Later on today, I’ll be going up to the VA. Not for cancer treatments (yet), but to fill out a form to see if I can get my Naval Discharge status changed. It wasn’t a strictly Honroable Discharge (though it was not Dishonorable), and I need to see if I can get it changed so I can apply for the Post 9/11 GI Bill education fund. I would much rather go to school with this, instead of a Pell Grant (if I can even get one), or with a loan (which I may have to take out if I can’t get the Grant). I’ll also be doing research on other Grants and funds I can apply for in the coming month as I have energy and time (depending upon how wiped I am after chemotherapy).
After this application is ready to be mailed, I’ll probably be returning home just long enough to prepare for square dancing. Tuesdays are our lesson night, and lessons just started a couple weeks ago. This may be the last time I dance for a few months, so I’d really like to make it, even though my ride hasn’t called me back to say he’ll be picking me up . . .
