10 yrs down 10 to go

New Year's Eve came and went with little notice-after a long day at a friends wedding we slept right thru it. New Year's eve marked our career hump day! We are on the downward slope to retirement from the military. It is exciting to dream of the future and what life might bring us between now and then, the people we will become thru the ups and downs, and the places we might go.

So happy belated "hump day" Jake! Heres to 10 more years of deployments, field exercises, schools, uncertainty, travel, pay raises, housing allowances, honeymoon phases every time you return from a long trip, big phone bills, free medical, job security, and lots of friends to come in and out of our lives. I wouldn't do this for any other man. love ya my silly tomato!

P.S. tests results are back and everything is in the normal ranges for Daniel. It is just a watch and wait to see if things improve over the next few weeks before our next Dr. Appt. Thanks for all your prayers!
