Is he or isn't he?

So my hubby is leaving for NTC in Cali next month (for all you civilians, NTC is National Training Center in Ft. Irwin, CA...A.K.A..."the sandbox") It kinda makes me wonder if he is going back to Iraq for the third time. They say they are, they say they aren't. I do know that if a unit is going to NTC it kinda means that they are getting prepared for something....what? I don't know.

As an army wife I am prepared for anything. I have plans for what I am going to do when something happens, thats just what a military wife is supposed to do. I can't sit and worry and then if and when the time comes say "Damn, what the hell am I supposed to do?". No. That is not how we are supposed to be.

I think I will enjoy my month vacation with no ESPN, although having two kids by myself, I really don't want to think about at this time. I am supposed to be training for my UHaul job but one of the downloads is giving me grief. Maybe its a sign that I shouldn't be working either for them or working at home period. Lord knows we do need the extra cash.

Speaking of military pay, I am hoping the government (and most democrats) realize that we DON'T make a lot and we are either at or below the poverty line. Hell, we all pretty much qualify for WIC, food stamps, and welfare unless we are officers or married to officers.

Well, hopefully I will find out soon what is happening with us.

Oh yeah, review my post and get paid from PPP and tell me what you think of this!

No kidding on the whole pay thing...I'm an Army wife too and am very nervous about the upcoming election. I really hope we don't get the sh** end of the bargain.

I'm not gonna say that your hubby isn't getting deployed, but I do know that a couple of friends whose units NTC'd didn't end up deploying, they were just maintaining their readiness...

Anyway, good luck with everything, love the blog. I'll be back.
