Not the best weekend. One of the computer systems was down at Fort Bragg, so there was no time for scenarios. So I only got to qualifiy with my M-16. I got 33 out of 40, so not too bad. I would've been happier with 36+. But a coupleI hit all of the 300 meter targets, though. It was all computerized (not like the real range we went to in November). It was still kinda cool, but I was so exhausted Saturday night, as I haven't been sleeping well lately. Sunday I took the PT (Physical Training) test....and failed miserably. Well, I failed the run by a little over 2 minutes. If I don't take it and pass by February 25th then I will be demoted, and my school appointment in New Jersey for March 4th will be cancelled. Bah! But once I do pass it, because I have so much time in service and time in grade, I will be re-promoted immediately. Go figure. I'll give it a shot. I just hate running alone. I enjoy running, but give me a running partner.
Work has gotten a little too busy. Things got pretty busy for a good spell there, and I have tons of paperwork to catch up on. I'm getting there. But our copier went kaput. Boss says he's requisitioned a new one, but for several thousand dollars it takes approval that corp. thinks we have time for. I did get a table top fax, scanner, copier, printer today. It's pretty nice, too. But I have about 1,500 pages that are awaiting copying, and I don't think a table top can handle that load. I may have to give it a go, though.
It's cold and rainy out AGAIN! I'm so sick of the rain! I pass by the airport sometimes, depending on the route I take, to and from work. Often there are several deer out grazing in the marshy area near the end of the tarmac. But the river is so engorged that it has overflowed it's banks and that entire area is completely under water. More rain is only making it worse. I have a couple of small lakes in my back yard. It's getting depressing. And the weatherman says the cold is here to stay for a little while. No snow. Just cold, wind, and rain. I might go stir crazy over it!
