Labor Day Weekend

Even with the Holiday weekend the hubbs had to work pretty much a good half day on Sunday and Monday he worked all day again. It's quite the bummer but you know it comes with the job. I didn't complain because well that wasn't going to make the situation any better. The pups and I enjoyed some nice quality time together at home. I ran a few errands around town but that was about the extent of my day. We caught up on some dvr and vegged out on the couch for the rest of Sunday. It happened to down poor right after I got home, so that squashed any plans we had of going for a run. Hints the reason for vegging out. 
~DAY 325~
Well today was suppose to be another half day for the hubbs but it didn't quite happen. It was a awful day for him at work. I feel so bad for him some times and wish I could make things better but sadly there's nothing I can do. I hate feeling helpless and out of control. Some of the other DS that he works with just don't do their job which leaves him to pick up the slack. He's not one to walk away till the job is done so he goes behind making sure everything is takin care of. Even if that means having to over see the privates mow the grass, because the DS on CQ is to lazy to do so. I've gone over and above with our company and the DS here. I'm always making sweet treats for them to munch on during long nights. This past Saturday when I went out to take pictures I took them all Gatorade's and snacks from the shoppette because it was so hot out at the range. But then it breaks my heart when the hubbs comes home and tells me how awful they all are and how they don't do anything. I told him it makes me not want to do anything for them any more or go out of my way for them. He says "I know right" because he does the same, by going out of his way for them. I know it sounds bad, but if your going to treat my husband awful then why am I going to go out of my way to do something nice for you. DONE!!! I refuse to play their games and give in to their poor pitty me act. Same with our Battalion its seriously the most disorganized unit possibly in the army. I really don't know how much more of their nonsense I am going to put up with. Its all about the rank here, (with the spouses) and they like to through that in your face. Last time I checked my husband earned and wore the rank so why am I treated differently because of what rank he is. Makes no sense to me, It's never bothered me and I've never had to deal with it before coming here. It's actually really sad how some spouses put themselves above others because of their spouses rank. You hear about it all the time but this is the first I've had to experience it.
I don't so much mind the city anymore, I've settled in and found my groove here. Now if only we can do something with the post and unit its self. Beginning to Mid March we are getting a new BC so I'm hoping that might help turn things around a bit, we will see.

On another note I'm going on vacation soon an I couldn't be more excited. I'm really looking forward to getting away for a while to seeing Family, My Spouse and Mistress. It's going to be a nice change of pace for a few weeks. I'll miss the hubbs something crazy because sadly he's not able to come with during the first part of my adventure & well the second part is GIRLS ONLY!!!!
When taking vacation from work I have to find my own sub to cover my hours at work. (talk about a drag) So this afternoon I sat down and finally nailed it out. I've been stressing about it for a while now, with the number of days I'm taking off I was worried about getting it all covered.
Just a few more week till I'm outta here, but for now its time to say goodbye to a long holiday weekend because its back to work tomorrow :(.

~DAY 326~

A few weeks? Dang that will be fun! I'm going away for 6 days in October and I already feel like that's too much by myself. I can't leave the puppy for too long!
