April 26th - Goodbye house

Posted by Bill Bickford on Thursday, April 26, 2012,
    Most people remember the day they bought their first house.  Mine was June 27th 2008.  Well, today is the day I got rid of it.  Bittersweet because it took me so long to actually buy it and now it's gone.  At least it is no longer hanging over my head.  Goodbye 3319 Mexicali.

April 23rd - Another day

Here we are.  The end of April and it's been flying.  Hoping for the rest of the time to fly as well. 
Been getting warmer too.  Not quite close to the 130's I experiened when I first go there but it probably isn't far off.  I can't believe how hot it was when I first got here.  It was unbelievable.
Today is also day one - The New Start.  I'm focusing on eating healthy and working out and taking care of myself.  I've been off and on since I got to Iraq but I am focusing now and all in.  Game o...

Today seems to be a decent day here in Iraq.  Clear sky and warm.  Yesterday was a crappy day.  Was overcast the entire day, had some rain, which was nice and it didn't turn into another mudstorm like we had previously. 

Had a nice rant on here about 2 old men who work here and yesterday I was trapped in between them...

April 3rd - A new month

Posted by Bill Bickford on Tuesday, April 3, 2012,
Another month has come and that means I am closer to getting out of here.  I've been a bit frustrated with the pace of this place and the rumors and constant going round and round.  Trying to keep a positive attitude and mindset and get out of here soon.  Keeping my eye on the big picture and ready to start the next phase of my life.  Can't wait to do that.  Very excited about the future.  Until we write again...
