It was nice to see my parents and the handful of people that I did see. I spent most of my time with my bestest friend Lindsay. It was FANTASTIC to see her again. She really is my bestest friend.

The main reason I went home for these nine days, was for my uncles wedding and for my brother's high school Military Ball.
The wedding was a Steampunk Superhero wedding.

Relatievely uneventuful week otherwise, my parents worked all week and my brother had school. It was comical going to his military ball. I was surrounded by 13-17 year olds all night and some people wanted to talk about my time in both that particular high school unit as well as my time downrange.
I refuse to fly home anymore, everytime I come back to Bragg, they always loose my luggage. Without fail, they lose my luggage. This time though, it wasn't much of a surprise since I barely made the flight. The connecting flight in Atlanta started boarding 10 minutes before my one from Tampa landed. Haha. My boyfriend was kind enough to come pick me up from the airport, and then take me back to the airport once my luggage came in. He is a sweetheart. XD
Since then I've been back to work. I had a mountain of paperwork to catch up on, that no one really handled while I was gone. I had Drivers Training this past week, getting liscenced to legally drive both the HMMWV and LMTV for my unit. It was terribly boring, and most of the time we didn;t have any A/C. I'm just glad that its over. I have a new 1SG in charge of my company, who was incredibly surprised that I was as organized as I was. He had some stuff he wanted to impliment that I was already doing, it made me laugh.
Sadly though, we found out my boyfriends Grandmother has stage 4 cancer. He drove to Ohio the weekend before this one to spend time with her and his family. She just started Chemo treatment, and I hope that it helps her. I feel bad for him.
Other then that, life is boring and hopefully getting back on track. Been kind of in a funk since all of this started and I found out about Zack's passing. Hopefully I will have more time to do more monster making here soon.
