Another beautiful day
Honestly, the days here are getting better and better all the time. I don't know if it's because we're so close to coming home or just merely springtime finally showing its face around this place. Either way, morale around here is skyrocketing and I know that mine is beyond the bar now.
I had a good day again. I only cried a few times from missing my wife and my goofy NCO helped get me back motivated again, reminding me that I'm one day closer to seeing her.
I spent most of my day out in the connex yard cleaning out a connex that I adopted when B Company went downrange. It was beyond a mess. It took me about 3 hours to get the whole thing cleaned up and all I did was really just clean up the floor. There is so much crap in there its unimaginable. There is still quite a few boxes that I passed over and I have no idea what they hold.
My plans for tomorrow are to clean out another connex and do a quick inventory of all the things that I am signed for from B Company. I own a company's worth of equipment so I figure I should do my inventories like all commander's do (suppose to at least). We'll see how all that goes, though. Tomorrow might be the wrong day since we have a busy schedule planned for us. I can't go into details now because that would be violating major OPSEC, but tomorrow I'll give all the details and stories.
Right now I'm too tired to really post much more. I am definately spent. The paint I sprayed in the connex gave Phillip and me a bit of a buzz and that is not including the foofoo spray we dotted around the connex to eliminate the urine odor. Of course, afterwards we realized we were next to the waste treatment place. Good job, specialists.
Then there are the endless rolls of plastic sheeting I found along with enough weapons parts to build one very odd shaped and most likely nonfunctioning night vision / weapon / mop. The spray paint really got to us in there.
That's all for now I guess. It's about bed time for me so I'm going to go lay down and dream about the love of my life and count the number of days I have until I see her again.
Stay safe at home, everyone, and have fun.
God is good. All the time.
