Witches Brew

Oh, I have been so remiss! I haven't posted here in forever. I am sorry. I will pay penance by posting everyday for a week.

Alright, so I get back from BNCOC and promptly find my ASVAB failures and put them to studying. Only one is serious and passes the ASVAB at the MET site test (during the day, paper ASVAB instead of computerized). I took him for his physical and he swore in a week ago. Hooah. Gotta love hard work.

I also got a promotion of sorts after getting back from BNCOC. I am now a Squad Leader or Big Toe. I DO NOT understand the "Big Toe" concept. I am told I need to watch some movie and I will understand. All I know is I think of a big ole hairy male toe. yuck. I'll have to rent the movie and maybe I might have a clue? I don't know. I can't even remember the name of the movie. So with the "promotion" I now have a new partner. SFC Hooah Infantry is no longer my partner. SGT Pagent is.

SGT Pagent is a former beauty queen. Yes. That is true! SGT Pagent joined the Army after winning her title, did 4 years and got out. She had a long break in service (not as long as mine) and got into the National Guard. She is a sweet lady and very VERY meticulous. She loves details, lists and paperwork. I don't so we should be a good team. She is already making GREAT headway in her schools.

So, new promotion, new partner... what other surprises does life hold for me? Hmmmm. This past week or so we got the flu. I mean the hurling from hell flu. Quickly followed by the diarhea damnation. Then just as I think we are all about over it....its Halloween Night. Now what mother in her right mind takes sick kids trick-or-treating?? This mother. I just could NOT deny my kids at least a little Halloween fun, so I bundled them up, costumed, bleary eyed, pumped full of meds and begged candy off unsuspecting strangers. Only for 30 minutes and then back home. Now we all have chest colds. Heavy sigh.

Normally, as soon as I suspect any illness I make everyone drink colloidal silver. CS (colloidal silver) is a water laden with silver molecules. Hard to explain but bottom line, silver kills bad bacteria and viruses. Many people think it is quackery. I don't. Silver is antiseptic, has proven antibacterial properties and is antimicrobial. It is used in burn centers to cover the exposed tissue. So anyway I make it myself using a CS generator called a Silver Puppy. That is my witches brew.

For whatever reason... I forgot about the CS when we were all hurling our guts out and crying for mercy. I making a fresh batch of witches brew now. A little late...but......
