This project is really getting frustrating. It seems like nobody knows what’s going on, and every time we think we’ve got it, someone changes their mind. This has got to be the most poorly planned/organized project I’ve worked on in the Corps.
Enough negative feldergarb. The Arctic front finally left last week. Now we’ve resumed normal temperatures. Actually, I kinda liked the cold weather. It reminded me of home, and I didn’t see a single mosquito for a week and a half.
I’ve been thinking of Illinois quite a bit lately. Homesick, I guess. As much as I’m enjoying myself here, I can’t help but think that I’m on a big adventure and that eventually I’ll return to Illinois. It’s been my home for as long as I can remember, and I don’t really have a peace inside about settling down permanently anywhere else.
