So today I start my job back at Kay Jewelers. It should be interesting since I left my job at Hoya Vision Care nearly a year ago, and it has probably been more like a year and a half since I've worked at the jewelry store. It is bittersweet for I love not having to work (I mean really, who LOVES to work, right?), but I look forward to working with the manager and my friend April. We have quite a good time together!
Today Jesse signed into Brigade. The good news is that he will not be leaving for Afghanistan for another 30 or so days! We did hear through all of the "joe dot com" rumors that there was a possibility that he would have to leave on the 22nd of this month, but we did not want to alert anyone until we knew something 100%. But it WILL be approximately 30 days from today. Before Jesse leaves they have to qualify on their weapons and do some land navigation (often called land nav). That is all we know for now, but this truly is a positive thing because it shaves another 30 days off his deployment.
Earlier today I took Stryker to the dog park, where he got to play with my parents dogs Daisy and Wynne, and a neighborhood dog, Zach. They got worn out SUPER fast! I wanted to share a picture of Stryker with you (from the new camera!).
