Getting settled in

DJ / 180 Days Ago

We've been in Virginia for a little over 5 weeks now and things are finally starting to settle down a bit, thankfully. My job will get more normal next week and Kelley's job search will ramp up once the holidays are over. The house is basically in order, just a few things remain to be done/organized. Next up is finding a church and hopefully making a few local friends. Starting over somewhere is challenging, but this is the 4th time we've had to do it (Iceland, Nebraska, Georgia), so I know we are up to the challenge.

    I thought that once I hit 20 years in the Air Force, my future would get more certain and I would know what to expect. Turns out I was wrong. I'll find out in 10-12 days if I made Senior Master Sergeant, and if I do, that means we'll probably have to move to the DC area in 8 months or so. If I don't make it, we'll stay here in Virginia. Of course, I could turn down SMSgt and retire in 11 months also. We just don't know what will happen, but 2 weeks from now we should know a lot more.

    Other than that, Kelley's job is going pretty well most days, and her paycheck has made things much more comfortable on the financial front. We'll just keep plugging away, doing the best we can, making the decisions we believe are right and trust that God will watch over us and help us prosper. We've been very blessed overall since I came back from Korea - things have fallen into place very well - Kelley got a great job, our belongings arrived here on time and mostly undamaged, my job is going to be much less on mids than I feared, among other things. The future is bright for us, no matter where we end up!
