I sent the girlfriend to her parents place a couple hours north yesterday to be with family today since I had to work. Since we switched to 12's this year there isn't much time for anything else on work days. So I show up after the 30 minute commute, get all geared up and am sitting in roll call as the commander goes down the lineup. Hmm, didn't mention my name:confused:. "Hey Sarge, where am I at today?". "Shows you took a Personal Day"...."Ah crap!!! I'll just stick it out since I'm here."

You see, with this new shift I only have every other weekend off:mad:. After scheduling my usual 6weeks off in Oct/Nov I still had a good 10 days to burn so I randomly picked a bunch of Sundays. I guess today was one of my picks that I forgot about. Not used to Easter being so early in the year.

So for all of you guys working this Easter Sunday....:darkbeer:, this one's for you. It cost me a nice trip to Cabela's and Bass Pro by not heading up north with her. Oh yea, I mean I didn't get to see her family:wink:

Don't

Forget about the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.... I remember last yr sitting in my office in Iraq and our Adjutant she was walking around and she came into the office said happy easter as was giving away easter baskets.... Things like that that bring normalcy to a place like that again don't forget the troops!

What makes it even funnier is that we are still all getting used to these shifts. Since we technically work 8hrs per cycle overtime and another 4hr of training we get 12hrs back as another day off. I take the first Sat of every cycle off which was yesterday. Last week 2 guys forgot about their days and one showed up on Tues and the other Fri and we made fun of them for showing up. In the locker room this AM we were giving the guy that showed up Fri a bunch of crap about it again and then I pull this stunt:confused:

I hear you on that one Rockets really suck! They have the spray and pray mentality with rockets... My last days there we were living in tents and one morning the C-Ram went off that thing was pointed directly over our tents well the good ol thankful Iraqi's they lobbed 10-13 rockets on us they were trying to hit the MNF-I HQ and 3rd I.D HQ and the dining facility. Rockets were landing all over the place... The funny part our replacements new into country not there for a week were scared sh&@less...
