    so I am all nervous. He seems to handle these things much better than I do. [​IMG] Just got off the phone with him and I never understand how he takes it so calm! We are raising 3 kids on enlisted salary........every promotion counts!!!!!! I REALLY hope Tractor Supply gets the chicks tomorrow (that were supposed to come today) so I can spend my day worrying over them and NOT over how my husband is doing!!!! *SIGH*

    I feel your pain! I remember when my son was studying for that test. Fortunately he has almost a photographic memory and is calm under fire. It is much better to fret over the chickens! [​IMG]

    Yes, my husband does too....it amazes me. I have seen someone walk into his office and say "I need a copy of that ...whatever......." and he will go to the depths of hell and pick up one tiny slip of paper he has not looked at in months. However, I once dyed my hair red.......BRIGHT red (normally fairly dark brown). After about 3 hours I said "don't you see anything different".....he FINALLY said "oh, you haven't always been a red head"!!!! [​IMG] Men amaze me!!!! Yes, I NEED those babies to worry over. LOL

    [​IMG] My husband is like that. He is a retired CSM from the ARNG. Don't know how he managed it some days! [​IMG] My DS, on the other hand will notice the slightest change. He only comes home once every other year, and he actually notices if something on a windowsill is new! I can't slip anything past him. Amazing. [​IMG]

    luvmychicknkids I hear ya. My hubby was medically retired in Sept. 06 from Special Forces...he fought tooth and nail the whole time to stay in. 2 years of battling...all the way to Washington DC. He was calm and I was ripping Colonels apart out of frustration.

    Raising kids on an enlisted salary is tough for sure. Just let him be calm and do his thing and you focus on the fuzzy butts coming your way. [​IMG]

    I went from jet black (my normal) to dark auburn for our anniversary one year. He had been deployed for 18 months, came home and walked past me at green ramp. I put fingers to mouth and whistled, yelled... "HEY SGT!" he turned, jumped and said "Oh hi...what have you done to your hair?" LMAO

    I can feel with you. my hubby is a E7 right now. I was just running around getting his uniform dry cleaned and updated for some new DA pictures. Whats your husbands MOS? Mine is a 79R (permanent) but he used to be a 19D. He is in almost 12 years and lookking to get his MSG this year. Is your hubby in school right now?
    oh and i can also feel with you with the enlisted salary and three kids , i have three myself. And since we live due to recruiting out in the civilian world we bought our first house.

    [​IMG] Is your husband a Marine? When I hear Master Sgt. I think Marine. My son is in the Marines, he is only 21, joined when he was just 1 week shy of turning 18. He is a Sgt. He's planning on getting out this year and go to college. I kind of wish he would stay in as he's got it made right where he is at, but he's growing up and has to learn on his own what is right and what is wrong. Decisions, decisions, decisons.

    We come from a long line of Military folks. Proud to be a Marine Mama.

    Best of luck to your hubby. My cousin is a Major in the USArmy. He started out enlisted. That makes a huge difference. He has worked his bum off to become the best at what he does. Now, he works in the "secret squirrel stuff" that protects us all. God Bless our Military Men and Women!!!!!! They are the best in the World.
