Well, today is the first day of my new life. Uneventful really. I’m in a strangely similar situation however. It’s a good thing. After I got back from my second deployment I snagged myself a pretty darn sweet apartment. I was sleeping on the floor with a sleeping bag and had no couch, no table, no dishes, no pots or pans, no nothing… Pretty darn close to how I am today. I gave in and sprung for a cheapy set of Ikea cookware and a pretty cool set of dishes but I’m smiling at the fact that after all has been done, I’m sitting in a lawn chair staring at the air mattress. Of course I had my celebratory beer, but no pizza. I actually am going to make a conscious effort to get back into eating like I used to. Wheat bread, cottage cheese, fresh fruits and veggies, etc etc. It’s my life finally back in my hands and I think I owe it to myself to treat ‘me’ right again.
