I have moved into my flat and it is ok. Even though it is furnished, I have had to pick up a few things. I really don’t like the beds and am thinking about buying one. If I do, I am going to pick something I like. That means that when I come home in August or September of next year for the book, I will be shipping it home as well. Doesn’t that sound lovely?
The job is boring. We go to a camp and deliver the mail, then sit there all day till the APO closes. It is good to bring the mail to the troops and to see their faces when they walk out with that one piece of mail that they have been waiting for. With all the communications we have these days; it still does not replace the hand written letter. I like seeing the soldiers get them, but sitting around camp all day sucks. Not to mention we only go north as far as Cedar. That is the boring part of Iraq. Nothing to get excited about. But I have run into several people that I had lost contact with that I worked with from KBR. Some of them ran convoys with me several times. It is cool to see them and hang out.
Mickey, my guy, and I are going diving the day after tomorrow, I think. I am going to get back into the music group I was in, when I was here with KBR. They meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month. So I may have a conflict this Wednesday if I go diving and one of the dives is a night dive. Don’t know if it will be yet or not. I have also found a Dojo that teaches Aikido and am looking at going there to get some self-defence. I have not checked that all out yet.
The book is going good. I got the cover design for the book the other day. I don’t know if that is how it is going to look in the end, but it is what they have come up with for now. The title is “Cindy in Iraq” with a subtitle of “A Civilian’s Year in the War Zone”. I think it is cool and I think ya’ll will like it.
Well, it is that time, time for bed over here on the beach. So I say my good nights to you all and hope to hear from ya’ll soon.
