Whew. Busy busy day today. I've been making lots of 550 bracelets, lanyards, dog collars, even bead animals lately for people. Running out of cord lol

So today I was talking to my mom about all of it....of course she brought up rope halters...what I've been avoiding like the plague lol

But apparently she's got like 10-15 people asking her when ill make one for them!

So now I have to order new cord....all new colors all new designs, and do somme experimenting, since I've never made a rope halter before...besides getting a leadrope and rigging a temporary one to get my hrose outta the field haha.

So hopefully ill have my new cord by next weekend and I can get started with it....ill actually be making a hefty little profit from them....

Shoot maybe ill just expand my horizons and start doing combos for all my endurance friends back home haha. Anything to help get some green back in my truck/ranch fund rofl

Other than that...its going to be a SLOOOOOW week. I have to take my truck in (haha escape not truck....wishful thinking) to get the appraisal done so I can get the bumper fixed, tomorrow is work as usual, but wednesday....wednesday is going to be AWESOME.

We (my unit) are going down to waimea bay for our "training day". Doing beach pt, and then chilling at the beach....were apparently supposed to practice building "individual fighting positions"...but every time I hear them tell us to remember our E-tools to do this ijust picture all of us building sand castles O_O lol.
And the best part.....

WE GET TO WEAR CIVVIES! Woooooh! Best. Training day. Ever.
Haha its basically jsut going to be a fun day. AWESOMENESS

Aaaand then my parents get here saturday, theyre going to meet us (me betina and Armywife) at the rodeo and ill have the weekend with em. Woooot

Good lord. Seems like everytime things start going steady I get yanked in another direction.

Yesterday I left work early. I had to take my car down to the other side of the island to get the appraisal done....i was literally 30 sec. Away from the shop and I get a call from one of my NCO's....

1sgt and CSM were waiting for me and I needed to be in 1sgt's office in my cleanest uniform ASAP.

I immediatly start n hour away on the other side of the island, stuck in construction traffic. I have NO idea what its about. I hadnt gotten in trouble (lately lol)
So I start speeding back as fast as I can. As soon as I get there I change and rush over to his office...but he's already in CSM's office. So me and myy squad leader head over still freaking out. Im practically shaking and my squad leaders telling me "calm down. Don't stress out. Your about to find out whats going on etc"

1sgt steps out and pulls me in to the look at my face and he knows im freaking out. I've never had to go in front of somebody so high ranking im nervous as hell. I HATE talking to authority figures. I always get nervous even when its just casual conversation so you can imagince how I think im about to be booted out of the army or something.

He tells me not to worry and CSM just wants to talk.

So the meeting starts, and apparently the E-8 (navy type) that I work for now has been b**chin about me....he already hated me because he hates ALL soldiers but I was like a particular thorn in his ass.

So my CSM tells me he plans to move me to Delta Co.

HALLELUJAH! I've wanted D. Co since I got here. D. Co is 100% tactical, so ill be outside, working in the sunshine doing highspeed REAL army. And not sitting at a desk for 8 hrs a day driving myself insane, trying to avoid everybody.

The days will be longer, and harder. But for realz I am super excited.

People here don't get that some just are NOT meant to be trapped in doors with NO windows all day. Some people just CANNOT sit at a desk staring a t a conputer screen doing nothing all day.

Some people do better outside, getting dirty and muddy, working with their hands playing with weapons and other high speed fun things like that lol

The best part.....................

D. Co. DEPLOYS!!!!!!!!!! So hopefully ill get a deployment here! Wooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhh!

So while yes....this is my "last chance" and its not necessarily a promotion or a reward.....its totally a reward lol.

I KNOW that I can prove myself in Delta. I KNOW that I will be high speed up the shiznit. And this is probably the best thing that's happened to me since I got here! (well 2nd best next to the ranch lol)

After my meeting with CSM, 1SGT and I went back to his office, and he squad leader (not the temporary one I have but the one that is TDY now) doesnt like plt sgt...doesnt like me (but he's not exactly a good NCO) and the E-8 navy type I work for...hates me...

Plus theres going to be ALOT of resentment because almost 90% of our battalion wants to be in Delta and im getting it so more people are probably going to hate me....awesome

But whatever. I know who my friends are here.

I honestly just want this week to be done, so I can see my parents, and move to Delta. Hahaha

So, you're army and had to work for the Navy?

Not sure I understand......

Anyway, why did he think you were a thorn in his behind?

I'm thinking you really need a good mentor....maybe try saying hello first Sargent every day so he knows you.....before....he needs to see you....?

Seriously, you need to do some damage control and try and make sure the CSM and 1st Sgt sees you in the way you want to be seen.

I work at a joint operation facility...thats controlled by navy.

Oooh I am. The only REAL problem now is this navy E-8 that basically HATES EVERYTHING. So by me getting delta...which I've been asking for for 1 1/2 yrs ill be getting away from navy guy and hopefully getting some positive looks from now on

Whew todays been awesome so far. Me and Army Wife went to the HWRA at Kualoa ranch about some INTERESTING methods and was pretty awesome.

Army Wife was so excited to ride the mechanical of course I had to try it wasnt pretty...

I've ridden one before, but this one was like oiled plastic, no hide no real grip to it just a little rope.

I was wearing jeans (of course) so the first spin and off I go flying haha

Army wife did pretty good though. She aws in shorts so she just stuck to its back haha.

Now im just waiting for my parents plane to land so I can go see em!
