"It's never too late to start your life over."

You know how it is, you're just minding your business, doing whatever it is you are doing and all the sudden, something catches your attention, be it a car, or a woman, or an airplane at 30,000 feet and BANG, you aren't doing what you were doing before, you are distracted by said shiny thing. Yea, welcome to my life.
"I'm not stupid, I'm easily distracted."

Under 30 Days

Yep, that's right.  I have less than 30 days remaining here in Iraq.  I can't tell you exactly how many, but it is under 30.  I am very excited.

We are packing up.  Printers that don't really need to be used every day are going into a connex.  Rooms are being packed up and things are getting shipped home.  I have a room full of boxes that I need to take to the post office.  One nice thing about living in Germany is that to ship a box home to myself it costs nothing at all.  No, really.  It stays in the Army system so there is not charge, unless, of course, you want insurance on that item.  Then, not only do you have to pay the insurance but you also have to pay shipping.  I have camera equipment and the like that I am sending insured mail.  Ok, so I had to pay for a few packages, not too shabby considering that I am sending 5-6 large foot lockers home for free.

So, anyhow, you should all think warm thoughts for me, and us.  We will be home soon, lets home it all goes without a hitch.
