I sent the book to my daughter

She loved it just as much as I did.
She said she read it in 24 hours.
I am glad she was able to relax and read.


I am torn today.
My real job is going through a lot right now and I am not there.
I feel that huge big lump in the back of my throat.
You know the one.

I just ordered ubsy a bunch of stuff from Amazon for his birthday. I love that little boy. He needs a bunch of Batman stuff. He needs a place to park his Bat car and a Cave to hide out in.

Very sweet. My daughter sent me the prom pic I have been waiting since May 3rd for (it was stuck in a phone and no one could retrieve it until now). And now, was the perfect time.

Don't forget the .... Marine Corps Birthday on 10 Nov.

Admittedly the posts have been on the light side and a tad bit sporadic.
Some days I have a lot to say and others I have nothing to say.
I spend a lot of my time keeping busy, because that is one thing I do well. I did indulge in 7 hours of dvd watching on Halloween. I picked up all six seasons of the L-Word. It is really good. I think it is a combination of Sex and the City, Onetree Hill and Big Love. Just hard to explain, but when you have hours to fill mindless entertainment is just the ticket.

I finished my International Politics class and my International Management Class starts today.

The best news is that CHels passed her pt test. I am proud of her. She just has a few more hurdles to go over.

We are stuck in the 80's music on shift. Listening to the The Smiths, The Cure.. It is kinda funny sometimes. Our shift is age divided. 1/2 of us are late 30's and the other are early 20's...

enjoy everything fall..

1 Nov

The time has gone by so quickly.
1 Nov.
Halloween went by without much celebration.
But, the relaxation was nice.
I have been bus finishing up my class and my next one starts tomorrow.
I am doing more yoga than I have ever done, it is relaxing and helps pass the time.
