January 8, 2014

Early start to today's activities; Jason had a 07:30 formation. Unusual for mid-week, but still something we have gotten used to dealing with. The girls got up this morning with only minor protest. Actually Jackie was up and raring to go while Stacy pleaded to get more sleep. Because of that I got Jackie up first and then went to work on getting Stacy to move. Still, we managed to get down stair with clothes on, hair brushed, and time for breakfast. I finished getting my shoes on while they ate, and then helped Jason to get Gracie ready. Actually, we were at the base with plenty of time; Jason was dropped off and then Jackie was taken to her day care preschool. The next stop was getting Stacy over to her preschool, and that just about gets me back to the house.

I went to the house and since Jason was going to be doing his Marine thing I went for a bike ride. It was a modified version of my ride along the harbor, and I would have liked to modify it more, but I was worried I wouldn't be back soon enough. After my shower and heading back over to the C5 clinic at Balboa Hospital I found that Jason was still in his last appointment. I guess I would have had time to go that extra part of the ride. Oh well, maybe I can do it tomorrow. Jason doesn't have any appointments tomorrow, but we do have some chores to get done, so I will need to get out early for the ride. I've also began doing another exercise that is supposed to be beneficial, as it sort of does a bunch of isometric type exercises, and you have to do it all at the same time. Right now I can go for about a minute, with a goal of getting up to two or more. You just have to do it every day, though you can make some modifications so that it doesn't get too boring.

The rest of the day was spent at the house. I did a few chores around here and Jason rested. I fixed a nice dinner of chicken with baked potato and mixed vegetables. The chicken came out much more moist than I thought it would, so I was very happy. I went to talk with Jason, while he was eating and he let me know that he had found a few more properties that he wants to look at, so we just might be doing that in the near future (my guess would be Wed. or Thur next week). Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. If you'd done the other part of the ride Jason would have been done earlier...that's the way it goes!
    Keep your eyes on the Lord! Lifting up prayers!
    2 Samuel 22:2-3, 7 And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. (7) In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.
