Almost at the one month point

until deployment is over.  I wanted to give you an update on some things.

Miss Angel had her vet appointment.  The vet facility here on post is very nice.  The staff is friendly.  Angel had her annual checkup, three-year rabies vaccination, and distemper shot.  She is 17lbs and needs to lose a little bit of weight.  So no human food and I am reducing down how much I feed her for the two meals.

I have finished reading the third book.  The first book was The Surrendered Wife by Laura Doyle.  I liked this book very much because I felt like it put into words what a male or how a male thinks in a relationship.  The second book, Stories around the Table by Elva Resa.  This book is a collection of stories that both military spouses and Veteran spouses share in regards to their experience as a military or Veteran family.  The third book, Dinner with the Smileys by Sarah Smiley is a book about an active duty family and the dinner guests they have once a week, while a US Sailor is deployed for 13 months.

Work has kept me busy with new tasks.  As Budget Manager I am responsible for tracking expenses and revenue from projects.  I am using the University financing system to become as familiar with that as possible and learning how to pull reports.

I have started some planning for Nathan's homecoming as well as doing a little research on a possible vacation.

I put together and sent off the last package to Nathan before he comes home.  I have called it the Anniversary Package.  I am hoping he gets it for our Anniversary.

The lilies are finally blooming and I don't think Nathan and I could have literally planned that any better.  The lilies opening up so close to our Anniversary.  The banana trees/plants are also rather tall.

I see you!

An insurance quote did come in for the modular home, $1800 to $2000.  Have you had any luck with insurance for a modular home over 30 years old?

How was the rest of your spring start to the summer?
