Fast forward – 3 days later still in Kuwait for Christmas

It’s been 3 days now and my luggage still hasn’t arrived.  I bought some extra clothes and necessities at the PX to hold me over.  Last night was Christmas Eve and I entertained myself at the MWR center.  They had a special BINGO game and gave prizes out to the winners.  I still wasn’t having any luck or perhaps I just had terrible BINGO cards.  Despite some meager Christmas decorations and a small ornamented tree, it just didn’t feel like Christmas.  I had really hoped to be back at camp with my team for Christmas.

Today is Christmas and it feels like a ghost town here.  They brought in enough planes to get everyone out with the exception of a few stragglers or people who missed their roll call.  My tent is empty except for me and an Army Captain who is leaving tomorrow.  Maybe tonight I will get some quality sleep.  I never thought waiting and doing nothing could be so exhausting.
