20 May 2007, Why didn't someone tell me it's already the 20th of the month, I better get busy packing! Actually, I'm doing.......ok....with my packing......I think. For some reason, people keep coming by and making the comment that they thought they were behind in packing till they saw my room. How should I take that?
The day has been good and I did make it to the gym today. LTC Y still wants us in the office to assist with any questions, training and such for the new Battalion that has come in to replace us. This is good to some degree, but it also puts more reliance on us instead of them making decisions for themselves. Now, I don't have a problem with going in the office. I am there every morning at 0630 and stay for several hours, then take off for a couple of hours, then return to the office for a couple more hours to see how they are doing. This gives them the opportunity to work out some issues, make notes, formulate questions and then I can work with them in solving the issues at hand. Plus it keeps me busy.
I haven't heard any more on my school yet, but at last word, it was back on. With the school in place my end date on the counter is I am always amused at people in the military that act "surprised" when something changes. I'm surprised when it doesn't.
Well, let me see if I can tackle something in my room. Be safe and have a great day.

Actually, I'm laughing about your packing dilemma because I remember that photo you posted of your quarters. Yo, Dub - get your butt in gear and get that stuff sorted, thrown out, or shipped home!

Actually he does have to worry about how much he brings and the size of each package. The military has a box when you manifest and your carry on bag has to fit into this box or it does not go on the plane. I am sure SGT Dub might have found a way around this, due to the number of years he has had trying to figure ways around these things. Stay safe and come home soon Dub.
