That’s what today has been. Sorry NCLM folks, I really want to continue doing it, but I’ve been kind of busy. I’ve barely found the energy to blog myself. I need to write everyday and that’s why I’m doing this. Rob got home late-late today and it’s already 9pm–but you wouldn’t know it by looking outside. It feels like 7 or something. I’ve been up since 5:30 this morning and Rob was already gone. It actually freaked me out a little bit! It’s getting bright at 5:30 these days. In a way, I’m glad I don’t have curtains in my room–I wouldn’t be getting up at a decent hour! I’d sleep till noon if I could!
God, I can’t wait to get back to the states! I can’t wait to go back to school and start working again! I didn’t want to take a job here knowing that I was going to be leaving in less than a year–it just didn’t make any sense? Know what I mean? I hate to make commitments that I can’t keep.
Tomorrow’s a busy day. I have to get my passport straightened out because Rob and I are taking a spa weekend in Budapest on Friday! In addition, I have the first FRG meeting since March, so a great deal of time is going to be spent dealing with that. The BN CDR is coming to the meeting and I’m extremely nervous. Hardly anyone shows up to these things. I just lost most of my regular attendees, so I really don’t have any idea what to expect. I’m going to order a couple of pizzas for the ladies, though, I’ve decided. I didn’t tell them it was a pot luck, but since it’s being held around dinner time and we always end up going over an hour (with socializing and such) that I hate for families to miss their dinner.
I love these new training holidays. The Soldiers no longer get off early on Thursdays, but the Army is giving the Soldiers a four-day weekend once a month for months that don’t have Federal Holidays. We decided that since we’re out of here in 10 months that we were going to be travelling on all of the 4 day weekends. During Christmas, we decided that we’re going to stay in Europe during block leave. We’re going to spend Christmas Eve in Rome and New Year’s in Athens, Greece! We couldn’t really decide where we wanted to go, but I really wanted to go back to Rome. I just fell in love with that city! It’s incredible. I think we’re going to try to go to Christmas eve mass–or at least that’s what I’d like to do. I know it’s going to be crowded, but I still would like to try–and I’m not even Catholic!
Then, the 4th of July weekend, we’re going to Austria. We can’t go too far because Rob has range density the day after the weekend.
We’re pretty much decided what we’re going to do for the rest of the year and the first part of next. We only have a short time. We won’t be able to go too far over the Thanksgiving holiday because it’s Army tradition that the officers serve the Soldier’s Thanksgiving meals. It’s a big deal. They get dressed up in their Army Blues (dress uniform equivalent to a Tux) and carve the turkey and serve it!
Well, that’s all for now! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
