A Strange Thing to Say



There should be a list of things you never expected to say to your significant other... and I have a new top for the list...

"Stay safe, and don't let your goat jump out of the helicopter."

Yep.  That is something I said to my hubby last week.  And while it may be something to say when he was an active military man, it wasn't something I ever thought I would say to a now computer-tech guy.

While that was unexpected, unfortunately the fact that he will be working out of the country for quite a bit longer became pretty obvious after the three-to-four month job in Colombia quickly turned into six.  And now... it is estimated at close to a year.

I keep reminding myself that the pay is good, the advance in his career is better, but the main saving-grace is that he loves the job.  And while the country isn't as safe as we would like (especially with a few recent rebel attacks on Colombian military), knowing that hubby has military experience helps calm my nerves... a little. 

Of course, it also gave me the opportunity for my first out-of-country trip.

... and will hopefully pay for another big trip for both hubby and me in late spring.

It is good to hear that Chris loves his work.  He is working in a dangerous area.
The two of you are adventurous and young, enjoy but always be careful.
We love you!
