When 2019 Gets Warmer


Twenty eighteen was an absolute whirlwind.  We entered the year halfway through our Airman's first deployment and four months later and just two days before his return, I quit my job which started a five month investigation into the work environment I was subjected to (which eventually ruled in my favor).  I stayed home with my two girls during Summer break then got a part-time job at a non-profit and that September found out that we were expecting baby number three.  

Unlike my previous pregnancies, this pregnancy kept me bedridden with Hyperemesis Gravidarum and in December, I quit my job to stay home full time to cope with the HG and be available again for my children.  So with all of that positively behind me, and my HG subsiding, I happily started planning the nursery, finishing my book, and started sewing again.  We thought we had everything falling into place and planned out, until my phone rang this last Friday morning and the voice on the other end immediately asked if I was sitting down.

I was just finishing applying my make-up when the familiar ringtone song, "In case you didn't know" played from my phone.  Jon's voice immediately sounded anxious.

"We got orders."

These were the words I wasn't anywhere near believing we would hear anytime soon.  We have only been at our first duty station for about two and a half years, and we had cleared our dream sheet awaiting the chance for overseas orders.  Instead, we found out that not only are we moving, but we are set to move a month after our baby girl is born!

So throw out those plans to set up a nursery because it's about to be packed up and relocated to the warm State of Nevada.  Yup, we're trading in cool Colorado for warm Nevada in just about four months.

With all that setting in, I've got a few blog posts lined up to share, including PCS Binder Free Downloads and all things moving with the military.  So whether you're reading along to see what we've been up to, or joining for the military insight, I've got you covered.  Here's to another fun adventure!
