Life doesn’t get any better.
Nothing like enjoying a quiet day with my loved one. It’s moments like this I missed while deployed. The bazaars in Afghanistan or Iraq can’t compare to the arts and crafts festival in Old Town, Alexandria.
The quietness of my home surpasses the quietness in my containerized housing units in Kabul or Ali Base. My home is cozy and comfortable…not sterile and drab like the CHUs. (A CHU, however, greatly surpasses a tent.)
Though there’s been a threat of rain all day, the weather was wonderful today. I don’t miss the 130-plus temperatures of Ur.
I’m home with my wife. I have plenty of books. What could be better?
