This past week, Clayton was on the range, qualifying for a new score with his rifle.  Since this range is in a secluded area with its own barracks, Clayton was gone the whole week.  This means that I got to spend a whole week alone with my Merlin.  The two of us had a very productive week.

Some days I got up and cleaned a room from top to bottom.  One day, I used our new label maker to label things in the house.  One night, Merlin got a bath, because everyone loves a nice, clean puppy.  I was glad Merlin wasn't smelly, but he didn't really like getting wet.  When we cleaned the living room, we found Merlin's tennis ball under the television.  Needless to say, he was very excited to find this toy.  

While Merlin and I were folding laundry and cleaning the house, Clayton was on the range, shooting all during a very rainy week.  Somehow, though, he came out with the best score he has ever gotten on the range.  I'm very proud of how well he did this time.  

My job is starting to get very busy indeed.  We're gearing up for the Department of Defense (DOD) Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) Summer Reading Program (SRP) 2013.  The theme this year is "Have Book, Will Travel."  The activities we have planned are super cute, and the prizes are pretty decent.  I'm sure the kids are going to have a great time.  Also, I'm starting to create some adult programs on my own.  Once the SRP is over, my coworkers and I are hoping we might be able to implement one or two.  The best case scenario would be to launch one or more new programs and have them be massive successes on this base.  The worst case scenario is that I'll have a binder full of new programs I can take with me to my next library, and that's still a good thing.
