    It seems that lately the only we know about our future is that we don't know much about our future. Everything seems to hinge on whether I get promoted next year, which I will find out about in early March. Based on my last evaluation, the promotion seems like nearly a sure thing, but you never know. I take my test on Dec 1st, then I get to just wait 3 months to find out. If I make the promotion, it is almost certain that Kelley and I will move, and more than likely to the DC/Baltimore area. This works out for both of us because that is a hot bed for jobs in Kelley's field. It means that I stay in the military for at least 2 years after I put on the stripe and in reality I'd likely stay for at least 3 due to retirement details, putting me in the military at a minimum of 24 1/2 years.

    If I don't get that promotion, things get a whole lot more uncertain. I doubt that I would try to get promoted again, and Kelley would start trying to find a new job nation-wide. We have no idea where she might find the best job, so we have no idea where in the country we would go. And we wouldn't know when either. This all makes us very anxious for that March date when we find out what fork in the road we're going. It is easier on me, because I am more of a take life as it comes kinda person, but this stresses Kelley out.

    Other than that, things are going pretty well. Kelley got a 1% raise just as an "atta boy" in the middle of the year because she is awesome at her job. I start college in a little less than 3 weeks and am getting a little nervous about that. I got my Bachelor's degree over 10 years ago - I've been out of school so long! We'll see how it goes!
