After all the rain and all the storm, we are getting our gift for surviving. Dh got his first full paycheck today and wow it was pretty :). We are making more in 2 wks than we did in a whole month in the army. We got excellent insurance (got to try it out today. DD has been sick. Well insurance picked up the whole tab today for her ped appt, and more than half of her 2 rx). Life is good.
The kids and I move out at the end of the month into our new place. After 9 months of living with people I cant tell you how sweet that sounds, we are paying our bills again, going to buy a new car, and everything is going in the right direction.
I dont mean to sound shallow but after living with below bare minimum for so long, having an extra $ or 2 in your wallet after everything is paid feels good.
Of course it will take a couple months for everything to go back to normal (gosh I need new bras ;) but we are moving in the right direction.
Hubby is finally proud of himself again for providing for his family, he is doing a job he loves, he is safe, doesnt have to leave the base, he got a fridays, latte and ice cream, and skype with us anytime he wants.
Life is so good and its about damn time :)
