Rainy day.. coffee.. and big news!

It is one of those wonderful days.... where it's nice and cool out.. the rain has been coming down since last night.. I've been sipping my coffee, and catching up on everyone's blogs.. and, while I feel a little crummy (think I have come down with a cold or something), I find myself smiling and really looking forward to new things.

Now, we are going to ignore the fact that, that there was a very long sentence, and probably all kinds of grammatically incorrect.... and we are going to skip to the fun news that I have been promising to share. We also are going to ignore the fact that I am sitting here with hair dye on my head.. and that I am in my pj's... you cannot see me right now anyway. :P Nor can anyone else, thankfully!

So.... the news!

As a lot of you know, Sir has been a soldier for all of His adult life, He enlisted straight out of High School. And, of course that means He has been a soldier for all of our married time together. (A good 19 years now!) He has been wonderful at His job.. a true leader, and good at what He does. But, in His time in, His body has taken a heck of a beating. Jumping out of airplanes (That are in perfect flying condition, I still can't wrap my head around that one!).. and all the other crazy things He has done.. His body has had enough. And He himself, is ready to retire and move onto other things.

Well, after two years of Him fighting and pushing to get His medical packet pushed through... He finally got medically retained. We are almost done! He will soon be medically retired! We have been given the gift of starting the next chapter. We have many plans.. one of the biggest being, us moving out of this cold state.

With all the hardware and damage in my back, I need somewhere warmer. My pain management Doctor has shown me what all the surgeries and condition has done to my body.. and that my pain levels will sadly never get better, only worse as I get older. Being that I am already in a lot of pain for 36 years old.. that tells me that I really need to start finding better ways to do things with my body. Eliminate the things that I can, that really up my pain levels.

I am still stubborn about trying to push myself through school, and now it will be a bit easier. Between Sir's pensions, and disability claims and such.. He won't have to work, He can be in the work shop, or do whatever it is that He wants to do for the first time in His life. He so deserves that.

A lot of changes coming up, and we are both so ready for them. I have enjoyed being an Army wife, I have always been so proud of what He does. I have happily followed and supported Him, and we have had a decent life being in. But, it is now time to move on to new things. New places, new people.. a new start. I am so.. excited, and I had to come share this news with you all before I exploded!

Coming up next - the over due follow up post on craving punishment!
