Five on Friday #17
UNOMy Disney World recaps are almost finished. I'm just adding captions and filling in blanks and they're all done. It's miraculous how fast I operate when given an abundance of free time and don't have to edit any photos.... Oh yeah, I forgot my camera for the 2 events at Disney that I wanted to have it for. I'm sure that helped. Rarrrr.

DOSAs much as it infuriates me to have to drive over an hour and a half (or more depending on where you're going) away for a medical appointment because the Navy refuses to give referrals for most things, it gets me off work, so there's that. Having made the official decision to get out of the Navy means I really need to get my medical crap wrapped up so I can get a copy of my medical records to send to the VA for processing, which can take months. It is actually suggested you do this 6 months before your last day, but I know that my stuff isn't going to be solved by then. /facepalm. So yay for all the appointments ever but not by the "deadline."
I also got crap from someone at work for not making the appointment in the morning, since I'm normally free from work in the afternoon. I, mostly politely, explained that when they call you to make the appointment and the closest appointment is within the week, but you know that there's no way that work could cover that lack of manning with such short notice, you take the first appointment possible, even if its 3 weeks out. Is it November yet?
TRESPhil is getting his teefs did on Monday and I'm so excited. Mostly because it means that Teh Greyhound Neighbor-Wife and I get to make the adventure to Richmond and we're getting massages while we're in the area, since Olive is also getting her teeth cleaned. Most greyhound parents start fretting about the anesthesia related to dentals since greyhounds sometimes have issues with it, but I don't. In a similar vein, I don't get nervous when I have to go under for anything either, so there's that. He survived last time, I'm sure he'll do fine again. It's probably that mentality that will burn me one day, but for now, it's true.
QUATROI've still not stopped listening to Oceans by Hillsong United. There was one afternoon after I came home from walking the dogs that I listened to the song on repeat until it was bedtime. It is a really good thing I live alone sometimes.
I've been trying to mix it up with some Goo Goo Dolls (because I could also listen to "Come to Me" on repeat as well) and Of Monsters and Men and other bands, but they don't have the same feel as "Oceans" so yeah, repeat, repeat, repeat.. times a MILLION.
My mind hasn't wrapped around the fact that I'm going to NC in 2 weeks for a week. I have sooo many activities planned! Teh Sister and I are getting matching tattoos, I'm going to a PostSecret event in Charlotte, I'm hanging out with Teh Worldwide Jesus Lover, I'm watching Teh BFF get married, Meri gets to have her first long road trip.. All the adventures! I also wanted to buy a gun while I was in town, but I'm not sure that will work out, but we'll see. I'd like to go to the range this weekend and try different 9mms, but we'll see what happens. Not that I have anything planned other than giving Yurtle a bath (ewww bug-splat!), but I've been very non-committal about all the things lately. It's bothering me, but at the same time, the flexibility isn't hurting my feelings in the least bit. Although if I really step back and look at the situation, I'm sure it's something way bigger, but we won't get into that.
