I am now six months into the new job and am starting to feel more settled. Like any other job, some days are better than others. I do really like my co-workers and am glad that I ended up here.
AG has completed his last mission and is scheduled to return from Afghanistan in just a few more weeks. His 12-month deployment technically should have been up on December 13, but with his promotion came a transfer to a unit that didn't start until January.
Last week, I went back to Arizona to spend the holidays with my family, and ended up catching a nasty cold that is still lingering on. I think that traveling on a plane in December must just not agree with me, as this is the third time this has now happened. At least the weather cooperated this year.
As I drove home this evening, there were teeny-tiny snowflakes, so small that you couldn't even see them hit the windshield. Looking at the beam of the headlights, it looked like long, glittering sparkly stands of diamands flying towards the car.
