Mike is super excited--I have honestly had a lot more time here than he has and there is a lot he still wants to do. I have mixed feelings. Although we aren't moving, everyone close to us will be. It will be, in a way starting all over again--and for that i am nervous. I can't imagine being here without all the girls that have been my support the past 2 years--especially these past 9 months.
The good news is, if you haven't had a chance to come and visit, now you have 3.5 more years! So start saving and planning and come see us!
Also, just to keep you all in the know-- the tentative plan (all things subject to change with upcoming elections and without ever knowing what will happen in the future) Mike should deploy again with the same unit in 2011--for no longer than 12 mos this time-- and then upon his return we will be moving. We have been told that we can do no longer than 2 tours here--and quite honestly, i will be ready to leave--hopefully on to another exciting place. I mean, if we are going to endure the deployments, at least we can see the world on the Army's paycheck. There are still plenty of places we want to go!
He says "hello"--he has been busy lately traveling around checking up on his ammo sites. Hopefully, he will have an update soon.
