06 November 2006, Blogging is still hard work. Mrs. Dub wants me to tell about my day to day activities. Here in lies the problem. She also doesn't want me outside the wire. This just leaves me working in the office, right now from 0530 to typically 1900-2000 hrs each night(7pm -8pm). Now granted, it's not strenuous or anything. It's mainly time consuming. Then there's the fact that my job requires me to keep many things to myself, for if I shared them, government men in black suits and sunglasses would be knocking on your door, this was one of the reasons I had to leave the country....I mean I was deployed with the Army. So that doesn't leave much for me to say other than what I ate at each meal, which, we are at 4 days in a row for chili for breakfast. I had these kinds of fits back home. I finally had a lunch outside my office today, which was the first meal I haven't eaten at my desk in about 5 days. I haven't been to the gym in two days. I still have one more meeting tonight, NCODP, which is just Non-Commissioned Officer training. It's designed to help me be a better leader of troops. One day they will give me troops to lead.
While my LT has been away on leave, I have taken over his office. Each day I change something else in it. Last night, I brought in a saw and a drill. hehehhahhhwhawhaaa. Yes, Power tools are fun for everyone. I even still have all ten digits on my hands. When we get everyone back I want to start on my room again. I've gain so much stuff in there now that it's time to reconstruct a little. I don't believe I have shared with you the fact that I had two tough boxes stolen while in transit from Pakistan to here. I had to do some reports to file claims for it, but I don't really know where I would have put them with the way my room is set up now. (but that's only a small consolation compared to what I'm missing.)
We are having another official weigh-in right after Thanksgiving. Hmmm, wonder who's idea that was. Anyway, I better get back on track with my workout, I'm shooting for making the tape and not having to suffer any consequences afterwards. There's no way I would make the weight requirement because the Army thinks I need to loose 60 more pounds, which I would definitely need one of those Hollywood trainers and nutritionists working with me full time for about 6 months, and that won't be happening. However, I am shooting for loosing 30-40 more pounds on my own and hopefully doing while I'm here.
Be safe and have a good day.

You managed to be gone for your daughter's BIG "13" and thanks for leaving me to deal with it. You think you've got it bad over there sitting behind a desk eating chili? Just imagine having nine 13 year olds in a limosine after consuming numerous soft drinks, a big meal AND desserts!!!! It's a good thing it was sound proof, because otherwise the police would have been called out. You better stop eating all that chili and get your rear end to the gym!!! Stay safe and keep us posted on your activities.

Hi Sarge
Same Army, different day. In the 60's they were always checking our weight but that is not a bad as having to stand in line with a cup in your hand, and pee in it while some one was watching, oh well, all in a days work. The annual PT test always killed me, a fat old sarge having to run a mile in a not enough minutes, and pull ups, they always sucked. Same Army, different day.

Be safe my friend, I agree with the Mrs, inside the wire if you can.
