We have been looking at orders for a few months now. Kris put in orders twice and we got turned down both times.. We are trying to get closer to the east coast but the navy doesn't want to send us anywhere.. sigh.. I would really like to be some where warmer and I really REALLY do not want to go back to Ca. and I don't want to stay in WA either. Don't get me wrong, it is really beautiful here.. but I could use less hills, less rain, and more warmth .. especially for my running.
I would really like to be able to move forward with my running but not having a treadmill or any flat road to do it on is hard.. it makes it even harder when 90% of the time it is raining here.
I haven't given up.. especially since I have found a love for running.. it makes me feel a sense of accomplishment that I have never felt before..
So back on track.. We will be putting in orders again in a few days.. maybe this time we will actually get accepted for some.. at least I hope so.. because other wise it means the navy will be choosing orders for us and we get no say.. and I will be pissed if we have to spend shore duty in CA! God please let us at least get to the Mid U.S. somewhere! The west coast is definitely not the place for a laid back Florida girl.. lol..
I have enjoyed being able to experience different places and I would be glad to experience another place that I have not yet been.. I just want away from the west coast..lol
