My Time

Hey guys. Things here are not that bad. I think I'm getting used to it or something, because the heat, although hotter, doesn't seem to bother me much anymore, and the work, although harder, doesn't seem to bother me anymore. I wanted to throw a heads up that I just found out. It's kind of bad. I just found out that they are having troubles with the R&R program. There's a chance that not all of us are getting to come home for that two weeks. Now the bright side is that it SHOULDN'T mess with the lower enlisteds (i.e. me) and because I'm taking mine so late in the year, I SHOULDN'T be messed with. That's what I'm hoping for at least. So I thought I would throw that out but keep your hopes up. George received my CD with all the pictures so there should be some good ones of the convoy up now. Scary times, but we got through them OK. Now just have to finish up and come home. Well, nothing is really new, mail is coming in regularly and it's getting hotter and hotter and hotter. Other than that, pretty quiet. We have heard some controlled blasts from some explosives that EOD found on the camp that hadn't gone off, but we really haven't been attacked in a while. So quiet is good hopefully. Well, God bless you all and thank you for your support.

Hey guys. So Blogspot changed their format so I'm trying to get used to it, I know you don't see any difference but it's wierd to me. Anyway, things here are normal, we heard some impacts today but they are the first we've heard in a while. There were two and I don't know how far away they were because I never saw the smoke from them. Things are changing around the barracks. We got new wall lockers and stuff in so we all had to make our rooms uniform and stuff. We got away with it this long because of all the different stuff we had, but now that we all have the same stuff, the barracks look a lot neater and cleaner. It's OK I guess, doesn't bother me at all. I also got packages from my cousin Rachel and my grandma Sheila. Thanks guys. And thanks to everyone who helped put all that stuff in. I have gotten to watch the DVD yet of Easter dinner, but I'm going to tonight when I get back. That was an awesome idea. So I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for sending me letters and packages. You all are awesome. Thanks to my aunt Shannon, I've rediscovered my love for Oreo's. :) All the snacks you guys sent are awesome, so thanks. As for things around here, it's getting hot. Really hot. And mail is coming on a regular basis now, but it's coming in large large loades. We've been working really really hard and something's going to have to change because in this heat, it's not going to take long for us to get burned out. So we're working on a plan, but nothing's coming to mind. We'll come up with something though. Well, I'm going to jet for now. Not sure if that KBR rumor is true or not, but I use military internet so it doesn't matter for me. Alright, God bless, thanks for your support.
