Day 3: A Breath of Fresh Air

Well, after hearing Kent's voice again last night, and then again this morning, I feel a million times better. I now have more hope about being able to stay in contact with him.

Today, I also got a lot of things done, which makes me feel even better.  I connected Kent's printer to my laptop and loaded the software, etc., which took much longer than I expected, because my laptop is from the dark ages at this point, and the cd-rom drive wasn't working correctly. I actually had to end up tilting the laptop on it's side for the driver to read the software disc. Very frustrating.

Then, I called the vets in Kirksville, to find out which vet Kent had taken our cat to while we were up there. She's due for some more shots, so I needed to know which clinic had all of her information on file.

I also went to base and got some free over-the-counter medications from the pharmacy.  This program is so phenomenal! I got a bottle of 100 ct. Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Sudafed, and Robutussin, all free of charge, just because I have Tricare Prime. I feel like this service is so underrated because I can save so much money by getting up to 4 over-the-counter medications every 2 weeks! That's fantastic!

Then, I finally went and got my fingerprint cards for the paperwork I'm completing for my job on base.  I am now officially done with all of this nonsense paperwork. Now, I just have to call the NAF office and set up an appointment to go over my paperwork to make sure everything is complete correctly.

After that, it was off the Commissary to get a few groceries and other things I needed.

All in all, I'm very happy with the way this day went for me.
Kent's on his way to his next destination. (Not sure exactly where, but at least I know he's safe). And I'm finding ways to occupy my time. Now I'm off to watch some tv, make some Sponge Bob mac n' cheese, and curl up with Peaches to watch "What Happens in Vegas" (My Netflix movie for the week)

  1. Yes! That is key, keep yourself busy! My time at kamp was my best time during Alex's deployment because I was running around like crazy. P.S. I kinda liked the gym idea that other people suggested. Endorphines make you happy and happy people just don't kill people. The quote might not be exactly right, but name that movie anyway. Love you, friend!

  2. Love you cuz,
    I'll be thinking about you!! Love hearing that you are getting to the gym and keeping yourself busy! You are welcome to come visit whenever!! Hopefully I'll be home to hang out with ya. Call me if you just need to vent!
