Ok, so I have some news. When I said this to my mother she thought I was going to tell her I was pregnant with a baby girl! But well, that's not the news. The news is that Kevin has temporary/conditional orders!!! To where, you ask? GERMANY!!!! 
I am thrilled with this prospect and couldn't be more hopeful. 
The orders are conditional on Kevin's chain of command all signing off on lifting his fence. We can't figure out why he's fenced into his current unit... No one can figure it out. All the same we're waiting for about another two weeks for the final answer! Keep your fingers crossed people. If all works out we'd PCS in November. Wowzas!

So you all know I started a job 3 weeks ago, right? Evidently I found a job with the only company in town with no military affiliated people! I swear this is the least military-savy group of people I have ever met. The other day one of my co-workers was shocked when I told them that my husband is up and out of the house by 430 everyday. "WHY?!" he asks. "PT" I said. "What's that?" He says. "Seriously?" I say. 
It only gets worse from there. 
I explain to my *ignorant co-worker that there's a war going on and they have practice their running so that they're conditioned if they should have to run to and fro to ensure their personal safety. 
Just saying. 

Have you heard about what Iraq and Afghanistan Veteran's of America (IAVA) is doing with Miller High Life? 
They're teaming up for the sole purpose of giving back to Vets. Head over to their website and take a look in the Rucksack to search for events in your area. They're giving away tickets to events such as MLB games, NFL games and Nascar events. Head over to the website for more details on how to participate.

I know I'm really cramming a lot into this one post but I HAVE to share with everyone that my Best Friend, Amanda had her first baby last Friday the 25th!! I can't believe it but she's really somebody's mother! It's intense and I'm happy for her and her family.
Baby Matthew Alan was born at 836 PM EST. Weighing in at 7.36 LBS and 18" long.
I love you Manda... and my new Godson Matthew!
Go check out my guest blogging the day Matthew was born.

1 more day of work before a week off for vacation. (less than) 2 days until ECLIPSE! Yes I'm mother-effing excited about that. And 3 days until our vacation to SAN DIEGO!
I'm one excited girl.
but I'm headed to bed.

Sounds like you may no longer have to be jealous :) Hope it works out for you. They usually fence a unit when it's under deployment orders. A friend of mine has been fenced for over a year and he doesnt leave until March.

I hope your orders work out also! We are stationed in Baumholder Germany for 3 months now and love everything about it here! Good luck and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Jenna said...

Germany!? I'm out of the loop -I don't know why you want to go to Germany? Adventure? If so, I get that :) I wish you guys the very best, of course!

So cool - your bf had a baby! Guess what? My best friend (at least while I was younger), who's family lives across the street, had a baby on the 24th! I'm still SHOCKED to think of her with a baby. As one of our friends put it, "I feel behind in life." :) I know, I know. But, really!? It's so crazy that she's a mom. It's so amazing. ahhh :) Congratulations to you and your bff!!

Remember......a company with no affiliation to the Military must have Commies that work there! LOL.....
