Adventures

The other day I blogged about the possibility of my husband being deployed to the local military hospital, among other things. Well, about two days later, Levi got a call telling him his deployment had been changed to a year long deployment to New Jersey. While I don’t want to freak anyone out at this point, I think it is only fair that I publish this to let people know what is going on in my life right now.

We don’t yet know all of the details, but at the moment it’s looking like I may be moving to New Jersey with him. We haven’t yet found out if he will be able to receive an allowance for housing while he is over there. We have a lot of decisions we need to make within the next few days, and it already seems a bit daunting. I’ve never had to move my life to the other side of the country, and if we do decide to go we will be driving there. (We would be reimbursed if we fly, but the car will be too expensive to send over. Also, because the military does not recognize same-sex unions my plane ticket could not be reimbursed.)

At this moment, I am not entirely sure what my future holds but I know it’s going to be an interesting journey. If we go to New Jersey, I am going to miss all of my friends and family but I feel like it might be a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to live on the east coast. We already have our lives set up here in Washington, something that we will easily be able to return home to at the end of the year.

Adventure time? I think so.
