Weekend Fun

Our weekend was spent at the Founders Inn. Sunday was nice and lazy. We headed to a Plaza to hit Subway and while we were out we drove around a bit. We went into a Pet Store to check out the prices of dog food and to buy a Chuckit for Angel. We left hers at my parents’ house. We ate supper on Sunday night at one of the Restaurants at the Inn. It was fairly expensive and neither one of us were impressed. There wasn’t much for a selection at the Buffet and dishes weren’t refilled. We went for a walk after supper with Angel around the lake. It was beautiful however we were expecting the Christmas lights to be on in the garden during our walk so that was a little disappointing.

Monday we were up bright and early to take Nathan to school. He had to be in at 7:30 and we left the Inn at 6:15am. We were glad that we left that early because traffic from Virginia Beach to Norfolk was horrible. There were a significant number of accidents and the amount of people heading into the base that early was crazy. We made it in at 7:20am. Once Nathan was out I headed off base to head to housing. Housing is located off base. This is where I learned that not all the gates to the base are open for outgoing traffic. It took me another 20 minutes to get off base and head in the direction that I needed to go.

I got to the PPV Housing Office at 8am and had to wait for a call to be made to our specific housing manager. The housing office didn’t have our keys since we are in Senior Housing. I drove back onto the base and met our housing manager at the house. Once I got a quick tour of the house and some quick notes on things to do and things I still needed I started to unpack the car and get settled in.

Once settled in I headed out to deposit some checks and to get some groceries. When I got home Nathan was home from school.
