Finishing up in the States

Fixing to head to Georgia for CRC (CONUS Replacement Center).

Have to say I am not looking forward to this. My flight to Georgia is on Friday and guess what I get to do Thursday? That’s right, I get to have 2 wisdom teeth yanked and then the next day I get to fly to GA. I have to say I would rather eat one of my own toes. Anyway, the Doc says he is going to drug me so heavily that I won’t remember a thing. Jury is still out. Supposedly they are going to give me some “Happy Juice” whatever the heck that is and some other cocktail that contains Demerol and 2 other drugs. So I guess the best case scenario is that I wake up with 2 less teeth and 4 more addictions. Yeah!

So I am not looking forward to it. I finish the final segment of moving out of my condo tomorrow. My Mom is going to help me. Man it sucks not having a truck anymore. Anyway a buddy of mine is going to live here while I am away and he is going to get rid of the popcorn ceilings and put hardwoods on every other square inch of the house. I was never a fan of wood flooring, but now I actually like it, so I will do every square inch in wood. Carpet sucks; you just have more stuff to vacuum.

Anyway, it is getting closer to the day for me to leave and the biggest issue is packing. It is 1 thing to pack for a weeks trip to the beach, but an entirely different matter when you are packing for Afghanistan for at least 6 months. Yeah I know, waaa waaa. But it is still hard.

Well wish me luck Thursday; hopefully the dentist doesn’t end my life early for me.

Cheers,
Walt

When I was in college I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled at once and still was able to make it to a party that night. You will be fine you big baby.....
