Well, I haven’t been writing here much because I can’t post pictures, for whatever reason, and it’s a downer. Want to show the crochet I’ve been doing. But we’re entering the home stretch. Just a little over a week left to be here on base. I don’t look forward to packing. Ick.
So, someone found my blog and contacted me. Said she enjoyed reading it, but I hadn’t updated in over a year. So here I am, updating.
I’m currently at Camp Dawson, WV with my hubby who is taking a school with the National Guard. So I’m here for a month, sitting in the room watching tv (or dvds) and crocheting. The annoying thing is that housekeeping has been coming in every day. For an introvert like me, it’s an invasion I don’t appreciate. Every third day would be plenty. However, I do feel like I might be getting cheated. When we arrived and I sat on the bed, I immediately noticed a problem. The mattress creaks. Yes, it is probably actually the “box spring” portion of the bed, though I don’t believe it’s a box spring. It’s the creaking of wood that I’m hearing. So every time you move, there is creaking. Very annoying. A couple days ago I saw some mattresses out by the dumpster. Yesterday, there were some out in the yard in front of our building. I’m beginning to wonder if our room isn’t due for a new mattress but they will wait until we leave. If that is true, I feel cheated.
I’m working on an afghan a friend ordered as a wedding gift. Can’t wait to finish it. I wish I could post a picture, but for some reason they aren’t coming through. Will have to research that.
Well, I did go to the help page, and pics on that page weren’t showing up either, so I guess I’ll have to wait until I get home to see if I need to work on them. The filter the army uses for internet connections is very annoying and I suspect that is what is causing my pics to look like “X” to me.
