Right now I'm pretty happy with the way things are going in the Army. My civilian friends would probably think my interest in Pat's career progression is over the top, but they don't realize that his career affects so much more than just our income. It seems like Pat and I are in a situation of "when one door closes, another one opens." Usually our luck doesn't let things work out for us. Yes, things always work out, but not usually the way we'd like. We've become pretty good at making the best out of situations and dealing with what we are handed. I don't want to get into the specifics because as prefaced I'm probably jinxing it as I type. I can say that it seems like we could have more options for our next career move than we originally thought. The prospect of this newest one excites me because it could give us exactly what we want and need. I know nothing is definite, and given our track record it probably will fall through. However, I cannot help but get a little bit exited thinking things could actually work out for us this time. If things work out for us and this possibility develops into reality, I'll make sure to fill you in then. *sigh*, I guess it's just nice to think of what could be.
