25 May 2007, some people thought I might want to climb the Ghar again, hahahha. I was more polite than that, but not much. I decided today would be the day I would sleep in. Yep, I set my alarm for 0650. I was so excited last night going to bed. Sleep in by anywhere from an extra 45 minutes to an hour. Yippee. Then I wake at 0530 and stay awake, finally getting up at 0550. That stinks! Oh well, they call this war and everyone knows war is hell.
Today was spent finishing the LOE's for my Air Force personnel, going to an formation this afternoon, discovering that the Army has decided it was in their best interest to write off that projector from last week, and then turning around and wanting to know where a computer was. Yep, it's possible now that they might want to charge me for a computer that I have no idea of it's whereabouts and never have. It's amazing that I'm able to keep up with everything I was originally signed for, but after "taking over" for the 1SG in an unofficial capacity, I'm now being haunted by things that were never under my control. I'll try not to rant on this anymore.....today.
I gave a helping hand to Chaplin W this afternoon, and looking into his room, I asked when he was going to get started packing......hahahahahha. He looked at me and said he was in better shape than I was in that department, then I took him to my room, he admitted he was behind me at this point. Just a little gloating on my part, I'm sorry.
Well, I've got two more meetings to go to at the moment.
Be safe and have a great day.

Wow I can't believe the part about the computer. figures. Hope they don't charge you what they got charged for it.

I too hate it when you know you got free time and you know how you would like to spend it and wala your awake. ERRRR annoying.

Nice you helped the Chaplin W is he shipping out the same time as you. I bet you did gloat. I couldn't help noticing how straight your shoes were in the pics below and your blanky was sure straight. Also this is just a observation of mine. In the movies they always show military people nice and tidy. I Guess that ole' wise tale isn't true. If it were I think you would be in the brig..
Take care dear friend Safe Passage to you. Callie Ann

Don't you just love being able to sleep in... I know I do even if it is only 45 mins or so...

I would have gloated too... and I looked at the pics from yesterday... looks better than it did but my goodness you have a lot of stuff... ;-) Hope Mrs. Dubb has a place to put all this stuff...

Take care, stay safe and have a good Memorial Day.

Thirty one more days... Pack, clean up and pack. Sorry you didn't get to sleep in. I do the same thing. Oh well, soon you'll be home and you won't get to sleep in then either...Ms. Dub has a million things for you to do.

Happy Memorial Day weekend. Stay safe (stay inside the wire) and God bless. :)

Awww... poor thing! I can feel your pain. It always happens to me when I´m allowed to sleep in - e.g. Luis is at my parents house. BING! I wake up at 5:30. *grrrr*

Like Callie Ann, I can´t belive the computer-part, either.

Congrats on your packing so far!
30 days, 15 hours and 17 minutes! WOO-HOO!

Have a great and safe day!

I haven't been on much lately. The finding of the soldier in the river has depressed me to no end as I was so hopeful for the missing 3.

Either way, I wanted to wish you and yours a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.

As always, thank you for your service Sgt!

I hate it when I wake up too early and can't get back to sleep as I value every single minute I can stay in bed and be a slug!

Glad to hear you could tell someone else that they were further behind than you with the packing! I can only imagine what HIS room looks like!

Have a safe one, Sarge!

MrsDub said...

So . . . your not the last to pack?
Good health on your final days, Sgt.

By the way, your shirts sure arrive FAST. Didn't think my wife and I would receive them for a while yet but am very, happy We'll be able to wear them on Memorial Day!

Maybe you could have a contest among your readers. It could be "Come Up With The Best Story of The Missing Computer." The winner get's their story put on the report- and the Army gets an explanation...of sorts... =)
