Calm before the storm

I'll roll through the good news first. My eyes are doing great, better then 20/20 in both. I wake up every day a little happier that I can now see without aid. I'm finishing up my purchase of the house I've been talking about for the past few months. All that is left is to move in, unfortunately I will not be able to do so but my girlfriend, with some help from friends and family, will be settling in before I return for leave. My new vehicle that I purchased at the end of last deployment is doing great despite a dire need of a wash that I've not been able to get too yet. A new roomate has filled the empty room due to a friend leaving back for home, we get along, that is about all I can say. Last but not least, my high speed internet rocks, I love it. I've been catching up on a lot of the shows I've missed since my deployments and it's saved me so much gas money trying to go back to base to get on. Bought a N-router, little sucker puts out a powerful signal that annoys the neighbors to no end since I've got it locked down for just the people in this house. It is funny to see that I can get a decent connection nearly half a block from the house...heheh.

I've been working twelve hours a day for the past month and a half and it's really starting to get me pissed. The reason for this being that other people haven't been doing the job that they've been assigned. The brilliant solution to this problem was not to get the people who fouled up to fix it but to get people that do their jobs to do it for them... More on this later, it's late and I've got duty tomorrow and another two weeks of maintance to do along with my eight plus hours of watch.

Good news is wonderful! Congrats on the house.

"The brilliant solution to this problem was not to get the people who fouled up to fix it but to get people that do their jobs to do it for them..." That's horrible, but it does sound familiar. Sorry you have to work so hard to fix other people's messes. Just keep thinking about the new house.

Heheheh, yes, I am thinking about that. The most atrocious thing about this whole ordeal is when I do get an entire day off I have to spend nearly half of it in a coma due to lack of sleep. It should be over next week though so I've stocked up on plenty of energy drinks to tide me over till then or my heart finally gives up. ;)

Yay for the happy stuff!

Boo for having to work longer hours to fix up people's crap. Do you know how long these hours will last?

I'm hoping that the horror ends this coming week. We are taking a family cruise to Maui soon after so there will be much geocaching to be had, on the other side of the island from the ship.... ;)
