Patience... Wearing... Thin...

So, been here in Kuwait for about two months now.  I live in a tent with 25 people and most of them have no idea what it means to be a good roommate.  I remember telling Lindsey before this all started that the only thing that would bother me through this whole deployment was the lack of privacy.  It would be nice to be in a CHU (Containerized Housing Unit) again this time; like living in a 20' shipping container with one other person.  My command is saying that there is a good chance that we will move into them later this year but if I held my breath I would be dead by the time they "got around to it".

On a positive note, I was able to be on Skype when My youngest turned One last week.  Lindsey and I found out that he LOVES frosting, but he is not a big fan of cake.  He seems to be doing good with the transition to whole milk.  Hopefully I will be able to get on Skype when the next birthday rolls around in a couple of days.

On a completely unrelated note, I was just involved in a conversation about if fat people can sing better than skinny people.  Of course it had to be googled; I found that while there is an abundance of fat opera singers, there have been no studies conducted about a singers weight, and the affect on their singing ability.  So maybe there should be?  Either way, my friends don't like my choice of music.  Even though Adele has received multiple Grammy awards; no one will admit to liking her music.  I have a feeling that those same people listened to 'NSYNC and would never admit it to their friends.

I have noticed that sometimes it helps to use my blog as a vent, besides I don't have that big of an audience anyways ;)
