It's official, Internet. I am going to be a Navy wife again! Jason got a call from his recruiter today, who said that Jason was greenlighted to go back in at his prior rate and rank. That means that he'll go back in with the same job (aviation technician) and salary he had when he got out in March 2007.
We could not be happier. The next step is for him to go get sworn in and sign on the dotted line. He'll also work out a timeline for going to the transient personnel unit near Chicago to await his orders. Within a month or two we'll know where he'll be stationed, and where we're going to live for the next four years. It is all so very exciting, and gives me such a feeling of hope that our lives and our happiness won't be swallowed up by the black hole that is Massachusetts after all.
Life is good. I have a Tofurky with carrots, potatoes, and celery roasting in the oven, squash on the stove waiting to be mashed, and champagne chilling in the refrigerator. Oh yeah, and there's rum, too. It wouldn't be a celebration without rum.
Happy new year! Love, us.
