I have hope again! Last week was a hard one. I was told several times by my medical board liaisons that it was unlikely that I would be getting out of the Army in time to attend school this fall. I was quite upset about it. My boss even asked me today if I was doing ok and did I need to talk to anyone. Today, though, I had an appointment with the VA liaison. She said the process is taking about 4 months - and my time starts today! So, it would be a complete rush to get out of here on time, but it would be possible. I am willing to jump through hoops to make this happen. I am just glad someone gave me some hope again because thinking about missing school and being stuck here for another 8 months or so was really depressing.
Today after work I got to do some shopping. I was out of printer ink and paper so I went to staples which happens to be in the same shopping center as A.C. Moore and Bed Bath & Beyond. So you know I had to go to all three. I went to A.C. Moore looking for some inspiration, and found a really good sell so I got some goodies:
I saved 18$! And, that table cloth in the background of the photo, that is what I got from Bed Bath & Beyond. I had a 20% off coupon. I had been looking at a similar table cloth at Pier One but well I am too cheap to buy it there. So, I found this one & got it! I was originally looking for cut gloves but they don't sell them. Guess I'm gunna have to order those online.
I then went to pick up my last two pots from pottery class. They are not glazed so I wont waste your time with them. I'll show them to you in a month or so when they get glazed and fired.
Then I hit up Barns & Noble. I was in rare form today - usually I don't feel like being so productive on a week night. I got the new Eat Clean Diet Book:
I am hoping that it teaches me something new and gives me some much needed motivation! Did I tell you guys about our vacation plans? We are going to Hawaii this summer! I am so excited. Mom and Dad have both been, but not me. And I have a friend who lives there (hi Ginni!) I cannot wait.
Ok, well its my bedtime! "See" you guys tomorrow for List it Tuesday!!
