First and foremost....

I am okay.

Tuesday night I was in a car accident. The car is pretty banged up but I am perfectly fine minus a bit of soreness. I am still waiting to find out if my car can be repaired or if has to totaled. Should get that info later today...

Because of the accident, I was able to talk to BJ. I initially called LtJG Rodriguez (his recruiter) and he was able to contact a friend of his that is stationed at Newport and works with the ODS. BJ was able to call me back within 15 minutes! Talk about efficiency! It was a quick call and we really talked about the accident and the car. We made arrangements for BJ to get a POA (power of attorney) so that I can get a new car if need be. We have not made that decision fully yet but figured better to be prepared. I also got an email address for him while he is at ODS. (If anyone wants that just let me know.) I fully expected that the phone call would be last until next weekend.

At 10 pm last night, BJ called me again. He said his class lead officer had gotten him permission to call me and see how I was doing. We got to talk for about 15-20 minutes. And this phone call was more about how I was doing and I got to talk to him about what he has been doing. He said that Tuesday morning the drill instructors woke everyone up at 3:30 am and had them doing PT in the hallways. He said he was beat tired from the long day. Other than being tired, he is doing great. He passed the swim test yesterday...first time. This means he won't have to take it again and will probably even "tutor" those that are struggling with it. The class takes their first PRT (physical readiness test) today...he is hoping to do well.

Like I said he is doing well and is mainly just tired....he was never a morning person! I guess he might be now.
