Well, I finally have a little time to catch up. First of all...I do believe that Hilary is THE ONLY PERSON ON EARTH WHO READS THIS. That being said "Hi Hil...I love you".
I didn't end up having my little brother drive out from NOLA with me. Nope...instead I got Mark's sister. It worked out ok. It's just that I have forgotten what it's like to be 15 and I have little patience for anyone who acts 15...regardless of whether that is their AGE or not. I need to get over this. Donovan will be 15 before I know it! He will be a year old in May though! My BABY....has already been in my arms for almost a year. I can't believe it. And Mark and I have been married almost THREE YEARS! HOLY COW! Neither of us has shot the other either. Amazing. Right now he's going through a sort of seperation anxiety. I don't know what it is...but he is calling me ALL DAY LONG...with nothing to say except "What're you doing? Who are you with? I miss you, I love you" But, he sent me a bouquet of roses the other day. They are beautiful, but the smell awful. They don't smell like roses. I guess when they get into genetically engineering roses for looks, the smell factor goes right out the window. They smell like a foot.
So, I checked into my new unit yesterday. Well, I still have some checking in to do, but they know who I am now, etc. They had to find me a job. It's weird that the Marine Corps would send me somewhere where they didn't have a spot for me...but that's ok. The job I normally do for the Corps is in one office...but I will be working in a different office, do curriculum stuff for the Recruit Depot. From what I gather (I have yet to really sit down and look at what I am gonna be doing) I will be making up a curriculum that the recruits will learn from while in boot camp. (They have classes on things like Marine Corps history, customs and courtesies, etc.) WHAT A RESPONSIBILITY! I will have a hand in making Marines in a direct (though indirect...) way. I say that because they will be learning from my material...(direct) even though I won't be present to teach it (indirect). I think I am starting to get a little goofy here...I should go to bed. LOL!
