Well, I think I’ve neglected my blog long enough. Things have been very busy … I was on leave for a few weeks, and my parents came to visit over Christmas. It was “go, go, go!” every day for a week — very fun but it’s nice to be back to normal in a way! One nice thing about having guests is that I usually see things on the island I haven’t seen yet, like the Pearl Harbor memorials (this photo is of the flag flying over the USS Arizona Memorial). I’m back at work now for the next few days, and next week I start six beautiful weeks of training, meaning I don’t have to get up at 2 am for a while! As far as other good news goes, I recently found out that I made first increment on the advancement cycle … this means I start getting paid for E-6 next month for instead of waiting until June :) So, lots of good things going on right now … life’s pretty good!
Today has been a great day. Ace is home (he got back on Monday), we had a good night last night (we saw the new Narnia movie and had some excellent Indian cuisine afterwards with some friends), and today has been a great no-work be-lazy-around-the-house kinda day. We got up real early, Ace cooked a wonderful breakfast, and then sat on the back porch for awhile. After much sitting around and doing nothing, we made a delicious lunch (pan-seared rosemary-garlic lamb chops with garlic-herb fried potatoes and a side salad, and of course a glass of chardonnay), and then sat outside on the porch again. That’s when I captured this photo of one of the many lizards that like to call our backyard its home. Ah, what a day. Christmas is just around the corner, my parents will be here soon to celebrate, and I only have three more days of work before I officially go on leave :) I can’t wait!
That’s right! Kashi, my amazing acrobatic cat, is going to have his first TV appearance this Sunday, December 4th. A few months back, I submitted a video of him to America’s Funniest Home Videos (yes, it’s still on the air!), and yesterday I heard the final word that my video is going to be aired this weekend! So, here’s the info:
Sunday, December 4th
America’s Funniest Home Videos on ABC
(Check your local listings for the time and channel … it’s different depending on where you live)
The video is of my cat (above) chasing after a laser pointer, and then jumping up the wall and falling behind a chair.
I hope all of you get the chance to see my kitty cat star!
