Ack. Just received an email from my Platoon Chief asking me to nail down the date for my return to work. I have officially just a little over 2 months before I go back. But I have some holidays to carry over so that will put me back around Christmas. I have been itching to go back forever and now that I'm getting close I am a bit nervous. I'll be rusty that's for sure but after a shift or two and a good housefire I'm sure the kinks will work themselves out. As strange as it sounds I miss the smell of axle grease and smoke.
Time to start thinking of weaning Maiya.... I know she's more than ready.... she ate half a steak yesterday. She's in the big leagues now.
