Remember those days when you used to work shift jobs. Especially how nice it was when it came time for shift change and you see your replacement walk through the door. You know its time to go so you get your things together, hit the time clock, and out you go. Now imagine that you have been on shift for a year and you get to finally see your replacements. Thats where im at now.
It has been over 330 days since I was activated with the Army Reserves. It started when I got a ten day notice to show up at Fort Huachuca, Arizona to learn a new job. Then sent to Fort Benning, Georgia for deployment training. Then on to Iraq. I spent a few months up in Baghdad, then quickly moved to Basra, Iraq.
I still can't mention dates but some time ago I finally got to see my replacement show up to start learning the job. We first spend a period of time training up our replacements so they can see exactly where we are, followed by a couple days of packing, then on my way home. I will say that I am in the middle of that time period somewhere, and it is very refreshing. Sometime in the near future I will be on a plane on my way back home.
I have shifted gears here and starting preparing heavily for my return. I spent the past few weeks researching my SEO for my website and studying more on the home market. I have been interviewing and researching a few brokers back home in case I decide to switch companies. I have also planned a surprise weekend getaway for me and my wife once I return. Hopefully after Christmas I will be ready to hit the Real Estate doors running.
Anyway It looks like I have to go now, but I will continue on this later.
As always thanks to all who support us!
