I've been a bit distracted...

I thought I'd posted Monday, but apparently I didn't, and a post I had prepared for today's announcement showed up last week. Sheesh.

Things have been a bit fluid since we've been waiting on the date for Sonshine's swearing in and preparing for a new employee, as well as it being the lead-up to fireworks season. And then, the air conditioner went out at the office sometime over the weekend and as part of our lease agreement, we're responsible for it. I'm sure you know how costly A/C repairs are and I just don't have the cash. At least not until fireworks season is almost over or over, but a new unit is not what we had planned to do with our earnings. Not only that, but we just replaced the outside unit last year. Ugh. Apparently either our setup or the inside unit is wreaking havok on the outside unit.

But, all that aside... *drumroll please*

Our son is now an official member of the United States Navy. Yesterday, we witnessed him taking his oath. Even the Brown Eyed Girl drove up for the occasion.

 Listening to opening remarks.

 I, Sonshine, do solemnly swear...

Ship out date is October at this point...

Anyways, we're all proud and excited.

I am sooo proud of Sonshine. He is no longer a boy, but a grown man. Oh, my does that make me feel old!! When you say ship out - is that for training or on a ship? What has he chosen for his occupation?

Love that man ...

Ship is to go to basic training. After that comes A-school where he'll be trained in the specialty of his choice (helicopter mechanics), and then once he reaches the end of A-school, he should have an idea of whether he gets shore duty or sea duty and where...

Congrats to Sonshine!

Bummer about the AC. 4 years ago ours went out and three different companies told us it was unrepairable and had to be replaced for 8000-10,000 dollars. Then a friend told us about a guy who rebuilds ACs. He came out and for less than $1000 he fixed it and it is still working just fine 4 years later (though he warned us he couldn't guarantee how long it would last so fingers crossed). Have you looked into having yours rebuilt instead of replaced?
