Off to the lawyers to sign away this morning. However before that it is Aiyre's first day of summer school and the start of the second week of Evan's camp.

For those of you I have not yet told... my marriage has ended. To be honest, it has really been over for a couple years and we've just been coasting and not putting effort into it. When I left to go to Norfolk in March we were both excited to have me leave. That wasn't a good sign. So, after a month I returned home and we talked it out and decided to move towards a divorce.
Monday we sign all the paperwork with the lawyers for an uncontested divorce where we agreed to all the terms ourselves and just need the courts to sign off on it. That might not be until December with the backlog and it won't be until 90 days after that when the divorce is final. So, it might be a full year from when I originally left until we are finally divorced.

I got deployed down to Norfolk Naval Shipyard back on Ides of March. I've felt like a fish out of water but am starting to get the hang of it.

I had 4 days I had to take off at work. Policy stated that I had to take it right away(week #1). I opted to do that. The task manager asked me to delay some of it to week #2 as we had a milestone at the end of week #2. I didn't understand that he was serious. He was asking me to violate company policy and it was a ridiculous request anyway. What did it matter if I took the days first or in the following week? Regardless, it meant 6 working days until the deadline and 4 days off.
Apparently he was serious and mad that I didn't do it and worried we would miss the deadline as a result of my not doing what he wanted. I did make the deadline, finished a day ahead of schedule and took the days off according to policy and when I wanted them. Well, my line manager found out and chewed me out today and now I've got to email them, with a couple days notice, before I take off any more time. WTF? Do managers not understand basic math? 5-4+5 = 6 and so does 5-2+5-2. Better yet my way kept me off the list of people abusing the time off policy which goes weekly to upper management.

Friday at last. Hopefully tomorrow's schedule at work will have us out of there by noon. The last couple days here(Ingleside TX) haven't been too bad. The humidity lifted after some storms blew through and the winds started blowing from the north west blowing the moist air back out to sea.
My feet have really been killing me. The boots don't have a lot of padding and most of the work I've been doing involved being on my feet. Its also really dusty and dirty so I really need a shower before bed. I've been staying at the Comfort Inn, which has great amenities, but the bed is horribly hard and I haven't slept good yet. Really looking forward to getting into my own bed.
