I Love Trailers!

Trailer. Original Set Up – My 1/2
Originally uploaded by beckydanaher.

Greetings from my trailer. That’s right, I am in my trailer and writing to you from the internet hooked up in my trailer. How connected am I? So, this picture pretty much shows you half of the trailer; I share the other half with my wonderful roommate. The only issue is that I don’t ever see her since we work opposite shifts. The crazy thing is, I have been yearning for some time to myself for about 6 months. Now that I have it, I get a little lonely. Who would have thunk such a thing? 🙂

This is my bed, locker, rug I bought at the haji-mart and pictures of all my loving friends and family. This way I can see your smiling faces anytime I wish. We also have a desk, mini frig, microwave and TV – not to mention the AC and the internet. So, yeah, we are set. It’s been over a week and we are already thinking about moving things around. You know me, I really have to have it the most efficient way possible. I realize my flaw and am OK with it.
The cool thing about this trailer is that all the walls are metal, so I magnatize everything. It’s a cool feature I never thought I would like so much. What a nerd huh.

Well, I just worked out, I am heading to the shower trailer, then going to bed. Tonight my shift is going to the only restaraunt on post. It’s Italian and we are going for the first time. We waiting until now, so we didn’t go to everything on post in the first week, then have nothing to look forward to. So, it’s a pretty exciting evening. Tah Tah.

Thank you for the MAIL

Hello Everyone,
I just want to say that it has been a long time since I have been able to write. It has been quite interesting on this end to say the least. I am safe and all is good though. I do have to express my gratitude for all the love coming my way. I returned to my home here to find 10 packages with my name on them, plus another 10-15 letters. I was quite the talk of the town (or base as it is). Then, they kept coming. I am sorry that I haven’t been able to communicate as often as I would like. Things on this end are back to very busy, 12 hour shifts and what not. It will not be like this forever, but for a while longer. Oh, and I am still not in my trailer, so the access to the computer is limited for me and it takes a while to get from place to place.

However, I do want to give a great thanks to everyone that spent the time, thought and money into sending love and support my way. I know it is not cheap to send packages to the other side of the world. All the supplies are perfect. I put together little care packages for my soldier, which made them so happy. It is a great thing to make a soldier at war, in the desert happy. You are doing great things!!!

I am putting in the mail log all the packages and letters I have received so you know what has made it and what others have sent. It has been taking about 7 days for packages and letters. Sometimes it is a bit longer, but overall about a week. I wrote more lengthy entries for each package to give everyone a little more info. Just click on the Mail Log link on the right, click comments then scroll down until you see the more recent date towards the bottom.

I wish I could be there and give each and everyone of you a big hug to thank you. You do not even know how much I wish I could do that. I miss you and love you!
