Operation Iraqi Freedom

My Time

Friday, August 06, 2004

Hello everybody. Things here are good. No new attacks. I went swimming today for the second time since I've been here. It's fun but they put A LOT of chlorine in there now because apparently they found E-coli in the pool a couple weeks ago...I know I know, how do you get E-coli in a pool? I don't know. It's one of those things I guess. Anyway, things seem to be going pretty steady. We're in our 6th month now and as of the 25th of August we'll be half way done. Now only being half way done is kind of depressing when you think about how long I've been here, but the second half will be much easier for two reasons. Number 1, we're already in a routine...A comfortable one. So no more tent living, long convoys, workless long days etc. And number 2, one of those months I'll be gone so that's awesome. We're only home for 2 weeks, but we're away from here for a total of 3 weeks, so that's almost an entire month that I won't be here. And two weeks of that will be having the best time of my life with my friends and family at home. So we all know those weeks are going to fly. Well, that's as optimistic I can get about being over here, it's starting to become a way of life now. So, I guess that's it. Thank you all for your support. God bless you and stay safe. Peace.
