navy life, this and that

Photo blog and lion babies

So, J wound up *not* graduating after all yesterday, even though we’d stayed up late getting his new uniform ready. Yay BDUs, right? Well, they (the instructors) decided that they’d hold off and let him graduate with the junior class on 8/18 so that he can stay in the shop during his extension. It’s really a favor to him because otherwise he’d get a two week TAD (temporary assigned duty) and that could’ve been no fun. As it stands, he’s going into the shop every day for a few hours in the morning and home by lunch. I can live with that. ^_^

I opened a Shutterfly account yesterday and am playing with the photo blog features. Now I’m wondering if there’s a way to set up an album slideshow that can scroll through on this site with photos from Shutterfly. Hmm. The page I made yesterday is from summer camp and is pretty decent. We just needed a place for the photos where parents (and campers) could view and order them. I like the layouts of them (in terms of a photo journal thing) and the scrolling albums, but I like this site as a blog more. Will have to play with it.

The lion babies are getting so big! They’re all around 32 to 33 lbs right now, except for Ajani, who weighs in at 37.2 lbs. Chunk-a-munk! They’re very playful and very strong, and I took some good photos but will hang onto them myself for a while. Don’t worry, I’ll share later. ^_^

Fun with hats and Nerf guns...

Last night we stayed up entirely too late, but it was game night and we had fun. Now it’s 2:30pm and I’m already crashing for the afternoon. Might have to curl up with a book and let myself doze for a while. I need a good nights’ sleep. The rest of the week will be spent cleaning out my dresser and the overhead storage spaces, but I’m taking a day off from that at the moment. I need a day with nothing to do.
