August 15, 2014

This morning started with me going to the gym at about 06:30, do get a little cardio workout going. The reason for the early start was that I knew I wasn't going to be able to get a ride in, this morning, so the gym was the next best thing. Actually, I could have gone for a ride a little later in the day, but due to the fact that it was over 90 again, I didn't want to get out and bake myself on the bike. Heck, even when walking over to the gym, as early as it was, it was very warm already. Anyway, it was a good work out/run-walk, and when I got back to the house I found that Linda wasn't feeling very good. I told her to stay in bed and I'd take care of things down stairs.

Jason and I did leave the house as about 09:00, and headed over to physical therapy. This was the only appointment that he had, and then while that was going on I went over to pick up his prescription. The nice thing about being here, as long as we have, is that the folks there know both of us so we actually get very fast service. The fact that they weren't too busy helped too, I think.

We headed back home, then Jason said he wanted to go over to the Marine Corp Recruit Depot (MCRD), so he could go to the uniform store to pick up a couple things. He wants to make some changes to Gracie's vest, and it is the closest source of what he needs. We got to their shopping area and walked over to the store entrance. The uniform store is upstairs so we head to the elevator and there is a sign on it - "Out of Service." There is only the one elevator so that means no getting to the store. As you might imagine, this irritates Jason a bit, but not really a bunch he can do, so we leave. He decides he will just have to wait to make the changes.

The rest of the day was laid back and relaxed. It seems I've caught a cold, but it isn't too bad right now. Both of the girls have the sniffles so I am guessing it came from Jackie, who picked it up at the day care. One of those things in life that just seem to follow you around. Tomorrow we will be heading out to the training class for Jason and Gracie, and then seeing whatever else the day might bring. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Continuing to lift up prayer!
    1 John 1:1-4 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
