12 Monday 2007, Happy Funday everyone! Well, things still aren't slowing down for me yet, but what else was I going to do? The weather is hovering between snow and rain. It stop for now, so we will see what tomorrow brings.
You know how when you notice the office phone hasn't rung all morning and you say out loud, "The phone hasn't rung all day", then it never stops ringing. Well, to avoid jinxing us here, I'm not going to tell you it's been fairly quiet for a while now.
We are getting to the point where we have to start packing to go back home. Don't get excited, what we are sending back right now is going by slow, slow boat and usually takes a couple of months to get there. My Air Force people had a very confused look on their face when we explained it to them too. Of course, the Air Force ships everything by plane, so it goes with you. My date back home may differ than the Army's expectations, I never plan shorter than 12 months in theater. If the Army wants to send us back home earlier, that's ok, but making us stay longer is never a good thing. Don't worry, I haven't heard anything like that yet.
I really wish I had more to report on around here, but remember, no news is good news. I hope everyone else is doing well too. Be safe and have a great day.
