Week 30

Well, it looks like I'll have to be adjusting my countdown. It's as official as it can be that Patrick will be coming home earlier then January! There's a window from the end of October to the beginning of November, so we'll over estimate and instead of saying 22 weeks left, it will be a max of 12 weeks! In the meantime he'll be home in less then 2 weeks for leave! Still no trip finalized...

Over in Iraq, Pat has been keeping busy. He said before he left that he wanted to see a camel spider, and now he has. He had to kill one, and he said it has pinchers like a crab on its mouth. Also he got to take a trip to the oasis on base, and he said it's a place that is referenced in the Bible. They had to get special permission from the Iraqis to go there. Back in his office, his aerogarden has flowering tomatos and peppers now. Pat also bought a new camera and said he's taking as many pictures as he legally can. Hopefully he'll remember to bring the memory stick home with him so we can upload the pictures here!

That's all for now, as I said before, 30 weeks down... 12 to go!
