As per No Smoking, We Have our Own, feast your eyes upon the masks handed out by the LT tonight (and my lil makeshift sign). On Post they Control burn the underbrush in order to lessen the likelyhood of actual forest fires. This doesn't seem to stop the general public (or soldiers) from warning us to call the fire deptartment... because there seems to be a FIRE on Post!! Tonight after my regular shift ended they starter a burn somewhere near All American freeway entrance. It started out ok, like they do, until people driving by were telling us they felt sorry for us. The LT swung by to hand out masks (boy I wish I'd had one that day on Yadkin when I thought I was going to throw up from smoke inhalation!) They itch fiercely and don't block near enough, but they are indeed better than nothing. At the end of my 21 hour day the smoke seems to be just another irritant. Woke at 0515 to take Hubby to work and couldn't go back to sleep due to class. Done with the assignments I could do there
so I basically farted around in Word. Couldn't sleep AFTER class so I argued amiably with Faygo and Erich until having to leave to my 12 hr day at the glorious employ that is Wackenhut.
In good news, ECU wrote me back telling me they'd evaluate the unofficial transcripts I sent them to see where I could drop into their Bachelor's program (omg the chance to get out of FTCC's 3-year associates track? Yes please! Who purposefully stacks their 2-yr degree classes so you HAVE to take them in 3 years... AFTER taking all the OTHER classes you need. Ridiculous!!
Could be going to a 311 concert with Hubby on Friday, which would kinda destroy the plans I'd setup, but we can really do them any day we manage to steal to be together... 311 he's been waiting for, for 8 years he said? Wow. Worth the effort I think. I'm rather excited to go, since I know it was something HE wanted to do. I drag him to a lot, and he doesn't get to drag me to much (besides the gym :P)
Ok, brain is dripping out ears. Time to pretend I want to be here for another 30 mins. Eek.
/yearning for her cool, soft bed...
