I was just informed that the NAVY is incredibly stupid. Thats right, I said stupid. When we moved here, we were originally supposed to be here for 4 years. That meant until Sept. 2008. When my husband was promoted to second class, it changed to his only being needed on the USS Misery for 3 years instead of 4. And when we last checked, oh 2 months ago, we were informed that our move date would be August 2007. So why you ask is the Navy so very stupid and moronic and a lot of other words I am not allowed to say? Well, Dh was going to check what had just opened up for orders the other day, because that is what we were supposed to be doing, and some how it was back to 4 years. That is correct. If they have their info right, I am STUCK in this God-forsaken state until Sept. 2008. They will be at sea this year (2007) for 290 days. In October they are going out for another LOOOONNNGGG deployment. And I get to be here with a brand new baby. This not what it was supposed to be like. All his paperwork up until today said August 2007. So I am ANGRY, I don't even know how to express how angry I am right now. We were supposed to be getting ready to move, to go to Shore Duty. DH was going to be home more often, I was going to be able to really get my business off the ground, my oldest would be getting ready to start pre-k. And I AM NOT SUPPOSED TO BE HERE FOR ANOTHER YEAR.
Supposedly DH is supposed to be able to make some sort of plea to get off the ship early, that it would be in the best interest of the ship to let him go early. But it is not usually successful. So unless they find some sort of loophole in the paperwork, about how because he became Second Class and the ship doesn't need him and they made a mistake, that is my only hope.
I know some of you probably are not being very sympathetic right now. So what, I am stuck here for another year. Well you try having your husband/best friend go out for six months, come home tell you that you will be moving in a year for Shore Duty which means he will be home, and then get all excited, and prepared for this, get pregnant with our third, and then be told that not only are you stuck in the place you can't stand the most, and he will be going out again. AGAIN. It sucks when he is gone, the boys miss him. I miss him. It makes it harder to run a business when you have 3 little ones at home. So I have every right to be ANGRY and sad. It makes me just want to quit. Not my family, but my business. Just quit, how can I keep it running without help? It is still technically in the startup phases, so there is not really enough for a full time nanny, and I refuse to put my kids in daycare. I need prayer and answers. What are we supposed to do?

Oh, Shayna, I am so so sorry. I wish I was there to give you a big hug and take you out for a Pert Plus drink. You do have every right to be angry and upset. I will pray very hard that your dh finds a loophole or that God can give you both some kind of direction and peace.

I'm sorry. =(
