about today, as it was a slow starter and there really wasn't a great deal of movement in any one direction. The girls slept in until after 07:00, and then I started cooking French Toast. I was actually a little surprised with the fact that Jackie didn't seem to like the French Toast, yet Stacy did. Usually if there is something that Stacy likes, Jackie is going to be right there. Oh well, tomorrow we'll simply have Cheerios and leave it at that. I know both of them do like their Cheerios.

We took the girls to their respective classes and then Jason had some things to take care of on the base. That took us a couple of hours, and it was mostly paper work that had to get done, with some updates. We were on our way back to the house, well before noon, and Jason said he would like to get some lunch and then take care of the dressing change. I fixed him his lunch and at the same time told him that we needed to get tot he store to stock up on a few things. By the time he was back in the bed, after the dressing change, I was ready to go for a short ride (not quite 8 miles). About a half hour after Joselyn got there we were off to go pick up the girls and then to Costco. The girls considered this a great fun activity, and I enjoyed it, too. Not too many people, and we found everything we needed.

Tonight I prepared some salmon and rice for dinner, and the girls really like the salmon. Tomorrow we have to be up early, so the girls were in bed a little earlier than usual, but not by much. Apparently there is a need to have all the Marines at formation tomorrow, at 07:30 so we have to get the girls to their classes right after I drop Jason off. My guess is that the early formation is a result of somebody doing something they shouldn't have, and so they are calling everybody in to talk about it. Actually, this is the first such formation in over two years, so it hasn't been too bad, and we'll find out exactly what, tomorrow. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
