About Me

My photo
I am a Dad to two beautiful girls and a husband to a very gorgeous wife. I am very proud of my family and the way they give me so much support. I guess I do not need to win the lottery, I have already won.

Well I had the chance to sleep in today but as you know even when you are gone life goes on. I had to get up early this morning to go get new tires for the van. I was the first in line at 6am at wal-mart and I was still there for 2.5 hours. I am very thankful though for my girls. While I was gone my girls stepped up and got the yard done for me while I was gone, they both worked together to keep it up so I did not have to when I got back. I am very thankful for my girls it makes me realize more and more how responsible they are becoming and how much they are growing up. I am very thankful for a great family.

Thanks girls for everything.

Well today was the last day of our annual training. We had to go into work today and we worked until about 1pm and then we were done. I am sure glad to be home and sleep in my own bed. The mattresses we slept on were to soft and now my back is sore. I got to know a lot of the guys better on the trip, you tend to when you are in the same barracks with them for 3 weeks. I guess I will know how a year will feel once we get deployed. It was a fun trip and it always seems that when things go wrong you tend to forget them when you get home. I just remember all the fun we had too and the jokes we played on each other. Well when all is said and done I am with a great bunch of guys and gals and that I am proud and glad to be able to go over seas with them. Well again I am glad to be home and look forward to seeing you all on sunday or whenever. See you all soon.

Well it has been 3 weeks since I wrote last because I went to Mississippi for training. It was very hot down there but I knew that already and I was somewhat prepared, but you can't get totally prepared. We had some good traing but we had some down time too where we could have been doing some good training. Once we got out there and we started doing some missions it got exciting. We went to Camp Shelby and we stayed in barracks that were probably older than me and I am thankful that we had air conditioning in them. The bad part was when you had to go to the bathroom it was in another building. That is a long walk in the middle of the night when you really had to go. We managed though. I am so glad to be home and just get a great hug from my family especially my wife. That hug felt great. Well I am home safely and will write more at another time. Have a great day.
