Complaining...

My time to whine and complain, as most of you know we have been waiting and waiting to find out what the Air Force is going to do regarding my husband – to medical retire him or let him stay in. At this point (we’ve been dealing with this since last year when he had his back surgery) I’m ready to just be done. Let me give you a little background as to what happens if we ever get word from the doctors reviewing his records. Once he receives word they are going to retire him we have 40 days, yes that’s right 40 days to move out of our house (base housing) which before we can do that we have to schedule the movers, then find a place to live, get new jobs, enroll Shane in a new school, all this in 40 days! So we have come up with a plan to move back to Florida probably just temporary so we can sort everything out and enroll Shane in school. Of course now that Christmas is approaching it is making things more difficult. We thought Shane and I would go on down when he breaks for school and we would be able to spend Christmas with all of our family (except for husband). Of course I have to give my work a notice and I can’t do that because we haven’t heard anything yet. See where I’m going with this? Every question has another unanswered question. I really feel I owe my boss more than a two week notice, she knows we are waiting on word but I don’t think she is accepting really what it means. So with all this going on I’ve learned how to try and deal with the stress, like taking a yoga class and drinking my kava tea! I really do try and stay positive but sometimes I just need to vent.

I would hate the not knowing too! Especially since it means a lot of changes, but you'll be fine!!!! Remember what was created in 40 days????

You go ahead and vent...that is so much stress and you sure are going a good job of dealing with this. It's good that you have a plan set up for what you'll do but I know that's hard waiting. I hope you hear something soon and I hope you get to come back this way..if even for just a little while. We need to run the roads a bit when you get down here.

I feel so sorry for you. What a horrible position to be in. And only have 40 days?? Are they crazy?? That hardly seems fair considering your husband's put his life on the line. Anytime you want to vent, feel free. That's what we're here for. If you need anything, don't be afraid to ask!!

That sounds really stressful. they shoudl really keep you all more updated on all that. I'm sure all will work out smoothly though and I know you are anxious to get back down south, right?! ;)
