working for the weekend

TGIS-i love the Army. I love having to come in on saturday morning because some West Point ring knocker decided it was safer than having soldiers drive all night on fridays before a four day weekend. I love that. Really.
Going down to fayetteville to see a buddy. And stay out of trouble. Funny how that is, trouble always seems to be close to home.
I am still exausted, mostly because I did not sleep in...thank you saturday battalion release formation. But I think I will get plenty of rest this weekend. Good thing too.
50 days until my ETS Physical.

Lovin' life (or at least the prospect of actually having one that doesn't involve owning property in the Tigris River valley)

Ahhh the blessings of technology

I have just recently figured out how to post using my new now I have absolutely no excuse for not posting.
This week has been a living hell. Three long months of planning went straight down the toilet, because a few key players didn't do their job. I have almost completely lost all of my motivation. The only encouraging thing that happened this week was that I realized I had mis-calculated the days until I come home from the army. 141 days remaining in my service to the country. 141 days of supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States. 141 days of waking up tired and coming home exhausted. 141 days. Start the chain @ 100 and tear a link off every day.

I'm tired, sad, lonely, and I want to come home.
