Last post for awhile

The next time you all should hear from me I will be on the other side of the pond WOOOHOOOO:-D Tomorrow we go through customs and board the buses for Doha and then the plane. YAY! It's been a long year, and an interesting one at that. I have learned a lot, lived a lot more, and we will see just how much this year has changed me. Thanks to each and every one of you for standing behind me through it all!
EDIT at 2325:
Thus far I have finished almost all my packing, save for the necessaries for tomorrow morning, and gotten to spend a bit more time with Baby Brat. We kicked back in my tent earlier with a pizza, and played a few games of Battleship. Damned if he didn't kick my a**:) I am up late, as 90% of my tent is up as well, and I won't be sleeping for awhile, so here I am kicking around the internet cafe, listening to the radio and finding amusing reads:-D

Lizzie,
Thank you for your service and for providing lots of us with a good read everyday. Hope your wounds have healed up. When you start college you will have a lot to tell the other students. Good luck.

Hi Lizzie,

I enjoyed visiting your site. Life in the army sounds... hectic. Keep safe and drink a Dr. Pepper.

Dear Sgt. Lizzie,
It has been wonderful (mostly! :) reading along with you as you are protecting all of us. Thank you. I will be praying for a safe flight home for all of you. Please, write as soon as you can to let us know you made it okay. Godspeed.

Lizzie,
Here's hoping they bring you home on a commercial bird, instead of something like Seaboard World, or (horrors!) a MAC trash-hauler! You and your fellow soldiers deserve the pampering you'd get aboard a commercial aircraft! God bless, and keep blogging after you get home!

I enjoy reading your blog. I was in the Navy at age 23, but never near danger like you, now I'm a 47yo mom with a 15yod and 12yos. I've been teaching them that there are good folks in harm's way all throughout our history that keep us safe and free. You are included in that storied group. Whatever you learn about yourself this year will be a wonderful step in the great stages to come. I was once enlisted and single, now married and a mom, someday a grandmother, each stage a gift. Each worth living. Thank you Sgt Lizzie, my dish towel is raised in proud salute to you!
