Ok, so NOW what??!

Darrell logged on to AKO today to show something to someone else and saw that his Korea assignment had been deleted. This is good news and bad news at the same time.

It's good that he's not going to Korea, but the reason they're not filling Korea is because they need his MOS and rank stateside to fill the units being deployed.

Great. *sarcasm* So now instead of him spending a year in a relatively safe area, albeit on the opposite side of the planet, he'll be who knows how long in a war zone somewhere again.

Double great. *sarcasm* We weren't expecting to move the rest of us until August-ish 2008 when he came back, but now we might need to move August-ish THIS year. That means we need to work on getting the house ready to be sold sooner rather than later. And with the market around here, with houses not moving fast, it could get to a point where we need to rent it out. I was hoping to avoid that.

OR, we could stay here, depending on where Darrell goes, and how soon they'll be deploying. We won't have an idea where that might be until April at the earliest, and possibly not even until a month or two after that. If we do end up needing to move, that doesn't give us a lot of prep time.

Just this morning, I put in an application to get Justin into another school and/or program within the school district. While I'm not going to pull it out of the running, it looks like we may not need it. We don't find out about that until mid-March anyway, with the decision deadline coming before we know when/where we'll be going next.

Wow, life just got really interesting really fast. (Sam, I'm still pulling for Riley!!)

  1. Hang in there. I have no way to appreciate what it must be like to be in a military family right now, but we're all still behind you.
