January 9, 2014

Today started at a different pace, as we didn't have to get up for anything in particular. When I went down to see how Jason was doing, and to get him breakfast, he told me that he did need to get over to Balboa, but it could wait to a little later. After all, it was only 07:30 and besides I wanted to get a nice ride in. I went for a nice 15 mile ride, and I'm feeling better about the rides all the time, so I guess it is just a matter of time before I build up my stamina again.

Anyway, after the ride I cooled down a bit and cleaned up, then Jason and I went to take care of the business at Balboa. As it turned out, there really wasn't much that he needed to get done, but because he was contacted he wanted to get it taken care of. He is very dedicated to being a Marine and he has a strong reputation for doing whatever is asked of him. When we were done, I needed to get over to the VA office and take care of some paper work of my own, and fortunately the office is close to Balboa. Once done there we went to the pet store and picked up some food for Gracie, then headed back to the house.

The rest of the evening was spent at home resting, and me doing a little organizing work on the garage. We decided to check out a new hamburger place that just opened up, The Habit, and we were pleased with what we found. The prices aren't too bad, and the food is good. About the only down side is that I didn't notice much for the kids, so we won't be heading back there when we have the girls. That's pretty much it for the day. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Assuming Gracie's doing okay now?
    Praying right now!
    2 Samuel 22:29-33 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.
