Coed Naked Peacekeeping

14 October 2002

Monday Night

I’m watching “My Cousin Vinny” — just finished “Ever After.”  I’m slowly turning into a lump.  I need to snap out of this slump—maybe tomorrow.  Way too much alone time.

I’m learning my job—it’s going to be completely up to me to stay busy and be productive because this job doesn’t amount to much.  I’m trusting that God has a plan and has put me here for a reason.  I’ll just go with the flow and make the best of it.

Sipping on a delicious cup of tea, thanks to India (my friend, not the country).  She sent me a big bag of Earl Grey, a jar of vanilla sugar and a single cup filter.  So nice!

Time for sleep.

ps. The thought of the day is: Adding up your blessings will multiply your joy.

My blessings:  My sweet husband, my family, health, kindness of strangers, my puppy, friends, our home, freedom, forgiveness…

Payday—one down eleven to go!

I sent Shane and orchid today.  I want him to know how much I appreciate everything he’s doing while I’m away.  Getting up every morning with Zoe to walk her, chase her around the love-seat a few times before work, come home every day to make his dinner alone, pay the bills and keep the house up and still find time to miss me and write me—filling me up with so much love I could burst.

Good things that happened to me today:

  1. Brian shared his picture of his 3 daughters with me at lunch today—he’s been here at least 6 months and carries it with him in his ID card holder for a smile.
  2. Gave my first CIB (current intel brief) and was told it was the best they’d seen yet.
  3. Took a ride in a SIMI Susi (??) “Duck” — armored ambulance!  The Danish guys took us for a 30 minute ride around base—awesome.
  4. The clouds went away and NO RAIN!
  5. I got a nice email from mom about her trip to Dolores (got an email from Shane too, swoon)

Funny Saying So Far:

“It’s called grits, Ma’am”

“M.T.W.”  Mugs, Thugs and Wacko’s  (Army term)
