And away we go----weeeeeee!

I'm at lunch today. Ring, Ring. Hi honey....what? When?

That's pretty much how it all began.

Apparently, the man in blue received an email today. Basically, it said pick your new unit before it picks you. Of course, that doesn't mean even what he picked will be where we go.

And, the fun begins.

He shares with me the limited options. My, oh, my. They weren't any of the places we had contemplated so far. DH guesstimated what would be coming open this year. Sadly, none of those places were on this particular list.

What's a girl to do? Well, I asked him to tell me again, and I would call him back. I go through the options in my head. What's the weather like there? How are the schools here? Oh, gee, I don't know because we have all of fifteen seconds to choose.

Okay, so that's an exaggeration, but we wanted to get a response back asap. So, he picked after we discussed the pros and cons in warp speed, and he submitted.

Now, we wait.

As a side note, experience tells me I shouldn't get ahead of myself. Once upon a time, the man in blue had orders cut for a particular cutter and was in pipeline training only to have the orders pulled and given a new set. Yep, that's the fun and exhilaration of it all folks.

Away we go!

We just received word of our new home a month ago. I can tell you, I'm still in shock and utter sadness. My hubby still has pipeline training before going to his cutter...but after reading your final thoughts on this post I'm crossing my fingers that they decide to send us elsewhere....I know the chances are very very small but a girl can dream right?
