Joys of Army Life

It has been quite a hectic week. (But then, what week around here isn't hectic...) The hubby found out that he is coming up on orders to move again soon. Happy happy, right?! Yes and no.

Yes, because hubby is not entirely thrilled with his job at our current location. He's not a desk kind of guy and he's been sitting at a desk since we got here. He would really rather be out doing the job he was trained to do. Also, happy because we will be returning to our last duty station. While many people don't like the place, we actually enjoyed the area and are looking forward to returning. Plus in this crazy life of ours, we don't often get to go somewhere that we already know. It's comforting to know that I already know where Wal-Mart, Target and the malls are located...I've got my priorities, you know!

No, because the move is coming at a pretty crappy time in terms of my educational pursuits. I currently go to college in hopes of someday graduating. Well, there was finally a light at the end of the tunnel. I was all set to graduate next May. Now we'll be packing it up and heading back to Texas in April. At the end of this semester I will be 9 hours away from my degree. Of course, all the courses I need are upper-level degree specific stuff. What's a girl to do?! I met with my advisor today and we may have worked out some options. Yay! But I still have many hurdles before the road smooths out. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

All in all, this move is one that we are looking forward to. There are many things to work out, but such is the story with all of our moves. I love Army life.

By the way, if any of you know anything about alternative routes to teaching certification in Texas, I'd love to hear about it. My goal is to finish my degree and find a teaching position that will allow me to pursue this option.
