We had a full day yesterday. We had to start our Sunday way earlier than we usually do because we had an hour drive to Jacksonville for the birthday party. We got to see the Camp Lejeune base theater for the first time, lol. Camp Lejeune is my favorite base of any that I've ever been on. You feel like you're on a military base when you're there. We passed a huge convoy and there was another one forming up in the theater parking lot. You just don't get that kind of thing on an air base which is all the Mister would ever be stationed on. Lots of aircraft taking off and landing, but no tank crossings, grenade launching areas, or ammo dumps. I've been coming and going on that base since 1991 and it still doesn't get old for me. They also have a nice exchange which we took advantage of while the girls were watching the movie. We bought ourselves a snazzy flat screen HDTV for our bedroom. It's an inch smaller than our old tv but the screen seems bigger. Maybe it's because it's not surrounded by the huge box our old one was in.
After the party, base exploring, and shopping, we headed over to our friends' house to hang for a bit and to say goodbye. They'll be moving to Texas shortly for a transfer. Hopefully, we'll get to see them this summer but who knows. We have plans to tour Texas but you know what they say about the best laid plans. After ten years, I am heartily tired of saying goodbye to good friends. I have more friends out of state than I do in and they're literally scattered coast to coast.
Anyway, we got home last night around 5'ish, ate a light dinner, and I explored the variety of Twitter spinoffs before hitting the couch to watch The Next Food Network Star. It was good. From the looks of it, someone cries on every episode, lol. Get a grip people. I'm really interested to see how far Shane gets because he's only 19. Wow! At 19 my specialty was a rotisserie chicken from the grocery story and a box of Velveeta shells and cheese, lol.
So, I'm really tired this Monday morning and feel really scattered. I hope at least some of this post makes sense. I'm off for some Cranergy and a coffee bar.
