The only thing predictable in the army is unpredictability.


You know how I told you all that we were moving to upstate New York this summer?

That's not so much happening anymore.

I walked through the door an hour ago to have Will look at me and say, "Kentucky or North Carolina?"


Apparently the guy who makes assignments e-mailed Will this morning and gave him two options: Korea or Fort Bragg, NC. He took Fort Bragg, because if overseas was an option we would have taken Germany. But then he found out one of the guys in his class is assigned to Fort Campbell, KY but really would prefer Fort Bragg. So, if we want to trade assignments, he was willing. But that pretty much meant we had to decide right then, over Will's lunch hour.

Luckily, I have a friend already living at Fort Campbell, so I called her up to get her opinion. And since we've heard nothing but bad things about Fort Bragg, we decided to go with Fort Campbell.

So, Kentucky here we come. Unless the army changes their mind.


P.S. Several of you have e-mailed asking how the medical tests went this week. The thyroid scan showed that my thyroid "is sick" but that's all I know. I'll see my doctor about the results in a couple of weeks. The ultrasound to check out the mutant lump was canceled this morning and rescheduled for next Friday. So, no news on anything yet.

P.P.S. Yesterday was Will's birthday. He had me make cupcakes for him to bring to school. I figured if a 35 year old is going to bring cupcakes to school for his birthday I'd better make sure they had sprinkles.
