Just wanted to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas!! Hope you have a wonderfully terrific day celebrating our Savoir’s birth!!! 😀 😀
Well there’s no going back now. Bob had his swearing in ceremony for the Coast Guard today and he is again officially government property until the year 2012. I’m sad I had to miss it, I didn’t get to see his initial swearing in ceremony when he first joined the Coast Guard either. Nate and Lara got to go to it though and took pictures so at least I will have those 🙂 I’m still having a hard time with it all but at least once we move we’ll have some stability and I’ll know what’s going on in my life!!
So for those of you who haven’t heard yet our lives has taken a drastic change of direction–yet again! Bob has decided to stay in the Coast Guard after all. After arriving in Laramie it looked like school would be too expensive and too hard on Bob since he would have had to work full time along with taking the classes. He absolutely hated his job in grocery at Wal*Mart and was just pretty miserable in general. He had applied for the law enforcement position but they told him that they would be hiring “sometime probably within the following year” Not good news when you’re running out of money in just a few weeks!! So after considering everything and calling his bosses up he decided that the best thing for us would be if he went back into the Coast Guard. In order to be able to still have a job with them though he had to go back immediately. So yesterday he left to drive to NC. He’ll be there till the middle to end of January when he’ll get orders for his new duty station and then we will move from Laramie to where ever they put us. Bob has absolutely no say in where we will be stationed because, as the detailer put it, “He’s getting his move out and back paid for–he better just be happy he has a job!!!” So he will probably end up on a cutter.
Of course I’m having a rather hard time with all of this. He will have to miss Amber’s first Christmas and I’m not even sure when we will get to see each other again. I was really loving being back in Wyoming and so close to my family and I love our new apartment!! (Minus the college neighbors) Plus I really do NOT want to move again in a month–Ugg! But I do want Bob to be doing something that makes him happy and I think now that he’s been out in the “real” world and saw how good he had it in the CG he will really enjoy it. So please just pray for us through all of this!!!! I really need it!! I’m planning on pretty much staying with my family for the remaining month that I am here. I’m very thankful that I will at least get to spend Christmas with them and not alone! And some good friends of ours who are in NC have invited Bob over for Christmas so he won’t be alone either so that’s good!
At least my life will never be boring!!! LoL. I just keep telling myself “At least it’s not the Army!!!!!!!”
