This morning's PT was all about the abs. We did muscle failure on the abs in the gym and I can tell my stomach is going to be sore tomorrow.
I had an appointment for DPW to come in between 0800 - 1200 today to fix our dishwasher. It was nice because I was able to hang out with my wife and her cousins for the better part of the morning. DPW didn't come until 1130, so I ended up just staying home for my lunch as well. A pretty laid back morning.
I headed to the office after lunch and it was a typical day for me. I just read the Army Times that I purchased. Near the end of the day the NCOIC gave me an SOP book that basically goes over everything we do in the shop. I started reading that and even though I will not be able to remember it all, I'm glad we do have a resource to go to if there are questions.
I filled out my required weekend checklist that lets everyone know what I'll be doing and who I'll be with. I gave a detailed account letting them know I'll be doing some sight seeing and immersing myself in the German culture. I'm starting to think I'll have a little fun with this list each week instead of being pissed off at it like everyone else. I will throw in just a little sarcasm or humor, but not enough to raise any eyebrows.
I left for the day and headed home to visit with my wife and our guests some more. We ate dinner, then the women made lumpia. I learned how to wrap them and we all joined in and wrapped all of them up. Looking forward to eating them at a later date!
On a side note…I'm really finding it difficult to write about my daily routine since I've moved here to Germany. My job is nothing like I thought it would be and after my initial in-processing my days are finished, my daily routine is pretty boring. Also having our guests here leaves me a lot less time to write each night. I guess we'll see where this goes. Maybe I'll change to a weekly update…maybe I'll write more about the people I work with and come across…or maybe I'll just focus on the places I go and see (which will be more now that we have a car). I guess we'll see if anything changes anytime soon. I have to go to the field in a week and a half, so I'll probably write that down and then post it all when I come back after the week long exercise. We'll see if anything changes after that.
