Going away for a while

Stress is the trash of modern life – we all generate it but if you don’t dispose of it properly, it will pile up and overtake your life.

I’m going to DCO school folks. I’m going to try to suck it up and deal with still being sick. It’s best for the family because if I don’t, we’ll lose about $1200 (my work pays my regular salary while I’m on military leave and if I go in April, I won’t be working, so I’ll lose that… plus we’ll have to pay for someone to watch the dogs whereas I have someone here who will watch them for free).

So it really is in my best interest to try and do it now. Please pray for me because I’m not sure I have the strength. I still feel ill and weak, but I’m going to give it my all.

So, while I’m at DCO school, you will not be seeing any posts (we have no access to Internet… unless we get liberty next weekend and I can get off base). You will not see any Tweets (again, the liberty thing).

However, to keep us all looking forward to something good (okay,  ME looking forward to something good), here’s some tickers:

  1. Ok, for weeks I have been wondering what that school is! What do those letters mean? I’ll be sending you well wishes and can’t wait for you to come back to us in the twitter world =) You can do it!!!

  2. I’m not exactly sure how DCO school works, but if you have liberty in the afternoons, there’s a free internet cafe/coffee shop on base. I can’t for the life of me remember the name of it, but it’s right across the street from the E-Club and the Exchange. I spent many many hours there…

  3. Amanda: DCO = Direct Commission Officer. The Navy Reserve needs civilians from certain disciplines. Because of my civilian experience, I was chosen to become a Direct Commission Officer… meaning, I swear in and that’s it… I’m an officer in the Navy Reserve. However, we still have to go to a mini boot camp on the same campus as OCS (Officer Candidate School), which is where the soon-to-be active duty Navy officers do their intense 13 week training. We get a taste of it for two weeks.

  4. Hope you are doing well at DCO school! It’s just one more thing that would have gotten in the way of you being with Huzzy, so it’s great that you’re getting it over with 🙂
