deployment is official

It is official. My husband received his orders this week. He is going to Afghanistan for a little over a year. At least there is no question now, and we can work on the game plan. **** I often will link to things on Amazon.

Deployment is mostly official

Regarding my husbands deployment, I guess that Afghanistan won. He hasn’t received orders yet, but he is definitely scheduled to go to Afghanistan. I am bummed on many levels, both deep and shallow. We will miss him of course, and a year plus is a very long time. He is supposed to head to an army base in Kansas at the end of May for training. He is in the Navy reserves as a supply officer, and is being pulled {Read More}

another possible deployment

Ok, so my husband just got notified that he is being deployed in May to Afghanistan for a year. The head honcho for the other unit that wants to deploy him to Iraq is mad and is fighting with the head honcho for the Afghanistan one. We just have to sit back I guess and wait to see who will win. We are voting for the Iraq one. Less dangerous, and shorter time frame. What a pain. **** I often {Read More}

job situation

Ok, this is going to be a convoluted scenario, but it might be interesting later to look back and remember how it all went down. My husband works as a bond trader for a large bank. This bank was failing a few months ago, and was bought by a bigger bank. Well, some people were kept on with the bigger bank, some people were let go quickly, and my husband and his small group (6 guys) were given until May {Read More}

I will keep updating. **** I often will link to things on Amazon. These are usually affiliate links that will pay me a couple of dollars if you happen to buy something while there.

husband’s job

Since I started this blog as a communication vector regarding my husband who may be deployed, I thought that I should include some information about him. Some people may wonder about his current job seeing as he works in the field of the stock market (he is a bond trader), and he works for one of the large banks that was having trouble and was bought out. He did work for Washington Mutual’s broker dealer. Now since the buy-out, he {Read More}

pre-deployment

So, My husband just found out a couple of days ago that he is going to be deployed for 9 months. He is in the Navy reserve, and has only been deployed one other time in 2003. I thought that blogging might be a good way to remember his deployment and to be able to keep him updated on our lives while he is gone. We will see if I actually keep it up. It is the end of March {Read More}
