Lots going on here. Nothing really newsworthy. Mostly mundane. But that's the way I like it.
I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around the concept of Thanksgiving only being a few short weeks away. Probably because I'm still in shorts and flip flops. Rather than spend gobs of money on food that will eventually become leftovers, I think we are going to be heading over to the DFAC (dining facility) on post. I've heard the food is outstanding (B...there's that word again!) and the company will be great.
We'll be cooking plenty for Christmas Eve and Christmas so I feel no need to go all out for Thanksgiving.
Work (subbing) is good. I'm working sporadically which is fine with me. Like I said, I'm kind of stingy with my free time so I'm not feeling a burning desire to work every day that I can. Once we get past the holidays, I'll start aiming toward the higher end of my goal (10 days/month).
MacGyver's shoulder is still there. He starts physical therapy soon which will be good. He went back to work this past week and it's nice to get back into something that resembles "normal" around here. No idea when he'll start flying again - my thought is that won't happen until sometime next spring at best.
We've had some interesting possibilities land in our laps this past week. If anyone has any information on life in the Guard or Reno, Nevada...drop me a line (homefrontsix @ yahoo.com...no spaces). It's nothing solid at this point - just possibilities and something for my obviously underworked brain to churn over.
The rugrats are good. Staying busy with the usual things that rugrats stay busy with. Growing like weeds. I need to find the Halloween pictures and get those up.
So we're still here. Not much to report. Sorry about that!
