Sorry for being so quiet this week. Been a tough, tough week.
I had high hopes for the weeks, actually. Sunday was a nice pre-4th BBQ, complete with a pig roast (we can talk about the appropriateness of a pig roast in Iraq later, ok?). The 4th was a nice day — I covered down on the office with a few others while my boss and a lot of the Joes headed out for some festivities with our Iraqi counterparts (and no, there wasn’t a second pig roast).
And then the week just got rough, with the low point for me being an attack that took the lives of two Soldiers from 116 Cav.
Like I said — tough week.
It’s Sunday, and that means Skype with the family, and some extra sleep (every little bit counts) and other important things – like dropping off dirty laundry.
Though silent here, I’ve had some great conversations this week with some of you — Super Secret Projects 5 and 6, and the bundles in Afghanistan. It’s good to hear that people are having fun rounding up bling. Who knew huh?
So, thanks. And here’s to a better week.
