Daily Temperature Reading, 4/7

Okinawa | April 7, 2016


Hey baby, I appreciate you taking the time to talk to the Chaplain and me today. I appreciate the talk while you were there and I appreciate the AFTER talk too. I appreciate you sending me the breakfast directions. Although when I went back to read what I had screwed up about it, I felt like a dumbass. You had started to say that putting it all together was a process and things had to be done in a certain order or else it would not turn out right and I didn’t do that because I didn’t read it carefully. But, I appreciate you trying to walk me through it. Thank you.

New Information:

The Chaplain here went on leave starting yesterday. So I am going to have to send him an email telling him what Chaplain “R” said. I need to send Chaplain “R” a thank you email as well. The JAG was in on the training today and just flat out did not come back after. So I will hit him up in the morning in reference to what recourse we have with L.H. Those douchebags are going to honor that contract, same with the LT. I called community services and asked about anger management and was told that they don’t have a class going right now, but they are going to have one “soon”. So I signed up for whenever the next one is going to be. I have to go in to talk to the help desk again tonight because one of the two keys that we reordered does not want to play. Sigh. Then I have to be BACK in at 0900 for another class-an inspection/pay day activities. At least it will be an early day. I was mad all day because of you being mad at me. I am finally getting over myself.


I have been puzzled all day about why you got so mad when I did things out of order. It finally dawned on me that it had nothing to do with breakfast, but that it was a good illustration of what I do all the time. Not paying attention, not reading fully, not listening fully, etc. and so that’s when I finally calmed down. Once I really got to thinking about things, I realized just why you were mad and why you were SO mad.

Concerns with Recommendations:

I am concerned with my continuing to disappoint you. I don’t mean to and I don’t mean to piss you off. But it goes back to paying attention more than anything and following through. So like we talked about, there is no magic formula for dealing with things or to be a better person/husband/father. It’s just DOING it. So that is what I am going to do. I started already with the kids today. I made sure they were up and then while they were waiting to go into work, “J” was playing meme tag with me and it was pretty funny I thought. It was just playing back and forth and it was nice.

Wishes, Hopes and Dreams:

I hope that you wake up with your back not hurting and not feeling sick! It has been waaaaaay too long since you woke up feeling well. I have a little while until you wake up, so I am going to finish putting my uniform together and then doing my dishes. I am going to have things finished before you wake up. I love you and I hope you had sweet dreams. Love me
