Yesterday was a significant day for my family. My wife and I have now been married for six years, and it was also my son's second birthday. I consider myself very lucky to have both of them in my life. We did not get to celebrate together, but at the end of this week we will be able to spend a few days together before I ship out for my tour overseas. I hope to return home for a couple of weeks when the twins are born and then return to finish out my deployment. I'm grateful for the support of friends and family while I'm away.

One of my regrets from my last deployment is that I didn't keep any record of what I was doing and thinking from day to day. A lot of it is pretty fuzzy for me now, and a lot of it I don't really remember anymore. That really goes for many of the events of my life. I don't know that it will be very exciting, but maybe it will be good to look back on somewhere down the road. To that end, I ordered a journal from the Rogue Journals website. The day after I ordered it the announcement came out that any mail arriving after the 5th would be returned to sender, so I sent a message to their customer support requesting to be billed for expedited shipping or for my order to be cancelled. I promptly received a reply thanking me for my military service and explaining that expedited shipping would be provided at no extra charge. The journal arrived yesterday and is exactly what I was looking for.

I've been meaning to post something about the Lord of the Rings miniature games, but the past few days have been pretty busy with training. I may get around to it at some point.

  1. My 32nd wedding anniversary was a few weeks ago. I am still trying to work out where all the time went. :)

  2. Congratulations on your anniversary! I kind of want to go buy something from Rogue Journals now. They sound like a good company!
