Letter 19: Gee Ma I wanna go but they won't let me go ...

Oct. 1, 2008

Hey family!

Wow it's October already? Time is going by so fast. And it's Wednesday! Wow. Well we did some more BRM today making it a LONG day! And some how we pissed off one of our Drill Sergeants and he made us sprint, army press and forward lunge all through a sand pit for a good 1/2 hour or more. Oh it sucked! And we were in full battle rattle. So I am exhausted!

I got Sister Taylor's letter. It helped cheer up my day.

Oh man you have no idea how bad I wanna go home right now. I mean I'm pushing myself but I just miss you all so bad and so much. Plus I wouldn't mind being lazy at the moment. lol No but mainly it's because I miss you all. I didn't think moving away from home would feel like this. sigh

Oh! Mom you gotta try this new thing. OK for dinner I had fried pork chops and OMGOSH! They were so good! All you do is make them like you make fried chicken except use pork chops! I highly recommend it.

I'm still on the verge of killing some females. I'm telling ya that is part of the worst parts of BCT. Um I still haven't gotten Elder Taylor's letter. Either it's on the way or lost. But I dunno.

What else ... We qualify with our weapons in about a week and unfortunately we are still in red phase. I really wish we'd change to white phase. That way we'd be closer to getting this over and done with.

Oh and I got paid!

Oh yeah and Jeff I figured out your birthday present. hehe But it'll be a late one since I won't be able to get it to you or buy it until I get back home.

So I finally have a best friend at basic training. Her name is Elyssa and she is way cool. We hang our at least every night at free time.

But yeah, I need to go to sleep.

I love you all!
