End of Week One

One down, fourteen to go.

What I learned this week:

1) There’s a lot more going on in the war than I thought.

2) Smallpox immunization sucks. Bad.

3) If you slam three Fosters you can get a quick buzz for about 10 minutes.

4) “Alias” is a pretty cool show. Especially without the commercials.

5) They really do wear rags on their heads. Like Texans really do wear cowboy hat-shaped hardhats.

6) Advil works like a champ on joint pain.

7) Privacy, especially when working nights, is a good thing.

8) Tom Brady, apparently, is fallible.

9) “Shandalahar” means “thank you” in Arabic.

10) I really miss my family. About ten times worse than I thought.

Ok..I’m off to the doc now to have him check out my smallpox injection that has, according to the “experts” in the CAOC, apparently gone south. While I’m there I should have them examine my hip to make sure I won’t be in a wheelchair next week.

  1. Smallpox are pretty nasty. My husband had to get one last year before leaving. He would not even come home for the first two weeks b/c we have children. Some guy in his unit slept with his wife during this time and then they spread it to their 3 children. How sick is that!!
    It will get better, just hang it there. Atleast it is better than the alternative!
