Hitting The Ground Reading

I just ordered my copy of “My War..Killing Time In Iraq” and I am looking forward to reading it. With the elections going on and the news of Soldiers being killed recently in the Middle East, I think it will be interesting to read a first hand account of what our Troops see and experience on deployments.
I am glad that it will take a week for my book to arrive by mail though. I have so much to catch up on!! Between the magazines that piled up in our mailbox while we were gone, to the huge amount of candidate research I have yet to do and the newspapers I have to skim through on-line I feel so behind.
I am determined to make this the year of self-improvement. Between my new Nintendo NS Lite and the BrainAge and NYTimes Crossword Puzzle games I got for it and the many new books I received between Christmas and my birthday I have think I have a good amount of material to help me get started on my year of self-educating and growing as an adult.
