This morning we went to our shift at the USO. We did the inventory for the Costco items. The USO eliminated a position at their downtown center. They did not make enough money from their fund-raising golf tournament to continue with it. They only have one other major fund-raising event – the Gala. They eliminated the position that coordinated both of those events. We were sorry to see Jill go. We liked working with her. The rest of the staff will pick up the responsibilities of the Gala. This means that the volunteers will be doing more of the minor tasks. We spent the rest of our shift looking up addresses for the invitees for the Gala. These names were major business leaders in the community. We started a spreadsheet that will be used for mailing invitations.
As we were leaving the USO, we mentioned to the Director, Ashley, that we were taking Agnes to JAG and the Family Abuse Team on Navy Base San Diego. Ashley’s husband is a Navy lawyer. She has also worked for the Navy and can quote Navy regulations regarding what Agnes is going through. Ashley suggested that we take her to the Family Justice Center. It is a one-stop-shop for women who have been abused. The Police Domestic Abuse Department is next door on the same floor of the building. There is a Military Liaison to help Navy wives. They have lawyers and counselors. It seemed like a good idea.
We drove to the Family Justice Center to check it out. There is a nice parking garage under the building. We were able to get our parking validated, so it was free. Parking is so expensive in downtown San Diego, that this option was great. We talked to the people at the desk and got the information that we needed. They told us that the Military Liaison would be in tomorrow.
We went to Panda Express for lunch. Sister Fanning took a nap when we got home. She is still struggling with her stomach.
We spent the rest of the day relaxing, working on computer work, and straightening the house.
We went to bed on time.
