This past week I gave my blessing for my husband to choose between two potential new units. One of them is scheduled to go on a MEU (a deployment on ship, generally non combat). The other is scheduled to go to the middle east. The former would have sent us to California. The latter back where we came from.
We're going back where we came from.
He'll deploy again later this year, for his fifth combat deployment. I wonder how many non-military people would understand how I could possibly help make the decision to send my husband into harm's way?
He asked if I would resent it at all. No, I don't. I won't. Well, unless ... but, we won't go there. It's his career, he needs to do what he feels called to do.
Sarah, I actually made the drive and was house hunting most of last week. A few "I could live heres", a few "Hmm, maybes", a couple "Probably Nots" and a couple "Oh hell nos." The tenants in our house have expressed interest in buying it, so we're hoping that is indeed what happens. The property manager is a pain in the patootie to get hold of though, and I'm starting to worry. We're headed back over President's Day weekend, so hopefully some things will start to fall into place! DH graduates at the end of February, so we need to move by early March.
Oh and since my 4 year old is watching me type this, she asked me to use this icon...
It makes her laugh.
We'll keep you in our prayers again. Hang tough girl!
On the plus side, at least you'll be familiar with the place you're going to, right?
Good luck with the househunting! We're doing that this weekend too.
