Goodbye, 2008.

Hello 2009!

Not that I'm totally excited for this next year. Brandon leaves on January 9th, and he starts BOLC II on January 11th in Fort Benning, Georgia. That goes until February 28th, and then I visit for a week. On March 8th, he starts his Infantry Officer Basic Course, or IOBC or BOLC III, and that goes three months until June 8th. Then he has to go to Ranger School, which will start in July or August. Then he'll be home when he's done!! But that's like 9 to 10 months of him being away, with us not seeing each other that much.

Me, I have to finish school in May. Then I go to LDAC for a month to be assessed as a cadet. There I'll get commissioned. I won't find out my branch until October, so I have no clue what I'll do until then. Maybe find an easy job? Then I won't know when I'll do my training!!

So many unknowns... it's hard for my organized brain to comprehend.

2008 was an interesting year. I planned a wedding and got married June 1st. I turned 21 in April. We had a honeymoon in Mexico in June, and Brandon left for Fort Lewis for two months right afterwards. I worked two jobs that summer and got so exhausted because of it! I became an MS4 in ROTC and worked as the PAO. I got surgery on both my feet for my plantar fasciitis and am healing well. I wrote my senior thesis and had one of the best semester, in regards to grades, I've had in college (I got three A's and one A-, bleh). My nephew Grant was born on Valentine's Day, and my other nephew Blake turned two on November 3rd. Jessica went to college and Shannon moved to North Dakota. I went to Seattle for the first time.

There's so much more I just can't think!! We'll have to see what next year brings.
