It's hard for me to believe that I've not really checked my stats (which I have this sick obsession with, but also because its a static page that was light colored that would light up my face so my face wasn't blue when I was talking to Teh Bear on skype) since the 23rd.
That feels like SUCH A LONG TIME AGO. Is that bad?
What has happened since I posted a real blog on the 16/19th? Well, a lot actually, thanks for asking. :)
I am officially homeless, carless, and living out of several boxes and my suitcases (in a hotel). This is the first time since Teh Granny bought Teh Kaar that I've been carless, but the homeless and living out of suitcases is pretty much standard for me at this point in my life. Is that sad? Yeah, its the life of moving/PCS-ing every year..
I moved out of my flat. I sold my car to a local, which was at the time, a good idea, but in retrospect, NEVER sell your car to a local while overseas.. Customs NIGHTMARE, along with a rather convenient lack of understanding English from the buyer. I hit the single digit mark. I got most of the signatures on my check out sheet. I walk to base. I don't work. I turned in all my uniforms. I called Verizon and have cell service again. I started this thing where I don't have a sleep schedule, I just stay awake for as long as possible and nap so I can get back to a more east coast sleep schedule. So far, its just really jacked me up. But, the ultimate goal is to not spend several days sleeping through the day once I get back stateside... We'll see how this works out.
At home, preparations are being made for my arrival. Teh Dad is picking up my new vehicle on the 2nd (prepare yourselves for my new car porn post), because he's awesome. He did all the leg work for me, and every time I talk to him I tell him thank you, but I just don't feel like its enough to really convey how much all he has done means to me.

Here's to hoping and praying that the rotator doesn't get delayed and/or weather conditions in Norfolk stay good enough (cold is perfectly acceptable) that the plane can land.
Expect the lightness of posts to continue for at least the next 2-3 weeks, especially with the 30 day challenge being over. With the lack of sleeping and the PCS-ing brain thing I have going on, I'm struggling to function like a normal individual and that means a several decline in my ability to process words... Teh Bear can attest to that.
But fret not, Gentle Reader... I will return... with lots of exclamations about 'Merica and cold and the weirdness that is being stateside for good. Yes, that was foreshadowing. You're welcome for that hint, it was free.
