Well, I’m still alive, so that’s a plus.  Actually, life isn’t too bad here lately, so I’ll say that I’m doing better than “just alive.”

Right now, though, I’m a tad frustrated.  I’m at drill, and feeling, as my husband once said, like the proverbial pickle hawked in the street.  Seriously, I’m still trying to get a handle on the fact that I’m in Fire Support, as a non-lethal effect, and that 13F and 46Q are evidently two great tastes that taste great together…*blink blink blink* 

So, I’m still trying to get a handle on the whole thing, and not looking forward to spending more time after drill at meetings, but there we go.  Since I have no public affairs officer, I get to go to the meetings now.  Yay. 

Add to that, the officer I *was* talking to is taking over HHC today, and so, we’re getting a new senior Fires captain.  Except that he’s not going to be around long as he’s moving to Kansas.  And the Fires NCOIC is newer than I am, and has less idea of what to do with me than he would if someone handed him a pink tutu and told him to use it to affect the mission.  *blink blink blink*

As of right now, I’m digging through Field Manuals and Army Regulations, trying to get a handle on my job here at Brigade level.  I have to admit to being totally spoiled by my time in a tiny unit.  It’s been nice, but that time is over and I have got to figure it out.  Equipment is a pain in the drain too, as the crap they’ve got for PAO is literally the old stuff from the MPAD, that we got rid of before our deployment in 2005.  It’s kind of like expecting me to run the Indy 500 in a Yugo.  *blink blink blink*

Oh, and don’t even get me started on my promotion.  The only positive is that it will be backdated to 28 February.  *headdesk headdesk headdesk*  I’m hoping to hear something today, as my NCOER was FINALLY freakin’ sent to EPS by the right person (I think) and the orders should be processed.  Sooner rather than later would be nice…
