It feels like April just started... but a week's gone by already! It was a crazy week, too. For you all keeping track of C's schedule... he's gone again. Well, wait... let's catch you all up.
WLC (Warrior Leader's Course) was 30 days from February to March. Less than a week after graduating WLC, his unit decided he was going to go to BNCOC real quick (Basic Non-Commissioned Officer's Course). So he did that for the last week of March and first week of April. He graduated BNCOC first in his class, with "Superior" marks in every column, two days ago on April 5th.
Yesterday, April 6th, he flew to Thailand for his next deployment! No pictures from any of that... we were up at 4am yesterday morning so that I could drive him to his meeting point for Thailand. It was dark and we were all sleepy. LOL
I have no idea what level of communication he'll have once over there. They will be in a very rural area, sleeping on the floor of some old school building it sounds like. He took his cell phone and laptop just in case.
I only have 3 new pictures for today... more soon, tho, I'll bet. E starts her modelling classes today! For today's class we had to buy her strappy heels for runway work. I wish I could be a fly on the wall for THAT class. hehehe A fly with a camera!
Anyway.... I recently got bangs cut into my hair. I'm still not sure I like it. Keep waiting for it to grow on me. And I finally got new glasses. I am the king of keeping old glasses WAAAAAAAY TOO LONG... until the prescription is long outdated AND they're horribly out of style. So this is me leaping back into trendiness.
I don't know how well you can see them, I guess... but they're purple frames with rectangular lenses!! I never noticed this on people before I was told I had to get new glasses... but all the available glasses are rectangles now! The whole wall was covered in them, and at first I hated them and wanted something more like my old ones. But I do like these now. At least they're not bent and broken like the old ones.
OH! And they're made of titanium. So they twist and bend and warp all without breaking! I wish all of my glasses had been made of this stuff!
Here are a couple pictures of Bruiser the rat. I took these so that I can start to find him a new home. He's at the end of his rope in THIS house. He has started barking nearly all the time and is impossible to potty train!
