I am ashamed. I’ve got my hands behind my back, my head’s down, and I’m making little circles in the dirt with my foot.
I know it’s been a long time, guys. This might be the longest I’ve ever gone without a new post. And I left you hanging with such a lame one, as well!
But I made it safely back from Germany. I’m not going to lie, it was really hard and I was pretty broken and empty when I got back to Norway. BUT, once I got back to Norway, things quickly started looking up. For instance, I saw a moose wandering through a snowy field on our way to Grimerud from the airport. Cool! (By the way, this picture is taken from the plane as I descended into the eternal winter that is Norway. Okay, it’s not THAT bad, but dude, look at all that snow!)
No, but really, it’s been amazing to be back here at Grimerud. Being away has made me realize even more what a special place this is. I’m not going to get started on all my feelings about that – it’s a post for another day.
But last week we had a really fun, memorable week of debriefing with the DTS. So…not much time to blog. And this week I’ve just been trying to soak in my last few moments in Norway, so I’m not really into hanging out in front of my computer until just before bed when Facebook calls my name like the crafty siren she is.
I just wanted you all to know that I’m doing well, I’m still alive, and I’ve got a few ideas for new posts in my head that hopefully I can get up soon…maybe even this weekend because most of the base are working like busy little ants for the Easter Festival this week.
