Well, I guess I’m becoming a little craft these days. I made Rob a scarf and now I’m making a blanket. This is the scarf that I made this weekend. I’m about 1/3 of the way done with a lapghan using the same colors. It’s all I have. I’m having fun doing it and it’s actually going pretty quickly. I can’t believe it! It’s 12:45 and though I’m a little sleepy, I’m not as sleepy as I was yesterday. I thought I’d try to get to bed at 10 or 11, but that didn’t happen. I have to go into work for a couple of hours tomorrow. I don’t mind going into work, but there really isn’t a whole lot I can do. Things are so quiet around here. With the base closure, there are so many things that normally would happen, but aren’t because there simply isn’t the people here to support the services. As it is, they are decreasing hours for almost everything that we use. The PX and Commissary are now closed on Mondays starting the first of February. That’s the main thing, but also our restaurants are also closing early and opening later. It’s a pretty sad state of things around here. I have tried to get people to hang out with me downtown, but no one’s interested in doing that. The bowling center is now closed on Sundays and Mondays and that’s something that I would do more of if I could.
I found out last week that the last day that the medical clinic will lock its doors on July 15. That really doesn’t make much of a difference to me since we’ll probably be in K-Town by then…but it just makes this base closure that much more real.
Speaking of moving, this will be the 8th time that Rob and I have moved in 3.5 years and I’m tired! This is actually fewer times than it was with my ex-husband. We moved every 5 months and my poor dad usually got stuck helping us. He’s even helped Rob and I when we lived in El Paso. He and Momma-Paula brought a U-Haul trailer full of my crap with them when they came to visit us. We got Mom’s old kitchen table and that was really neat! I really love the table. It doesn’t really fit well in this house because it’s round and most of the tables we see in apartments like this are the long rectangular tables. I think we actually need to get more furniture, but I think we’re gonna wait until we move again before we have anymore major purchases. I want to get a Lazy Boy chair and a love seat. I’m sure Rob won’t mind, but I guess it’s going to really hinge on the house/apartment that we end up with in K-Town. If it isn’t possible to get new furniture, then I guess we’ll get some stuff when we move back to the states in 2009. I’m really looking forward to moving back the US. Who knows where we’ll be stationed, but maybe Rob will get selected for a West Point assignment. If he does, then we’ll go to New York. It’s like an hour north of New York City. I’m psyched about that because I would L.O.V.E. to go to school at CUNY.
When I was in high school, it was my dream to go to NYU. I would have never been able to go there since it is a private university and the tuition is like $20,000 a semester and I never had good enough grades to get in anyway. I know that I can get into CUNY. A history prof of mine told me about it. I always thought there was just SUNY which is upstate, but then he told me about CUNY. When Rob told me that we might have the possibility of going to NY, I was so excited. He asked where I thought I would like to go back to school at. Boy, was that an easy question to answer. He was like, “Thought about it much?” LOL.
Anyway, it’s pretty late. I’ve rambled much too much. Have a great day and thanks for reading!
