We have a plan!!

Well, it looks like we finally have a plan for the next year or so. It's still unofficial so it's possible that it could change. But for now, this is what we're looking at.

As soon as medical declares Josh LIMDU (limited duty, though there is some issue of if and when the Captain will do this), his current orders will be cancelled, and he will be given PCS (permanent change of station) orders to Pensacola for 6 months. The detailer will continue to give him orders there in 6 month increments until he is healed. Then he will have to negotiate for new orders. Since they are PCS orders, they will pay for me and our stuff to go out there with him, and he will get housing allowance based on Pensacola's rate.

Josh graduates from his school in Friday and has a meeting with his surgeon on Monday. Assuming everything works out the way it's supposed to at the moment, Josh will then take leave for a week or so and fly back to TX. We will load up everything that is left in the house and drive back to FL! I am so excited about the possibility of seeing Josh again in about a week!!!

The only major issue now is selling our house. I don't know how we're going to afford to rent a place in FL while still paying our mortgage here. We had thought about waiting here until it sells, but we really want to be together soon. Besides, I need to be able to be there to take care of him after his surgery, and I had already given notice to Sarah's daycare and they have already filled her spot so we wont' have childcare after the 12th.

So please continue to pray for us as we're still navigating these unknowns.

Cycle -1

AF has come to visit. This is my first real Flo since getting pregnant. I'd forgotten about cramps! I'm calling this cycyle -1 because Josh is still in Pensacola for training. His class is supposed to be over at the end of the month.

The problem though, is he re-dislocated his shoulder. The Navy doctor says that he is now non-deployable. We're supposed to be moving to WA after his class, but being non-deployable means he can't go to the ship. So they're going to do surgery again to fix his shoulder. Then he'll have about 6 months of recovery time when he's LIMDU (limited duty). We're not sure if they're going to postpone our orders and leave him in Florida until he's better or if they're going to change our orders completely. If they change our orders, they might send him on to wherever that will be and have them do the surgery there or still keep him in FL for now. Regardless, they're picking up our household goods next week, and we're still trying to sell our house. If he's stuck in FL, I'm going to go there to help him after his surgery. Or he may take some leave to come here the first of March before his surgery. I really hate this not knowing!!!!

So if you're into praying, we could definitely use some during this time of confusion.

It's time!

Josh and I have talked about it, and I'm getting my IUD removed next week! Of course, he's out of town for a couple more months and then we're moving. But I'd like to get my cycle back on track before we officially try. This is going to be an interesting TTC journey as Josh will be going back out to sea so we'll have to take a 6 month break in the fall. I know I don't post here that often anymore, but that'll probably change as we progress. I like having a place to write that stuff that is way TMI for social networking sites. But I know you ladies get it :)
