500th visit!

Thanks everyone, for having only been up for about 2 weeks, 500 hits is pretty amazing.  🙂

Anyways, I’ve only got 1 week left at work and 1 month left before I ship out, with lots to do still.  Between the sinking feeling I get about leaving my family, the uncertainty of the presidential election, the increasing violence and turmoil in Asia, and the unstable economy, it can be difficult to relax and enjoy my time home.

But, I’m doing my best and I’m really looking forward to having some fun and spending quality time with my wife and family.  I admit that I am excited about the deployment and the thought of adventure.  Not only that but the sooner I leave, the sooner I get through training, get “in-country,” and get home.  Friends of mine who have gone over have told me the only thing that sucks more than a delpoyment is waiting to get deployed, and I can easily see that now.  I cant wait to go and get back so that I can think about MY future: my wife, finding a house, working on my career, maybe kids eventually…  Those things are all intangible right now and impossible to think about seriously because I can’t get past the deployment.

Wow, I didnt really plan on a big post, but I just started rambling.  Sorry! 🙂

Have a great night everyone…
