Journal 080809_080909

So, we have had some casualties within Task Force Spartan that have prevented me from getting on the internet. Whenever a soldier falls, the leadership imposes a "blackout" on all outgoing communications until the famil(ies) are notified. Sometimes that takes a while and sometimes there are more than one over several days.

That said, I will try to do better at keeping the blog going.

Lora Call: She waited up for me to call (around 9:30 her time) Tough day for her. She had people coming and going and got nothing done.

Breakfast: Ham, cheddar, onion omelet, biscuit w sausage gravy, fruit cocktail, 2 x GJ (Sundays are my "blow-out" for breakfast day.)

Chapel Service: Brent Sanders gave message: Do we need a mountaintop experience to be close to God? No, we don’t. We need to be in his will to be close to him, no matter where we are physically.

Lunch: Tuna Salad wrap w lettuce, onion, tomato, relish, olives, fruit salad, V-8, OJ

Walked w Rich Gonzalez to Haji mart. He wanted some iPod speakers. Then went to Oasis and walked Melody to Provost marshall office so she could make a statement about her stolen iPod.

Supper: taco salad, 2 x V-8

Finally, thank you to my dear mother and aunt who are concerned about my eating habits. Aunt Linda, you will be happy to know that I am down to a 2 x 6 ounce V-8 habit a day (gotta watch that sodium!) and Mom, i have lost 30 pounds since I arrived in country July 1, so I am not eating "a lot."
