Andrew's Day Off: 2 Weeks Later

Remember when my Day Off made me realize that I needed to pace myself, to take more personal time between the various missions my team and I are tasked with?

It's 0111 in the morning right now. I just got back to my hooch, and I'm going to sleep for 5.5 hours, in my clothes, and then wake up to shave and get cleaned up in time for my 0730 meeting. Tonight is not atypical. **

I've pulled one all nighter in the past two weeks, and one almost all nighter--abed by 0345, arisen by 0545. I'm regularly (i.e. most nights) in the office after midnight. Granted, I'm not getting up at hours you'd typically expect for the Army--I can swing 8 AM wake ups a few times a week--but I'm still working far more hours than is healthy, and as you know this is a 7 day a week gig.

Sigh...it's really not that I want to be doing this, it's just that I've been pretty well trapped into this lifestyle. I have to sustain it, sustain something at least, for about 2 more months. After that I think things will slow down.

But we've all heard me say that before.

These hours are much of your own making. People who are sick don't see babies. People who don't listen to their wives about working all nighters get sick. (Sicker in your case). Therefore, stop thinking you have to fight the war on your own. Get some rest or else you will have to be quarantined during leave.

As a mother I tend to agree with your dear wife's post.
Many years ago when I was in college one of my psych professors made the following comment:
" If I am not for me, who will be?"
Even after 31 years this comment has stuck with me.
Sometimes Andrew you do have to stop and do what is good for you.
Take care of yourself and take some time for yourself

Hang tough!

I was in the 3rd Brigade Combat team, but was in car accident, was injured and discharged.

But I know what it is like to go many days without sleep on a long deployment. If you stay in shape, the body can live on 4-5 hours of sleep a night.

Of course this should only be temporary--2 months at most. After that you need time to recover.

Talk to your leader if you need to, or be more organized and sleep more on your off time, but make sure you take care of yourself. The old military adage is true, if you don't take care of yourself, no one else will.

At any rate, nice blog site! Hang tough--there are many people here in the States that really appreciate and are honored by what you do.

Thanks to all for the tough love and kind words. I think you're all right on the money, particularly my beautiful wife (whose perpetual rightness I've been advised not to question). I should also say that I've taken it easy the last two evenings in a row. That isn't to say that I won't have some more late nights in my future, but for now I'm getting the rest I need to stay in the fight.
