Since I’ve got about four months left in Baghdad, I’ve been thinking about what I want to do when I get home. I think the answer is “take a vacation with my wife.”
So, earlier this week, we booked ourselves a Caribbean cruise. We’ll be sailing on the Crown Princess from Princess Cruise Lines.
I’m really looking forward to taking some time away from the hustle and bustle of carrying a gun and ducking from the explosions.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m doing some important work over here in Iraq, and I feel like I’m making a difference. However, I’ve never been away from my family for so long. I may be coming home at the end of December, but I hope my office doesn’t expect to see me until February.
So, I recommend that everyone take a week off in January and hang out with us on our cruise. We’ll be on the Lido Deck watching movies.
