Army life

Well, it looks as though we will be moving yet again (this will be about move #6 for me in the last 3 years). James was told (doesn't have it in paperwork yet so things can still change) last week that he'll be moved up to the Battalion level (one level above where he's at now) staff job starting as of 16 April, so basically yesterday. However he has to stay at the Company level until sometime next month. He was supposed to get orders by the end of last week, we still haven't seen them...the battalion that he's "joining" is moving across Germany, 4 to 5 hrs from where we are now to a place called Bamberg. We are told it's in the Bavarian part of Germany. So it looks like our moving time could be as soon as sometime next month or as late as July, we won't really know until he actually gets orders in hand, right now it's just word of mouth.

I know God has His reasons for moving us AGAIN and so I take a little comfort in that, however right now it's all way more uncomforting than comforting. Moving with the military is such a pain in the buttockus (yes i know that's not how you spell it) 'cause they always end up breaking something. Don't get me wrong, I could care less about all of out material things, it's just the process of claiming the broken items is a huge headache for me and I'm STILL working on the stuff from when we moved here last February! AND I have to get that done before we move again and then I'll just do it all over again 'cause I know they are gonna break more stuff! GRRR, I really hate this! It's not just the move it's how the army works overall, there's no logic involved what's so ever! I just hope James' job gets less stressful for him when he actually gets to work in this staff job, 'cause we are both really hating right now. Plus there's the looming fact that he could deploy at a moments notice for not just a year now but 15 months or MORE is the standard! Whoever made that decision and still wonders why they can't keep the leadership in the army is a damn fool! *SIGH* And there's not a damn thing any of us can do about it. Satan is having a field day (more like years) with us right now.

On top of all this because we are so far away from everyone we love I was unable to attend the funeral of a very much loved great uncle of mine. He was the only living relative on my mom's side of the family, aside from my mom herself, and was kinda like a grandfather to me and I couldn't be there with my family. This sucks! I have to stop 'cause if i keep going I'm really going to loose it. Please pray for us and hopefully God will hear your prayers 'cause He doesn't seem to hear mine...
