Yesterday we spent all day painting. We brought the dog with us to keep a good eye on him. I can give him benadryl so I did that so he could get some much needed rest. He was doing pretty well until the very end - leaning against a wall of fresh paint. Twice. Good job, Stryker. I'm posting photos at the bottom here with painting photos.
Last night I went out with some friends for some drinks. Lets just say that I had a little too much to drink. Normally I am VERY good, I've only drank to the point of sickness twice in my entire life. And the last time I got sick was at Jesse's house when he lived in Lakewood. We're talking 2004. Yep.
Jesse should be at his somewhat permanent FOB by the end of the week. I should have an address to give at this time. It looks as though he will be a platoon leader (PL) of an armor platoon. They don't believe that this will hurt his career in any shape or form. The FOB he goes to will also have a lot of amenities that the current FOB he is at doesn't have. I know he's excited for that.
Thanksgiving for him was good, I hear they had lots of beef, ham, and turkey. All of it was cut off of the bone. They had all the fixin's, including lots of pies and cakes. It sounds like he ate his heart out!
As for me, I'm going to working, painting, and trying to get things in line for the house. Hopefully everything goes smoothly for me this week. I'm making a long list of things to do. We need quite a few new things, we did toss some stuff after this move. I plan on focusing on these things come the new year.
I also have some new photos from Jesse which are also posted.
