Happy Friday Friends!
We have almost successfully completed three weeks of this deployment - yay! It was a little stressful there in the beginning, but things have calmed down and Lucy and I are doing just fine. Although I do talk to Lucy like she is a person ... that's normal right? We've been busy and we've got a fun weekend planned as well! We are going out in Yokohama tomorrow night and on a tour to the Yunessun Hot Springs in Hakone on Saturday! I've also completed half of my deployment goals (which I have yet to blog about, whoops) and I'm also doing pretty well with my Weekly Intentions for this week! I love my lists :)
J. has been busy too - most days they fly twice a day and if he's not flying, he's standing duty. I don't typically get an email from him until around 1:30 or 2:00 a.m.! I'm glad they are busy because I think it helps the time pass more quickly for them as well, but it would be nice for him to have a break! However, I don't think they will be getting one any time soon - I read recently that the George Washington conducts more daily, flight sorties and recoveries than any other aircraft carrier in the fleet and has fewer no-fly days!
The U.S.S. George Washington has a Facebook page that it updates periodically with pictures from around the boat. They have been showing our Growlers a lot of love lately:
J. and Scratchy landing on the USS George Washington for the first time
J. and Scratchy coming in to land ... what I love most about this picture is how perfect the shadow looks on the deck
Looks like nasty weather
I love how this shows how the jets are stored on the deck
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
See you Monday!
