Yesterday was my kind of Monday! I had taken the day off from work to get some errands done that I couldn’t do over the weekend. Then, I took the advantage of the rest of the day to get things done around the house like cleaning, laundry, etc. Who knew two small people like my husband and I could produce so much laundry!
In the morning I went to speak with a school counselor at a nearby college. I already have my degree but have been thinking of going back to get some certifications. It’s been about 5 years since I graduated college and I haven’t thought about going back since. I love not having homework. But I came to thinking that I liked the idea of working towards something. Plus, it will give me a little something to do! If you’re a military spouse, take advantage of your MyCAA which gives you a little money to pay for schooling. There are a lot of other resources out there, you just have to look for them.
After the visit with the school counselor, I headed off to my routinely scheduled doctor appointment. The clinic that I go to is about 40 minutes away from my house but I only go about once a month so it’s not that bad. Plus, it’s nice to have that long drive to just cruise in your car with some good music playing!
Once, I got home I still had some time to burn until my husband returned from work. I did some laundry, cleaned the house (ya know, boring stuff).
When I first moved here my parents came with to help out. My mom left me with some Kimchi sauce so all I had to do was mix it with cabbage and I have some fresh made Kimchi! While I was living with my parents, I never really had the urge to eat Kimchi but now that I live 2,000 miles away from my mom, I find myself missing her home cooking all the time. So, today I cut up some Napa cabbage, Korean radish, green onion and carrots then tossed it all together with that yummy sauce my mom made for me. It was super delicious-just as I was at home eating it. I decided to cook up some steak and rice to eat with the fresh Kimchi.
Mom’s are great, ya know? They always look out for you when you don’t even realize it. I didn’t think that I needed that Kimchi sauce but now I’m so thankful because it’s like having a piece of home when I’m so far away. Thank your moms when you get the chance. They have your best interest in mind and it’s the simple things that could mean the most.
Anyway, tomorrow is back to work for me. Totally not looking forward to it but time will pass.
Until next time,
