I've been crying all morning. I found out this morning where Josh will be stationed for his 1-year AEGD (Army "Advanced Education in General Dentistry" Residency). I'm not telling, as I am in complete shock and need time to let it sink in. Suffice it to say that I never thought that I would ever live in that state.

It's not that I have a problem with the state, exactly. Actually, on the contrary, I know nothing about it. I hear that it's even a really great place to live, though people may only be trying to console me. It just wasn't supposed to happen this way. How it was supposed to happen, I don't really know, either. Just not this way.

Maybe I'll be excited in a few days and I'll let you know then.

When I'm done crying.


  1. I'm guessing you didn't get your first choice? We wish your family all the best. You'll be great wherever you go! (And, you're always welcome in Houston if you need a vacation.)

  2. oh know it can't be that bad, I'm sure once you move there you will end up loving it- I really want to know where you are going. Good luck digesting it.

  3. {{{hugs}}}
    Let us know when you can. 'Till then, here's some hugs for you.

  4. change is hard and change that you weren't totally expecting is even harder.

    In a few days it will sound better. And if it doesn't...well then eat a brownie and give it a week or two more.

  5. That was seriously a cliffhanger. . . Where is it?

  6. Don't leave me hanging like that!!! How long did you say it is for?? Don't worry. You guys are awesome. You'll make friends wherever you go and be fine! If it makes you feel any better, I moved to NEW MEXICO!!!! And the scary part is that I moved there by CHOICE!!!! YIKES! I'm sure you'll be okay, once you've let it sink in. Take a few days, eat some chocolate, and pray.Not much else you can do.

  7. Has it digested enough that you'll join me in my happy dance???
    Okay, then forget that I mentioned dancing, would ya...

  8. We will go to lunch. I really like Ft. Sill but that was clear back in 1991-1993 when you were like two years old =)
