Future still uncertain

DJ / 1 Year Ago

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!

    We went on a cruise!
    The TLDR or "short, short version" about what we did

    We did a 7 day Caribbean cruise with DJ's sister, Lori, her husband, James, and their kids, Oliver and Lucy. We flew from Newport News to Houston and sailed from Galveston. We had stops in Cozumel, Mexico; Grand Cayman Island; and

    Moving is hard work
    We moved to our new house six days ago and man, that was some super hard work. I was more exhausted than I've been in quite some time. The only times I can remember it being worse was after our half marathons and after my Spartan Race. I tried to workout two days later and could barely do any of the moves. It was just silly.

    The house is coming together nicely, though. It is older, but we like its quirks, and the backyard is simply amazing. This house will force us to be more social which I think is a good thing. We were very secluded in our last house. I worry a little about how much the utilities will cost, but I don't think it could possibly be that bad.

    We should be here for at least 17 months, quite possibly longer, and we're going to enjoy it while it lasts!
