MapHello All,

This week things have slowed down just a little bit. We are no longer sleeping in our office, which is great. Also, the indirect fire has been reduced to about one event per day. The gym is opened back up, and the body armor is no longer mandatory. That sure makes for a more livable environment. I ended up cancelling my trip north that was planned, I may have to go later. Instead, I'm swamped with setting up a new process for getting work from a new customer into the Army Corps of Engineers. Nothing like getting a Navy guy to set up a process for the Army.

There's a lot going on, and I'm pretty busy. I've been at work till almost 9pm every night this week so far. But the days are flying by. My relief starts his training on Monday, and then should be here in about 5 weeks. I have all the paperwork to arrange my departure, now just need some time to fill it out!!!

The kids are busier than ever, Allison finishing dance and Matthew starting baseball. He seemed very excited, and he will be on the "Phillies" this year. I should be home in time to make the last few games, if everything goes OK. Melanie is also counting days, I am sure. Its down to less than 50!

Short update this week, but that's the way it is. Gotta start my day here. Love to all, Brian
