I finally got out of Kuwait!! I had roll call at 0530 this morning and then the flight left at 0930. I finally got back to my room about 1230 after having to wait a bit for transportation. Then I headed up to the band hall to let them know I was back. Those that saw me sure were glad to see me back. I got filled in on a few things and permission to have the afternoon off to shower, unpack, etc. I went to the chow hall for lunch and then by the arms room to get my weapon back. Boy did it sure feel heavy when I first put it on. Then I headed home and got unpacked and 2 bags of laundry ready to turn in (didn’t turn it in before I left), got my computer up and a new month of internet paid for, etc. Then I got a much-needed shower and was finally able to take off the clothes that I had been wearing since Sunday morning. Yes, I know – EEEEEWWWWWWWW. Boy did that shower and hair washing feel good. I chatted with Mom and Dad and Ryan at various times, and I stitched for about 45 minutes. Then I headed to meet my friend TD for dinner and it was nice seeing him again. Then it was back home for a little bit and then off to Country Night. All of my friends there were sure glad to see me! I danced most every song tonight – I think there are even fewer females than usual. It was a lot of fun, but I think I’m going to be sore tomorrow. We’ll find out I guess.
Today’s high: 68
