In Gear

Ok so if you drill with me or work with me you know that I’ve been sick. If you arn’t one of those people then you must be a friend or relative that I’ve gone wayward from in the communications department. For that I apologize. But you know how the girl friend, work, drill combo can put a hurt on the time management abilities. I’m trying to find time to fit every one in. Really! So if you’re one of those people that I am failing terribly please contact me and keep trying. I really do want to talk to you. E-mail seems to be the best way to get a hold of me. That or myspace/facebook. I suck at the phone thing for the most part.

So I was so sick last week that I didn’t make it to work Thursday or Friday but I absolutely had to drag my butt out of bed to go to drill. I fear the fedral government a little more than I fear my employer. I’m not sure if this a good or bad thing to have an attitude like that about. Regardless drill ended up being a mixed blessing. And the following is the good and bad.

First the good. I found out that my new unit is made up of a bunch of people a lot less grumpy than my previous unit. To people like Rony this doesn’t include you but in general the old unit was not the friendliest feeling place. Every one in the new unit constantly has a smile on their face and they seem to enjoy what they do. Very laid back. I also found out that the new unit is a step up the command structure. We seem to be command and control for all the rest of the Iowa Reserve units. Pretty sweet! This means we have funds to do cool things like take AT(active trianing), my two weeks a year, in realy cool places. For the sake of Op. Sec. I wont be letting slip where. If you really must know and you are a personal friend then feel free to ask and I’ll probably tell you because I’m really excited about it! And finally we have a chaplain who runs around Iowa so I’ll be getting to travel quite a bit for drill. There is a lot more cool stuff this new unit is getting me in to and I’d love to share it but I have kind of a limited amount of time to write.

The down side to this past drill was that I felt terrible on Saturday and got some sleep Sat. night. Then sunday with PT etc. had me feeling good but was long enough that the evil festering cold that I have just wasn’t going to give up. So alas I ended up to sick to make it to work yesterday. I’m still not over this cold quite yet but I managed to make it in today and not appear to be totally dead and gone.

The last thing I wanted to do was make mention that I have some items up for sale on ebay. I’ve got to much stuff and just need to clear it out and hopefully make back a buck or two in the process. If you’re interested and live in the area just bid away and we can work out the shipping cost on the back end. Click the image to be taken to the auction!
