Long Week

My posting is becoming less frequent, and I feel badly about that. Still, it's been a looooong week. I spent most of it "in the field," which should say about enough on that subject, really. For those, however, who wish for further clarification, let me explain:

Ruck march... 80-some pound combat load. 20-odd pound body armor. 7-pound M-16. Convoy exercises. Simulated firefights. 20+ hour workdays.

'Nuff said? Good. I thought so. Also, my Internet shit out. The person I was scamming wireless from must have moved. Oh well. Sucks to be me.

Upside, though? I just booked a flight home. Going to be returning to the States for a few weeks later this month. Get to see my family for a time before I ship out for Iraq. This makes me happy, but there's too much heavy stuff there to cover in this post. I promise I'll have something a little more substantive for hungry readers over the next few days. Meanwhile, keep hope alive. I'll catch y'all bitches at tha crossroads. For rill.

i'm glad you're getting to head home for awhile. my brother is headed back in about 12 days - in theory.
then he's either headed back to Guam or back to Iraq (shhhhhh, don't tell dad)
anyway, have a great trip!

Go soak in a hot bath. Vegetate. We'll be around when you've re-established speaking terms with your body.

Glad you're getting time to come home and visit, too. Say hi to the lakes for me.

Good... block leave is fun fun. My hubby went back August 5. It's only for 4 more months, but it feels like he's been gone a year already. It's harder to say goodbye the second time. Lonely nights, and TV dinners are all that awaits me. Well, have fun being out of the field.
