Oh boy! Yesterday was an exceptionally exciting day! Mostly. Hubster finally received the list of the slots that will be available when he finishes up the Career Course. Although it’s only a list of what’s available, it was exciting to see where we could be heading in a few months. We’ll have to create our wish list in the next couple of days and submit it to the Assignment Officer.
I spent the better part of the evening and afternoon researching some of the spots that will most likely be at the top of our list. I was excited to see that there are three Command spots available in Hawaii, but after researching the pet quarantine policy, I’m slightly concerned. There is also availability in Germany, but after visiting the post website, I’m kind of discouraged. I think I might be too lazy to try to read German words mixed in with English.
One of the places that I was kind of hoping to go, Fort Carson, Colorado, wasn’t on the list at all. Even though I knew not to get my hopes up, I really really wanted to go there so that we could have the opportunity to buy another house while the market is still good for that. For now it’s looking like we’ll have a pretty good chance of ending up OCONUS (outside Continental US), which is exciting and scary! And since Hubster has relatively low dwell time (amount of time since he’s been home from overseas), it’s more likely that we’ll get something at the top of our list.
I’m excited to get our list figured out. Once we figure out our top five, I’ll be sure to share! Hopefully it won’t be too long until we get actual orders.
