Sigh of Relief

I think this deployment situation is all figured out. My boss here at my unit got in contact with my old unit, and apparently they were trying to pull a fast one. I'm a medic, so I'm in big demand. They wanted me off their books to fill the slot with a new medic, but since they couldn't, they were trying to get me back again. "Too late!" That's what the big guys at the top said about the matter. This puts a great deal of ease in my mind now. I'm still unnerved about the whole thing though. I just won't be at ease until I see that plane fly away, and I'm waving goodbye.

Wow, this sounds extremely stressful. When will you know for sure that you get to stay at the school? I am really enjoying your blog. Looked through the holiday mini; didn't see anything that really spoke to me as a "must have", but I might get the snowflake set that was in the catalog last year. Definitely want to use some of the new "in colors" for my cards.

Glad things worked out for you!! I have one more thing that will make your day. You are the winner of my blog give away. Nobody guessed the colors, so your name was drawn from the hat (glass jar).

Congratulations. Email your address to TheScrapStudio@aol.com.
Thanks.

Glad its all worked out for you. My dh and his twin brother are in the Marines. His brother just got sent to Cali. Hardly any notice at all and the unit he is going to will be deploying to Iraq. How scary. I'll keep you in my thoughts. That's the one thing with the military. nothing is certain and nothing promised is usually kept. lol! I guess its par for the course. You get used to it. It's just hard sometimes.

Hang onto my hand-I have my legs wound around the desk and I am not letting go. My BIL went 6 times (he is speical ops) and finally, after that in 2 years and 20 years all together he said no more. no begging allowed. He is only 38 and was a cop for two weeks and left that as it was too scary for his family, so he works minimum wage in a factory but he is safe now.

Good for you! I'll keep my fingers crossed. We just moved from Campbell about 6 months ago but not before my husband did 2 tours to Iraq with 101st. I loved the area but was glad to get away from the deployments that being there inevitably brings. You are in my thoughts! :)

I was so distressed when I just now read your other post, but this sounds better. I can imagine that after something as unnerving as that you'll be on edge for a while. I hope you can relax again pretty soon. Take care and don't let them pull something like that on you again! It sounds like you've got someone on your side, at least.
