today will be awesome

Today I am going to get my nails done, and then I am meeting Betty, and then it is off to 29 palms! I know I have said it before but I love that base.

Yesterday I called several marines and one of them is going to drive out to 29 palms with us, and then we are meeting up with some more marines. Rusty has to set this huge display up, so he needs a lot of help. I think I am there to just look pretty.

Tomorrow is Sam's graduation! I can't wait to go to MCRD and watch Sam graduate. I have not seen a marine graduation in years. Once again a ton of marines are heading down for that.

The kitten is so happy to be home! He was also the first to get up and have his breakfast. Every morning Rusty will give the cats wet food, so if you miss breakfast then you are screwed!

Rusty said that over the weekend he is going to dig out his grandfather photo albums. His grandfather was a marine and he was once stationed in Haiti. Is this what they call things coming full circle? Rusty is just so excited to share photo's and some marine corps history with Nikki. I don't get it, but Rusty was excited about it.

Amber got her income tax return check yesterday, but she is scared to go to the bank! I could not figure this out. Amber said that she thinks everyone will laugh at her because she has no job. This is really starting to get to Amber. I sure hope that she finds a job soon, or at least can pick up some odd jobs to help her out. I just know that something will happen for her. I just know that she will get a job.

Next week the guys are going to fix my car. It turns out that the radiator has a crack in it. I am just glad that I have guys who can do this for me. Rusty said that the radiator is only $150 dollars, so I am glad about that. I miss my grocery getter! I do think that I need to hippy her up some, but I have not figured out what I want to do to her.

Life is good

I always enjoy reading your last comment on your entry, 'life is good' and I think it is very good when you think that enough to state it. That says a lot to me about your capacity to see what there is about life to enjoy, the mindset to find the positives. That is healthy. So a good way to start my day, reading your entry this morning.
