It's been a while since we've done any kind of social activity with the whole unit; it's so cold and snowy people mostly stay in their rooms. But I got as many people together as I could today to celebrate an important day: our replacements started their pre-deployment Combat Skills Training in New Jersey today. One step closer to going home.
We made pumpkin bread, brownies, and pizza on the grill, thanks to many generous packages from my family. The board game saga of Officers v. Enlisted continued with Pictionary tonight. The officers won both rounds, bringing our record to... 3 wins, 12 losses
Mostly I just wanted an excuse to get everyone together and have some laughs. I will occasionally go days without seeing my teammates, because the work tempo has slowed so much, and I worry about people just hiding out in their rooms with no one to notice if they are happy or sad. So I needed a reason to get people out.
...and a reason to make the cookie-brownie Supreme Bars my sister sent me!
