Its been a while...

I fell off of the blogosphere for a while. Well I'm back with much to talk about. Its been a crazy couple of months...between work and Kason and trying to just keep up with everyday life. I had a few hiccups in this Army life of mine and I almost made the choice to leave the Army. But in the end I decided to stay in...give the Army a 3rd shot at another duty station. Korea itself is an AMAZING country with lots of history behind it and I like it here...however being a soldier in this country is a whole different story. I HATE it. I HATE my unit and almost everyone in it...its been an extremely tough (almost) 2 years. I think God's the only reason I still have my sanity. I truelly hope that my next unit doesnt oporate like they do here.

"My next duty station" "My next unit" I keep saying those 2 things are any of your minds curious to know where Chapter 3 of this Army life is?! Well...heres a hint...

Do you recognize those Ruby slippers??? If you tap them 3 times where do they bring you???

If you guessed KANSAS...your absolutly correct! Kason and I are moving to Fort Riley Kansas in ecstattic, can you tell...

Im going to an aviation unit. BAD NEWS tho...they are on the deployment list and I will more than likely be going to Afghanistan in October or November...GOOD NEWS...It will only be a 9-10 month deployment. It's a bitter sweet feeling to me...when I first joined I wanted so badly to deploy and do something for this country but at the same time I have Kason now and I dont want to be apart from him for any amount of time...he is my heart and my entire world and I know that it will be an extremely hard 9-10 months without him. But I'm trying to stay positive. It will be good for me and a story to tell my grandkids one day.

Other than all that I just dont know what else to say about our lives over the last 5 much has happend. The holidays where pretty good. Spent them all with my friend Kim's family. Went out for New Years for the first time in a couple years. My birthday was a blast and I got to celebrate it with some new friends and a friend that I made back in Basic Training. Kasons Birthday was a bunch of awesomeness too. We had a small celebration with his Aunski in September when she came to visit, his party in October because lots of his friends where leaving korea in November, and then a celebration with mommy on his actual birthday...the celebrating went on for 3 months. He got lots of new toys and goodies! Gosh I just dont know what else to now I think Ill let the pictures do the talking...hope you enjoy. :)
