15 June 2007, Happy Dance Friday! And a great day for dancing it is. I've been home now since Sunday. I'll go over the highlights for the last week.
Sunday, of course, we arrived here back in Oklahoma City, but 45 minutes earlier than we were expected so most of the families hadn't arrived yet. This did give us time to find our bags and get them situated before the great reunions began. As I had now been up for the last 24 hours, we went to breakfast and then I crashed in bed for 3-4 hours.
Monday. I took it easy until we headed out to Cattlemen's for dinner. I had around 20 friends and families there and it was good to see everyone.
Tuesday. We took Miss Dub to her piano lessons and then headed to Durant in Southern Oklahoma. We were given a two day pass before we had to be back at the armory to finish turning in equipment and final paperwork. We stayed at our cousin's house, had dinner and then stopped off at the Choctaw Nation Casino. After an hour there, I walked out breaking even, though at one point I was ahead by $60. I also missed Wade and TC who were driving through OKC at some point that day.
Wednesday. I spent most of it at drill and then loaded up the family and came home.
Thursday. Just drove around OKC, looking at tractors and having lunch. I haven't started on any projects yet, but the plans are in motion.
Friday. I am the only one out of bed so far, but it's time to feed the horses. As soon as I locate my camera, I'll post some pictures from this week.
Be safe and have a great day.

I am glad you are home.
You need to change your about me bullet on the left since you are not in Afghanistan any more.
While you were in Colorado, I drove by Ft Carson. I waved at you, even though you did not see it. When do you start back at work? I sent Mrs Dub an email about the free tickets you can get to Sea World in San Antonio. It is a great vacation.

What a nice dull, normal week. I bet it was fantastic!

So glad to hear that things are returning to normal and will look forward to those pictures when you get a chance to put some up.

Don't forget to tell Miss Dub I need her Deviant Art name so that Amanda can go check out her stuff!

Welcome back. I laughed at the notion of you driving around looking at tractors - that sums it all up doesn't it?!! That you can in the first place. And that the ordinary is so precious.
