So today was one of those days. One of those days where I'm bitter towards the Navy. Deep in my schedule is this thing called deployment. But before that happens, there's work-ups. And slated very soon is a half-Command detachment on to the boat where Mr. Wookie will be constructing the 'ready room.'
Guess you can tell I'm a little bitter in that I get to be the one who does the dishes since Mr. Wookie has to spend his weekend at Home Depot, Lowe's and inside the garage building the varying parts to the ready room. Mr. Wookie knows my angst isn't directed at him - but the task. Because nothing makes for an awesome weekend like learning that Friday you're going to be Bob Villa for the next 48 hours.
For anyone who's appreciated emailing home during deployment, you can thank the Mr. Wookie-types in the world. Because that's exactly what he's building here. Oh, and let's not discredit the Home Depot lady who couldn't read the bar code so she rung up a $30 piece of pine for $4.01. Not. gonna. say. anything.
And since it's been awhile since this bitch has seen the blogosphere, here's some love.
