Man in the Middle

I have felt like I am caught in the midst of a brewing storm for the last few weeks.  I sincerely hope it settles down before it gets worse.  I will not go into specifics, because there is more than one situation, and I have no intention of voicing one of them in such a public forum.  I will say that I am not happy about it, though.  Far from it.

I did get my car back, but ended up having to take it to the shop again.  Transmission fluid is not supposed to leak, and smoke is not supposed to come from the engine compartment.  I will be picking it up again in a few hours and hoping it is fixed completely this time.

Christmas and New Year's were both peaceful.  I was happy about that.  I had to work New Year's, too.  I have a new digital camera to play with.  I bought it with the money I got from my family.  I still have money to spend from my parents and grandmother.  I also got a Chinese snuff box from Nathan and some little cat figurines from my aunt.  Presents appear to still be coming in.  I got the present from my aunt earlier this week.

Work is difficult as always.  It does not seem to be getting any easier.  One of my troops got assaulted in a club on New Year's Eve.  Broken nose and fractured cheekbone.  Luckily, a friend of his was nearby and pulled the other guy off of him.  Another troop is delinquent on payments to his storage area.  I have gotten e-mails and talked to the flight chief about it.  Supposedly, he has made arrangements to pay the amount on the 15th.  We will see.

More to come.
