no computer or TV this weekend.

Well, folks, it has been a tiring week for me. Work hasn't changed much but I had to switch to the 6am PT session since I will soon have early morning commitments. Up until Wednesday morning, I was going to the 7:30am sessions. Not anymore. I now have to get up at 4:50am and haven't been able to get to bed prior to 11pm since last Thursday. I really don't do well on fewer than eight hours a night. Anyhow, you won't see me online this weekend. I'm going to do my best to stay off the computer and not watch TV either. I figure a four day weekend (gotta love military Family Days) is as good a time as any to catch up on all the chores and errands that I need to take care of.

My yard sale last weekend was pretty successful but I need to get what didn't sell out of my house ASAP or it will never leave. I'll be making a trip to the Arts & Crafts building on base to donate my yarn, a local clinic to donate the glucose meters (didn't attempt to sell those but they are sitting in my kitchen taking up space), and a trip or two to the Goodwill to get rid of all the non-furniture items that were left over.

You all have a good weekend and I'll "see" you next week.

I'd exchange all of it for a $250 gift card for Rite Aid, Safeway, SuperFresh, Target, Walgreens, or a combination of any/all of those stores. The products actually total $664.50 and shipping will be about $30. That's a 64% savings. I'll even throw in two (worn twice each) bras in size 38D, if they're your size.
I'm just tired of having it sit around and take up space. If no takers by the 15 May, I'll list it on ebay. Maybe that will facilitate getting rid of it. :)
Items in green have been spoken for. All others are still up for grabs.

Wake up call

Yesterday I had a meeting with my Commander in regards to my most recent PT test failure. It's my third in fewer than two years and, even though I'm progressing, it still isn't good. I HAVE to pass my next test which is at the end of June. If I don't pass, they have to submit for retention. If retention is accepted, he has to take punitive steps at his level. Basically, if the Wing Commander doesn't take negative repurcussions, he has to otherwise there is no reason to fear a fourth failure (for anyone). Folks could just keep failing without worrying about anything and without any incentive to pass. My Commander is an awesome guy so I know most of what he's doing/saying is because he has to show that he's serious otherwise he'll be walked all over and not taken seriously. He told me "I don't want you to be the first." I believe him. I know he, and the rest of supervision, value me and what I bring to the organization so I'm going to do what I can and I will pass the test in June. If I don't, I lose a stripe (if the Wing CC approves retention). If I lose a stripe, I will be at high year tenure for that rank which means I can no longer serve. I WILL PASS. Please pray for me that I have the strength and continue to have the determination to pass.

Do Nothing Monday

Since Saturday and Sunday were pretty busy, I'm forcing myself to do nothing but surf the internet and/or watch movies all day. No chores! So far, so good. Tomorrow is gonna be a day for chores and errands. Got run to the grocery store and the post office. Then I need to further scour the house for items to be gotten rid of. Right now, it's looking kind of messy but, I know, once I get everything together that I'm going to get rid of, the rest of the house will look awesome and be much more clean and organized.
I'll post pics tomorrow of the furniture that will be for sale at the yard sale.
