And so it begins...

Well, he's at his flight, and has been for the last few days in-processing. It's been a hard couple of days, dealing with trying to finish up the little things in the house, playing mom (suddenly, now that we live in the same town, my step-daughter has been here every night but 3, which is fine, I really don't mind, but it puts a stop to my 'hanging pictures at midnight' routine...), and doing doctors appointments. So far we have met his flight chief and two of the other recruiters that are here. I was surprised at their 'uniforms'. After we spent a bunch of money trying to get his blues perfect, and enough of them so he had one for every day, THEY DON'T WEAR THEM! I guess it's a temporary thing, because of the shooting that happened down in Little Rock, Arkansas, but one guy was in an AF t-shirt and jeans, the other in a white AF polo, and plaid golf shorts. NICE!

Hopefully when he gets home we can figure out this TriCare Prime-Remote stuff out (anyone with experience, HELP!!!) I think it wouldn't be so bad if I weren't dealing with all these infertility issues. I have such a wonderful doctor, but now that we moved he's 2 1/2 hours away, so now I don't really know what to do, and haven't gotten much help from the 888 number. I guess that's tomorrows task.

I'm exhausted, and under tornado warnings, or watches, or whatever.... the one where they've seen a tornado. I should probably figure that out hunh!


  1. My husband has been in recruiting for the Army for 12 yrs now. I look forward to checking back with you.


  2. Wow, how did he do it for 12 years? It's only a 4 year assignment for us, well, if he's doing good then he can extend for a year, but I would love to finish out the career here!

  3. i'm an AF recruiter's wife as well. my hubby is a flight chief now.. but i remember well all the struggles, etc. i am happy to answer any questions you may have.. or just be a support for you. we may not all be in one squardron.. but we are definitely in one small family!! :D
