Today was a nice day! It was a slow start, but eventually dad and I headed to Eno River State Park. We'd heard from one of the vendors at CenterFest, a local art festival, that there was a sort of "water hole" further back than the usual swimming places, so we went on the hunt for it! Turns out it wasn't too hard to find, with a bit of research done beforehand on the internet. We took the "long" way on the way out to the spot, which was maybe three quarters of a mile, probably a bit less. There were three fishermen... and us! We sat and admired the view for awhile before politely telling the closest fishermen that we were going to swim. He told us not to worry about him; honestly, it didn't look like he was having much luck anyway.

Then it was home for a nice dinner: roasted chicken, orange-glazed carrots and corn on the cob. Mmmmm!
Yesterday, I submitted my last Air Force compensation paperwork (for moving some of my stuff to NC from DC) online, and I also sent in the correct form to obtain an absentee ballot for Minnesota, where I'm a resident.
Today, I printed out my Prescription Home Delivery forms and I'll put everything together today to send it out by mail.
Things are looking good! I head to Miami on Friday for a quick visit to my grandmother and other family and friends there, and I'll return next Monday. At that point, there'll be just ONE WEEK LEFT! I'm feeling ready, though... mostly.
Yahoo! The excitement is mounting!
