Counting the days...

Well HELLO! It's been a few days since I last wrote anything on here...sorry. Thank you to all of those who continue to show your support for my brother and I by stopping by to check out what we've been up to and what's going on in the world of two Soldier deployed over seas. THANKS! Also, thank you to all of those who have sent packages, cards, and letters! We greatly appreciate it all!!

Counting the days...yep. That's about the highlight of my days. Knowing that I'm another day closer to getting the heck out of here! OH the things that I have to look forward to when I get home....and the things I don't have to look forward to...ah we won't think about that stuff for now. I'm not REALLY excited about going home yet...it's close, but not that close. I know some of my group is really getting excited, but I don't think it will hit me until we have about a week or so left. It doesn't seem like I've been here that long, but I guess I have. Unfortunately, I have some friends that are leaving pretty soon. I'm gonna miss those guys and gals. I can't say that for everyone over here I have contact with...but the folks up here that are going home I'll miss 'em.

My brain took another dump....not much has been going on lately....we're getting ready for CHRISTMAS. YEAH! If you haven't noticed, the approaching holiday is CHRISTMAS, not xmas. I can't stand it when people degrade Christmas by spelling it xmas. It's not a celebration of x's birthday...it's a celebration of Christ's birthday. I hope that you'll keep that in mind the next time you have to spell it or you see someone else spell it. SO we're getting ready for Christmas, we have the tree up, there are more and more presents under the tree, and we're generally just getting ready for a good day. I'm sure it will be just fine...considering where we are. We may not be with our families, but we'll have some good friends close by and it's more about Christ's birthday than anything. I'll get some pictures up on here as soon as i can remember to take my camera to work and take a pic of the tree and stuff....

Well...I was thinking that I'd have more to say but I just can't think of anything right now...

Thank you all once again, and I'll write again soon!

I am asking everyone to pray for John as he undergoes surgery on Dec 23. They were trying to get him to the USA to have it done but once in Germany they realized how bad he was and will be doing surgery right away on his gall bladder which is very bad. It was not heart burn he was suffering from for the past few months.
Thank you
