I know it's been a really long time since I posted anything.  I've been in Iraq for almost four months now.  I haven't been taking any photos or updating the blog because there are a lot of things I can't take pictures of or things that I can't talk about.  Let's just say, I'm alive and doing well.  LOL.
It's been a very interesting time here.  I've made friends and had some experiences that I could've done without, but such is life.  I've gotten sick here a couple of times, once from a bug-bite and most recently a viral sore throat.  The weather is mostly nice here, as many of you know, I enjoy the heat, and it's been nice and warm here.  The one sad thing is that with all the friends I've made, most of them leave this summer, so I will have to start all over again... :(  Good thing I make friends easy! Lol.
I've also gotten to dance here, which has been fun, I even ended up DJ-ing one night...let me tell you, I DO NOT aspire to be a DJ!  LOL.  It was fun but an experience I hope to NOT repeat.  I'm trying to stay busy and the work is interesting and good.  I work with great people and that makes all the difference in the world.  I appreciate everyone's prayers for me...please keep them coming! :)  Love you all and miss you tons!
