This morning in my email I got word of some bad news. My ex sister-in law told me of the death of her brother-in-law, my former brother-in-law. My former nieces and nephews still call me aunt. They often remark on how they miss me. I miss them too. Its the only thing in the divorce that I regret putting behind me. My ex had two nice brothers. One died yesterday. He was the same age as my own brother. They had the same birthday too. Its just hard to believe that he is gone. May he rest in peace.
On to other news. Its hot here. Nothing I can't handle. I keep the shades drawn and windows closed for most of the day. Right now I have them open to get a cross breeze. I'll probably be shutting them in about half an hour before the sun hits my living room window making it a sauna. I realize that it could be much hotter than the 92 plus heat index of the last few days. Most folks don't realize that the village I live on on post does not have air conditioning. The newer villages come equipped with it in their housing but not my place.
Now as for rumors. This morning I was woken up by the phone. My bestie called me to find out if I knew anything about the rumor going around. I said I had not heard about it but would call my spouse to find out if he knew. He hadn't heard anything about it either. So at this point we can neither confirm nor deny that there has been a shooting on the north fort of this installation. The rumor is that some guy has an M-16 on north fort, which is now supposedly under lock down (yeah I'd like to see them try to lock down the whole north fort section and its training areas and lakes), and is running around shooting people. I turned on the news stations, I searched for it online...NOTHING. So again I cannot confirm nor deny the rumor. It is just a rumor at this point.
With that being said I left my house unlocked and walked to the mail box and back. Hey if someone is going to take me out they'll take me out. Most likely I'll die of a heart attack before I'll die from a shooting. Remember a shooting has better chances of survival than an unattended heart attack.
AF might just be going away after 13 days. I have to be careful to whisper that little tid bit.
Yesterday I did more maintenance on ETSY. I set up my shop with type of payment, policy, and shipping restriction. Right now it will be domestic only. I also took 4-5 photos of everything I have on-hand that I'll be putting in my shop. Just a few items for now. I still have to go about making more things. I might just have it open by the 4th of Sept. I figure why waste time on putting it up on the first if every one is away from the internet enjoying the labor day weekend.
