The Latest

"Up, up and away in my beautiful, beautiful balloon."

I've heard the military is all "hurry up & wait."  Ain't that the truth.  My appointment was May 18, right?  Today, June 4, my results have JUST been faxed to the recruiters (that was the doc's fault, though).  But the recruiters tell me I have between 1 week and 1 month to wait for them to be reviewed and find out if I can go to MEPS or not.  In the mean time, I have some huge life decisions to make that are very time-sensitive, and knowing when I'm leaving plays a definite part.  Currently, just about every element of my life is up in the air, swirling around, and there's no telling how it will all land.  So stay tuned!

A bit of happy news:  I reached my first weight goal!  It's the important one (to be under the maximum Navy weight requirement).  The rest of the weight I'm working on is for my own personal health (& vanity).

One of my awesome online Navy girl friends, Melissa, left for bootcamp a couple weeks ago.  She told me she'd write, and that I could use it in my blog.  If she doesn't end up writing I wouldn't blame her at all, but still excitedly checking the mail box. :)
