I feel like I'm back in college. I get up, go eat as much food as a want at the DEFAC (chow hall), go to work, eat some more, work out, work some more, watch an episode of The Office, come back to my dorm-like trailor, Skype my wife, and go to bed. Not a bad life, actually. In fact, my roommate is playing his xbox as I type. And, I'm banned from drinking alcohol here, too! I guess I didn't have to walk down the street in 110 degree weather with a gun when I was in college, though.
Obviously, I made it safely to Bagdad and the IZ (international zone). I'm getting into a routine and getting settled in...although, it looks like they are moving my office to a different FOB (forward operating base) in the next few weeks. Despite being separated from Kelly (and Wrigs), I'm enjoying my deployed life. Tonight there is a dust storm and it literally tastes like sand everywhere. It's like a dense fog outside...sand was caked to my glasses on my walk home.
I'll keep everyone posted here on any updates...of course, I can't share too much on the blog. Sorry. Thanks again for your prayers...til next time.
