January 2nd

What a start to the year. I love my job (today).  Jay came in to rent a movie, although that is really not the important part as Jay comes in at least once a week (sometimes a lot more) to rent some “classic” movie that was made before we were even born.  This week it was Stephen King’s “The Shinning” – crazy guy and wife try to kill each other in deserted hotel… blah, blah, blah.  The important part is that, Jay is Mike’s best friend and where I get most of my information from (he gives this valuable information away recklessly, not knowing how I feel about Mike).  Jay and I have lived on 3 of the same bases at the same time – this is practically unheard of so we decided that being friends was probably our destiny.  His parents are coming over to our place tonight to play cards.  Jay’s Dad has just gotten back from being deployed for 12 months and although he has all of his limbs and looks the same, my mother says that Jay’s Dad is not ‘coping’ well after seeing so much combat.   My Mom thinks that most people don’t ‘cope’ well with a variety of things – I don’t cope well with my annoying sister, she doesn’t cope well with my attitude, etc.  So, I take my Mom’s idea of not ‘coping’ well quite lightly but I do wonder what life would be like for us if my Dad was deployed again.  I avoid thoughts like this most of the time as it doesn’t help and only makes me crazy.
