Deployment Update

NavyGuy's deployment has been delayed until May-ish.

Rumors started on Saturday, but we got confirmation today.

On the one hand...
- he won't leave for almost two more months
- he'll be around for his and my birthday
- we'll probably get to bring Tally home from the trainer together

On the other...
- everyone was physically, mentally, and emotionally prepared for the separation, and now, we'll have to go through the process all over again
- backing up the leave date means backing up the return date... so now we're bumping into Thanksgiving and possibly Christmas

Bottom line, there's nothing to be done about it - it's not like the Pentagon called for my opinion.

Ah, the needs of the Navy...

Good Lord...congrats I guess?!?!?! This is all too nutty. Hope you're hanging in there okay, give me a call when you get a chance.

Enjoy celebrating your birthdays together! I can understand the mixed feelings, though, and why it's not necessarily the "reprieve" that civilian friends might assume it is. Dragging things out longer than necessary truly sucks.
