Operation Iraqi Freedom

My Time

Wednesday, November 24, 2004

Hey everyone. Sorry it took me so long, you know how it goes. Anyway, as you all know tomorrow is Turkey Day. I won’t be there physically, but know that I’ll be indulging myself in enough food to hold me over until Christmas in spirit.

They started the softball season up again just in time for it to be over. We only had two games left and one was cancelled because the team we were supposed to play is on a convoy…how many times will you ever hear that in a lifetime? But we did win our final game, and I don’t mean by a little bit, I’m talking about a good old fashion butt whooping. It was nice to win one.

Things here are pretty normal. Not many attacks, which is always good. We did have an alarm a couple days ago in the middle of the night, but to be honest with you, if they hadn’t knocked on my door, I would have never known.

The one thing that is new here is how unbelievably cold it’s getting. It’s ridiculous. Granted it’s not as cold here as it is in the states, but it was 120 here a month ago so I’m in a little bit of culture shock…I think we all are. Plus there is almost no heat here, all air conditioners, so we freeze wherever we go. Luckily we have it in our trailers, so there’s a safe haven there for us.

Well, I guess that’s it. I thank you all for your support and prayers, and don’t be sad that I’m not at home this Christmas season, because I’ll be back soon and we can forget this whole year. Love you guys. Peace
