Tomorrow I am off to a winter conference with my fellow residents. It is a bit of a drive from here, and we're stocking our hotel room with plenty of party "must-haves". The conference involves a mountain, some snow (hopefully no broken legs!), and reportedly some educational lectures here and there. I am hoping that I will also get in a chance to see Ru for a bit. The other day I was mildly depressed at hearing a local ski shop offering a mid-winter sale. This can't be mid-winter, I am sick of it already!
Army Guy is currently on a mini-deployment in Kentucky. His battalian goes to Iraq in November... I am trying not to worry about it too much at this point, as this is the third set of orders he's had in the less than a year that I have known him. Apparently, they go to two different bases and run simulation missions before being deployed. He's a little stressed out because as a platoon leader there's a whole bunch of pressure on him for his squads to perform well. This one's just for a couple weeks.
