I am certain that some are familiar with my family situation, if not, brief rundown. Hubby is active duty Air Force. Becasue of health issues with our youngest son we have lived apart for the past 3 years. The entire 3 years we have tried to get him an overseas assignment so we could get our base of choice upon his return which would allow my family to live together again....we could choose a location suitable to his health problems. Anyway, they have not had sufficient manning to allow him to leave until now!!! Dec. 10th my hubby will be starting work in Turkey for 15 months. When he returns....looks like we have chosen San Antonio. We have time to sell the house, let the kids wrap up things with friends, convince my aging mother to move herself and the 10 y/o twins she is raising who NEED my family with us (NOT same house just close by), and be able to take my chickens with. I realize this still means well over another year before my family is together again, but we will be. Having a time frame and KNOWING I will get to snuggle up next to my husband every night before long makes all the difference in the world. Just wanted to share my good news!!!
