Mississippi Trip

Friday, January 31, 2014

There has been so much going on in the past few days. It's hard for me to find the time to sit down at the computer and actually blog when I'm out of my normal settings. Plus the fact that I have been spending time with John has not kept me motivated to take time away from him to blog much.

I've enjoyed spending nearly 15 days with him though it is quickly coming to a close. While we were in Mississippi we didn't get to do a whole lot. Most of our time was spent in our room (though it was lovely) I'm sure y'all don't care to hear how much Netflix I watched while I was down there. In between watching the TV series Firefly and finishing the TV show Alias, I did manage to get out and take a walk around the track on base. It was very nice to get out and move some especially while getting better from the cold I had.

Saturday night we went to the Hard Rock Casino with some of the other people in the Fisher House. It was a lot of fun. John played Blackjack while I spent a mere $3 on the 5 cent slot machines. I actually won about $1 but just spent all of it in the slots. I'm not a huge gambler. Though I did have fun being there and watching John play at the table.

We had to cut our time in Mississippi short by a little bit because of the horrible weather that was about to cripple Alabama and Southern Mississippi. Monday after John has his "5 day post op" appointment, we stopped by the beach so I could "touch" the Gulf of Mexico. Literally all I did was touch my hand in the water. Although it was a relatively warm day considering it was about to start snowing I wasn't about to step in it.

I also got to see the lighthouse which was kind of a disappointment. I expected it to be much bigger. It was small compared to the lighthouses in the Outer Banks. I still got my picture with it because I think lighthouses no matter how big are pretty cool. Especially the fact that the beach and the lighthouse was less than half a mile from the base!

I look forward to getting back into blogging. Hope to catch up with y'all soon.
