Terminal Leave

Today was J's last day before his terminal leave begins.  He'll still get paid up through April, but as of tonight, he doesn't have to report to work anymore.  He is signing up with the Air National Guard.  It's 1 weekend a month, and 2 weeks a year, and we would retain our current health and dental insurance, and he would still be able to work towards his retirement.  And of course he is looking for something full time in the civilian world.  It's sort of nerve wrecking and exciting at the same time.  Something sort of ironic... he's scheduled to be promoted 3 days before his terminal leave ends.  I hope he finds something full time soon, because I think I will go nuts if he's at home with us all day everyday for too long.

Lots of other thoughts whirling around my brain this month.  I feel like I've been doing a lot of navel gazing.  Which doesn't have to be a bad thing, necessarily.  I can never decide how to put my thoughts in order for a blog post though.

B goes back to the allergist next week.  Since last time, we've discovered she can't eat spinach or red bell peppers.  She is doing well with broccoli and squashes though.

R's doing pretty well.  Finally beginning to make the connection between letters and their sounds.


  1. Hey,

    Tell Joe that R and I say Congratulations! I know he's ready to be done with the AF full time..

    What is Navel Gazing?

  2. Oh my, what a huge and terrifying step!

  3. hugs! It is scary. our plan's aren't in stone yet but 75% chance that he will not be reenlisting and he was looking at ranch properties in colorado... absolutely frightening here too, and we still have a year and a few months to think about it.
