Initial Assessment

This is my first post to this blog and my first blog ever. I know, I never thought I would sink this low, but as some of you know, I'm about to head out to Afghanistan again. I decided I would try to do this regularly in order to prevent total boredom and disillusionment. I can't promise that there will be anything interesting at all on this blog because really the only thing I will be able to talk about is my day-to-day existence, BUT my close family and friends (and anyone else who cares) can stay connected to me this way. My goal is to post once a day - even if it is short - just to get into some sort of routine. We'll see how that goes. Anyway, I hope you follow me along my journey. Enjoy!


  1. We will be looking forward to your blogs daily!!!You kept everyone entertained with your 'emails from Iraq'...I forwarded them on to others so could understand a little what was going on there....I'm so glad you are a Fobbit..hope Nick will be one too..Love you,Gramma and Grampa

  2. I am pumped about these posts Em...Grandma explained fobbits to be... thank god... I was absolutely clueless...I heard fobbit.. and the closest word association that popped up in my head was bobbit... then I thought of Loraina... and started worrying about Nick... lol... not true...

    When I was living in Florida and Timmy was still in Ohio.... I always wished that time could go faster than it should. I hope this for you and Nick as well.

    Take care... We love ya... and thanks so much for the wedding pics :)
