Thanks to everyone asking about my mom. She is much better and is back to work. Odd thing is she was down with the flu, but she had gotten her flu shot. Guess that flu shot isn't as great as they are saying it is. Mike is just now getting better. It's bad when he gets sick because it takes him forever to get better.
I had drill this past weekend. I really wasn't looking forward to it, as I had a PT test (Physical Training). I had to do so many push-ups and sit-ups for two minutes each. Then I had to run 2 miles. I didn't do so hot on the run. They are sending me to Orlando, Florida January 22-24 for a Yellow Ribbon Campaign. It's anti-suicide classes for those who have been to Iraq. I came back four years ago. I'd probably have done that by now if I were going to, but they say it's manditory, so off I go. Then they are telling me that I will take another PT test next month. This time I must pass the run. If I pass I will be going to WLC (Warrior Leadership Course) in South Carolina to get a promotion. If I fail the run, I get demoted. No pressure. A friend in my unit said he will pace me, but I have to lose at least five pounds in a month. I'm not over weight, but I could stand to lose 15 to 20 pounds. I've got my work cut out for me.
