Good Ol' Circle-Jerk

Well, I updated the masses on our plans yesterday; PCSing was a no-go, as told by Branch. So we were on to plans B and C; selling the house- moving on post and renting the house- moving in with sister....

As I'm sure you can tell by the title of my blog today, we are once again succumbing to the very old deep-rooted tradition (in the Army) of being jerked around!! Branch tells Kevin he has no options, we're staying at Carson. Being that I'm a fairly linear thinker I move on to Plans B and C. A bit too soon by Army standards, evidently. Branch may have told Kevin to bug off, but "SSG St. I-can't-remember-his-name" over in retention told Kevin he has to sign a waiver to... ummm, well, "wave" his stabilization before they show/have any PCS options for us. Oiy! So we are waiting to sign this waiver and then back to step one and Plan A- waiting to see what our options are. If they are even somewhat appealing in anyway. If they suck, if for instance our options are only Hood, Stewart and Irwin, we'll stay put- thank you very much. But if we have more appealing options such as Lewis, Germany or Benning (a stretch with this one, I'm not a huge fan of sweat and disgustingly huge bugs, roaches... ewwww) than we'll have some decisions to make. The next few days should be very interesting. Now we've also been sucked back into the Army favorite past-time "Hurry up and wait"... ahh it's nice to be back.

Anyway, so today I have an application to drop off, I'm going to the gym (ugh it's been a few days and I only went once last week I haven't gained any weight but goodness I feel like I giant tub-o-goo bleh...) and the NAF office on post.. woopty doooo!

I hope you can come to Germany! haha. Hopefully they will hurry up and give you your options that way your not driving yourself crazy not knowing what's going to to happen. Good luck with the job search!

Actually, I'm kind of hoping for Benning for our first post. I'm already used to nasty-hot summers, and I'd love the chance to travel to some historical sights in Georgia. It'd be a lot easier if we were already living there! But yes, Germany would be awesome, too, but I bet we'll have to wait a few years for that one!
