Alive, and attempting to kick!

Anyone still out there?  I'm back in Colorado, albeit with mixed feelings.  I owe you folks a huge update, but my heart has not been into blogging lately.  I can barely bring myself to keep up with my blog-roll, which regularly tops 250+ unread posts.

I may not have been deployed, and I'm not downplaying those emotions or even trying to liken my own to them, but reintegration has been a challenge.  I was blissfully out of touch with reality while I was gone, and I was extremely successful at what I was doing.  I come back to disorganization and chaos, both at home and work.  Colorado feels different.  I feel different.

My best to you as you reintegrate. I hope it gets easier for you, and you get back into a civilian groove. :)

I hope you find your routine soon. Deployment or not, reintegration is hard.

i was only gone two months and it took me a while to get back to normal. it is strange coming back to a familiar place, yet things have changed while you have been away. it is hard to find your "home self" again. don't worry though, it will all become normal again.

HI Erin,

Congratulations on the new arrival. I just got back from BMT and Tech School and you helped me so much before I left and now since I have returned with getting back in the swing of being with my guard unit and everything. Thank you again.
