Recently, I have been neglecting this blog, not on purpose, there is just not creative juices working. So for that I do apologize.
A lot has been going on within the Unverzagt household; from tons of people in front of my house in the early morning hours (0700) to working on a water pipe to having tons of laundry (which I should mention the only reason there is a lot is because I hold off cleaning the shirts because we both have a ton of them and not enough bottoms so yeah, when I finally running out of shirts to wear I knew it was time to put then in the respected laundry baskets….one day I should explain my method). My husband is constantly gone at work, not his fault by the way, just how things are.
One of the coolest things that has happened though, which today I announce; I began to volunteer at the FFS here at the NWS Charleston Base. Some of you might be asking what FFS is, do not worry I will explain.
FFS is the short speak for Fleet and Family Services or Support (Depending on who you speak to). This organization is for Navy Families whether they are active, reserves, or retired it is for them and give them somewhere to get help as in financial, newly married, transition from active to civilian, or moving to another base and among other things. I rarely went over towards the FFS mainly because the Library, Big NEX, and the direction of the Commissary. I know it is a lame excuse put truly that is excuse I can have.
Anyways, last week I went to FFS for the first time since I first went there with my husband. I had two good reasons to going there. First, there was a Military Spouse Appreciation Day event there and thought what better way to meet people, especially Military spouses, but second, I wanted to sign up for one of the workshops they provide in which it helps with moving from base to base.
What I was not expecting was that I would join up to volunteer at FFS. I can say as of my first day (via today) I am liking this whole volunteer, I meet new people, most of them either retired military or spouses of retired military. I know I will meet even more people through this.
This morning I did not know what to expect, but I liked what I did do, which was participate in a workshop on making resumes through the Federal Government. I am not looking into finding a job, but it is awesome to look and figure out how one could look for a job. I do know I need a more professional email than what I use. LOL, another email account will be created probably shortly.
I liked working on putting together materials for another workshop or even letting them share my ideas of helping with the organization of the back room. I cannot wait to go in a volunteer for another few hours (or eight depending on how I am feeling, which is another awesome thing…working when I want).
I am going to end this, but hopefully there won’t be another dry spell in my blogging.
