Veteran’s Day

I thought that today would be different than it actually turned out. No big deal really. My Army Boy had to go to Walmart to finish filling out the paperwork for the job. I am sure that he is doing computer learning too. Hopefully he will have a schedule to start work. He is working overnights and that will be kinda of an adjustment for us considering that we are back on a normal schedule.

The casserole that I made last night was kinda spicy and I had some of the leftovers today with some Ranch dressing on it. It was a lot better that way. I had to take a pain pill for my hips today and now I am drowsy and honestly groggy. I am thinking I need a nap and soon.

I think I am going to go now.



Good News Finally

So today Army Boy went to the office several times and finally caught the guy that is supposed to fix our sink and he came over and it is now fixed! There was a popsicle stick in the P-trap that had gotten horizontal and bent so it was basically holding all the food that we were sending down the garbage disposal. He cleaned it out and now everything is fine. I am happy again. No wonder the Draino did not work!

We also found out that our complex changed hands and things here are crazy because there is not enough people to fix all the stuff that needs to be fixed. Which makes sense. They are beginning to re roof all the buildings here now as well. Not sure if they will finish before winter and snow, but it is a good goal. Most of the people who worked here before are now gone so we have to get used to new people.

I have had a migraine all day long, so I have not been doing much. We ran a load of dishes through the dish washer today. Just to make sure they were totally clean and on the hottest setting. It is supposed to be very chilly tonight so it will be nice to have the windows closed and the heat on for once. They guy who fixed the sink is very nice and he is one of the few who got to stay from the other owners, so it was nice to deal with someone who I knew somewhat.

Well, I need to go eat and try to get rid of this migraine.



Today Army Boy had to get up very early to go to orientation for a job. Our sink has still not been fixed yet and I am getting more and more frustrated with this. Because both sides are clogged, we can not do dishes, run the dishwasher, or anything else. Not to mention it smells horrible. We have been trying to not cook and that is very difficult because of the money situation here.

It has been chilly the last few nights and we have had to sleep with a window open because of the smell in the kitchen. Supposedly the work order has been picked up and the office told Army Boy that it would be done yesterday or today. If not I am letting him call the after hours number and complain. We tried Draino yesterday and it did not work at all. But I can smell the chemicals. It is making me sick.

Obviously, it was not fixed yesterday. I am hoping for today but not really holding my breath. I am hoping that Army Boy will start work tomorrow, but not sure until he gets home. It is an overnight position so we will have to go back to our usual sleep/wake pattern. Well, I am going to run.



This year marks my first Thanksgiving with my Army Boy. Last year at this time I was still living in Michigan. What a difference a year can make!! I am in the process of listing out what will be for dinner on Thanksgiving. So, I can begin to add the things we need to grocery lists leading up to Thanksgiving and I don’t have to do one big shop at the last minute.

Since it will be just the two of us, nothing really fancy or formal. It has been cool here lately and I am enjoying the wonderful weather. Today the sliding door is open and I can hear the ducks in the lake outside. They sound rather happy today. I will have to see if I have any old bread to maybe go out later and feed some of them.

Things are improving here day by day. I am still having some health issues but I am learning to deal with them day by day. I still feel frustrated by my inability to do certain things, but I am learning to choose my battles better.

Well, I am going to run.
