Woah. I'm beat.

Grenade assault course. MOUT training. Pretty good stuff, but there were some... issues. I'm not going to get into it, nor into the interpersonal drama amongst the students, but instead give you a 'me' update.

I did not break my arm. It's just a really really deep bruise that makes it look like my forearm is deformed. I think I doubled the number of bruises I had just from today.

The cactus needles are still there, just pretty much broken off down to the skin. Itches a little.

Still, I'm looking forward to Monday. I get to pin rank on one of my students (to become SPC/E-4) which is an honor. Then we do some "Army training" in the morning (and maybe the afternoon) and then head out onto the exercise that evening. I'll be away from the computer for... most of the week, anyway.

This is a 'Daddy weekend', so I should be away from the computer quite a bit now, too. Ta.

well that is good to hear (that your arm is not broken)

Have a good weekend with the kids.

The bruise is about three inches in diameter. All that blood was deep under, so it sort of bulged up like when you burst a vein with a botched IV. Once it spread out, it isn't as bulging.
