I guess its about time I updated this.
It's been just over 2 weeks since Matt's left. 2 down, 50 to go. Shane and I have settled in up north in the cold New England weather. Can't say I missed it although looking at DC's winter this year, I sure am glad we aren't there!
Matt reached his final destination earlier this week and is also settling in. His job puts him on 6 hour shifts so he calls when/if he can. Contact has been sporadic. Sometimes every other day, sometimes every day, sometimes every 3 days. Internet is available for $100 a hook-up. I am still in shock they are trying to charge that much. You would think the least the Army could do is provide free or close to free internet for our guys. They are underpaid and under appreciated enough. He is doing well otherwise, missing home and his baby like crazy but we'll get through this like we did our last one. We're strong and are fully committed to our marriage.
No news on R&R yet. Hopefully we'll know more in a month or two. I'm already counting down the days till we take that long awaited drive to the airport.
School started for me this week and although my classes are pretty basic, I'm enjoying having something to do and keep me busy. I'm hoping to be able to jump right back into classes after this block but the Department of Defense cut off my main funding for this first year of school so I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford to go back until July when financial aid kicks in. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
That's all for now! More to come!
