Going Back...

Well, my wedding vacation is over. I'm going back to base tonight. Almost four weeks, not bad. And then my regilah (week vacation every soldier receives about every 4 months) starts after my Tekes Sof Maslul on Thursday. In Afulah. Away from Yerushalayim. Away from Zalman's wedding. I hope I can make it on time.

I must say, being married is cool. It feels different. More grown up I guess, which is weird, because whod'a thunk I would've done this so fast? Heh, not me.

Crazy stuff...Sometimes I just can't believe I'm married. And in the army. And all that. Wow. BHYY.

Happy birthday to me :-)

The 25 Hour...From Now

So my wedding is now a shabbos away (aka in another 25 hours). Never thought it would come so quickly. A really great friend, mentor, and teacher of mine on my last birthday said, "happy birthday. i know it will be the start of your best year yet!..." I don't really know how she knew that, unless she just figured, army, got to be. I don't know. I'll ask her.

I'm just sitting and waiting til it happens. I mean, obviously, if something needs to be done, I'm doing it. But in general, that's what im doing. It really nervewracking, I just want it to happen already. Nu nu...

Besides that I'm good. The army's not bad. Two weeks ago guy left to the commanders course, so now we don't have enough people to go on missions every night like we used to. That's a load off the head. More breaks, more time off to do nothing, or whatever else you want. Actually, if I wouldn't be getting married now, I would have returned to base on Sunday night to go on a big mission. I heard it went ok BH.

Because I'm getting married, I beH will be on vacation for awile, so I had to return my gun. I have to say, boy I miss that thing (don't worry, I miss Tzivia more). Carrying it around for a whole year, you get attached to it. And honestly, I feel safe with it. I know that if ch"v something happened, I'd be able to take care of business. Or at least, it would be much easier than if I didn't have a gun.

I don't know, that's pretty much all I have to say now. Just thinking about the wedding, getting married, hope no one's insulted if I forgot anything or anyone. And all that stuff. Hope everyone's doing ok. I'll try to post more often, now that I'm on vacation and that beH I'll be getting out every Shabbos. We'll see.
