So close, yet so far

Seriously. I feel like I am in quicksand and just cant get out of this trap. Leap year - just my luck. That extra day is like an entire other month has been tacked onto the deployment. Who invented leap year, anyway? What is its purpose? In any event, I cant complain. Some of my IRR brethren have been royally screwed by the plethora of bad leaders here. Me? I am still on schedule. If a schedule really exists.

I posted some new pictures of some of the trips I've taken recently, and . . . that's about it.

You aren't the only one pissed off about this stupid leap year...Match can't come soon enough. I blame the lawyers!

Jay-

I know you are going to hate me for this, but the purpose of a Leap Year is as follows. An actual year is 365 and 1/4 days, so every forth year we take on an extra day to make up the difference. I know you can see the finish line!!!!

Speaking from experience, the shorter you become the more time stretches.

Keep your head down.

Hang in there. I'm sorry that Leap Year just seems another cruel trick, but hopefully you'll be home soon. :)

Silly boys! Leap Year was invented to give girls a chance every four years to ask a guy to marry her. Some of you guys are smart enough to find a good woman and marry her, but some guys are just slow and will have to wait another four years.

Just you luck, that is twice that you were deployed during leap year. WORST!!
