Oy Vey!

Bryan and I were discussing our plans for the next couple months, making our home into a rental property after our move and even talking about when "the next one" should join our little family. Well, wouldn't you know, less than 48 hours later, the Army Gods ripped all of that out from under us.

I don't consider myself the "average" Army Wife, I don't have an "Army Wife" sticker on the back of my car and my husband's dog tags are for his neck, not mine. Basically, I just really want our life to revolve around more than the Army, we are so many great things and we just happen to be an Army family. That said, it's hard not to get overly involved when it comes to major changes for all of us. Bryan went to reenlist earlier this week and was basically told to change his MOS or get out, we never saw this coming. I bawled, my husband has always been a Signal Soldier for as long as we have been married and even before. It was just a big shock, the Army is doing some seriously weeding out and unfortunately, it is affecting the wrong people.

Anyway, I eventually stopped bawling and got over my pity party, Bryan reenlisted as a Broadcast Journalist and we are fairly sure than he can go back to Signal when he goes to WOCS (any input on this would be appreciated!) and now we wait for orders. Bryan reports to Fort Meade, MD for AIT December 2nd until March 16th, so we will most definitely have orders very soon, let's just hope we like where the mean ol' Army is sending us! Here's to hoping!


  1. I hate how the Army can be like that. I hope everything ends up being smoother for you can you think :)

  2. Seems like things like that are a trend in all the branches of the military. But ya gotta love 'em for it, right? I hope everything goes smoothly for you & that the Army takes you right where you want to go :)
