Providence: Girl Time to the Rescue!
Providence has stepped in to intervene between me and my pain. There is another female officer in my "pod" (the city block-plus of trailers I'm in, of which there are over 30 on base), who I occasionally see in the latrine trailer. Her name is Teresa, and she's about the same age as me, intelligent, sensitive, observant and single. ...= hopefully we have enough in common to enjoy each other's company while gaining that rare "girl time" I need so badly.
So I spent the last post on my rant... then a few hours chasing down policy and procedure issues for my job... then to the post exchange (PX), the little store on base for supplies hygiene music over-priced dvds and footwear. Teresa was there. I haven't seen her in about a week and a half, and she was there! She's coming over tonight for an hour or so... just chatting over coffee. I AM SO EXCITED! If our plan actually takes place, I'm sure I'll post more about it, but isn't this great? I needed this merciful break.
