What's best for her...decisions..

Trying to figure out what's best for you kids can be so hard! Right now we're working on trying to figure out where to get stationed next. We've been talking about Hawaii or 29 Palms, but lately I've started considering San Diego too. I haven't talked it over with Hunny yet, going to try and get a feel tonight. I figure in SD we'll have the beach like Hawaii but we'll still be in the states so it'll be easier to visit family and have them visit us. Also, Hawaii has year round school and they start on July 21st, so my hope of getting her in at the beginning of the school year wouldn't work, there's no way we could get there by then. So at least in the states school starts either end of August or beginning of September. Much easier on us. Also, my sister, Yella, is in San Diego so it would be nice to be close to her for a while. I have a friend in both the north side of Pendleton (San Clemente) and one in the southside (Oceanside) and they both love it. There should be a better selection of schools there too. I'm really hoping Hunny will be open minded about it. Please utter a prayer for us. I think I've mentioned San Diego as a possibility before and I don't think he liked the idea. I don't really remember why, so we shall see. I know things will work out how they're supposed to and I know we have another month before we can even start to figure this out. I'm just a planner, at least in my head. I like to know what's going on, guess this wasn't the best life to choose then. Oh well, I must have faith. Oh, and a praise, kind of. The way things are going with our bill paying, when Eric gets his re-enlistment bonus we should be able to pay off both cars and our smallest credit card. YEAH! We're on our way!

I dated a guy in 29 Palms and it was sooo boring. I thought I might die.

And for Ryelie's sake, I beg of you not to move to Hawaii. The schools there are terrible.

As far as San Diego goes, there is a lot to be said for being next to family...

My sister Rachel is stationed in Hawaii with her husband Jon (Army)and they actually kind of like it. They say the worst part is being so far away from the family, but its fun to be in Hawaii.

She is a teacher in a middle school there, so if you want to ask her any questions about life or school in Hawaii, just let me know! Im sure she'd be glad to share.

Def. praying for you concerning this. JAPAN !!!;) ok, I will stop being selfish. Do you really want to go BACK to the deuce niner ;) that's what we used to call it when I was "in" ;) San Diego is at least closer to stores and things. It is beautiful. We really enjoyed Camp Pendleton. I am sure the command at San Diego is pretty bad for little "political games" though. Hmmmm decisions decisions. Has "hunny" considered MSG? I hear everyone LOVES it.
