4 days and counting....
Sorry I haven't been around here much in the last week, just getting ready to go. As of now, we're slated to leave on Tuesday and spend the night in Rota, Spain. Next day will be on to Al Assad (Qatar) and a C-130 hop North.
My to do list grew to two pages, then back to one. Still got a bunch to do. Trying to plan for a 2 year old running the house (he's 19 months now....will be 2 when I get back.....baby locks, more room, ect...), and the wife will be 8 months along. Just don't want her having to do anything but take care of him. We're not going to have the boy/girl results until the second week of December....gonna find out by e-mail I guess.
Getting a little nervous, but mostly because my son has REALLY become attached to daddy in the last few months. Mom keeps getting her feelings hurt because he clings to daddy more than mommy. Just worried at this stage in his development, that daddy leaving for 5 months is going to affect him somehow. I really hope not. Love that kid to death. Been doing the video thing, so he'll have tapes of me to watch. Really gonna miss my son.
Going to a base 50 miles North of Baghdad. So far, the guys over there are saying the mortars fall a few times a day, but on the other side of the base. A few have died, but not in our area. Flying has been interesting, and I'm looking forward to getting back to operating again.
So, a nice 4-day weekend, and I'm outta here.
one more ride.....and she gets covered up and drained....can't wait to get back and get my R6!!!!
