Do I Have To?!

Today is my busiest day of the week...I really just want to crawl back into bed and pull the covers over my head haha. 


Haha, I wish! :) 

I have a Care Team training class at 9am, if you aren't familiar with Care Team it basically means that if there is a death of a soldier/or family member within a unit there is a designated group of spouses that can help the families with whatever they may need. I think this training is amazing and necessary. I always encourage people to take it so they know how to deal with these type of situations.

After my class I am FINALLY getting my hair done. I have been putting this off for so long, it was suppose to happen in March but I didn't have the time while in Vegas. I can't wait to post a picture of how it turns out. 

Tonight, I will be attending an FRG leader seminar on post, it will be a chance to meet other FRG leaders and trade tips/tricks to have a successful FRG. I'm pretty excited about it.

It's supposed to be a lot cooler today than it has been so maybe I can sneak a run in at some point. :)

I hope you all have an amazing day!

  8. That's really great of you to be on Care Team. A crazy thing is that one of the expats here was struck by a car on his bicycle last night and was killed instantly. His wife is like me... here in Africa with no other family around. I could only imagine what she's going through, and the embassy doesn't have anything like that for spouses here. I don't feel like I know her well enough to take the initiative myself, especially without any sort of Care Team type of training. :(

  10. That is a busy day! Good luck getting it all in and hopefully not feeling exhausted by the end. I had the same thought about running with the cooler weather, but I'm not a fan of all the wind + dirt. I'll probably hit the pavement for at least a few miles though; the low temperatures are too good to pass up!

  19. I agree, the training is important. Hope that you'll never need it, but if something happens, it's best that there are a few people who have resources. Enjoy your day and can't wait for the new hair pictures!!

  21. Oh my gosh...I felt the same way today! From the moment I walked in the door at work I wanted to walk right back out! Haha :) Hope you had a great day friend!

  22. The FRG seminar sounds like an amazing event!! You always get to go to the coolest stuff! We've never had anything like that. I hope the training goes well also. I always hate that one, but you're right, absolutely everyone should do it. Even just to learn the information and processes.

  23. A wife in Christopher's unit just died and they're all trying to figure out how to help the soldier/new widower. I don't know if there's a Care Team set up here (they're slightly unorganized!) but I'll tell Christopher he should look into it!
