A new way of life

In the last thirteen months we have definitely started a new way of living life. Air Force boot camp from September-November started it all off. Being away from Allyson for those 8.5 weeks was terrible.  Hasty 30min phone calls every Sunday didn't quite do us justice. It was just enough time to ensure that we were both still alive and well. Upon BMT graduation we moved to Biloxi, MS where I started classes on electronics. That was a whole new world to me. I didnt know anything about current and voltage and resistance. The learning curve was steep. (it still is) we enjoyed Mississippi quite a bit. Allyson had an apartment right across the street from the beach, unfortunately I had to live on base I the dorms. But I was only there as much as they made me. Those 10 weeks were filled with early morning PT sessions(4:45am) and early nights going to bed. However, we managed to find time to go to New Orleans and Hattiesburg. From Mississippi we went on to Wichita Falls, Texas, which I came to call the sphincter of America. We didn't really enjoy the few months we were there. But we made the best of it. The Dallas and Oaklahoma City zoo were our favorite attractions there. We then got the word that Germany was where we would be stationed. We were very excited about that. We only had heard how hard it was to get stationed overseas, so we didn't really think it would happen. We have been here for a couple months now. I think we have found a groove, finally. But it's a tough transition. Nothing is convenient over here. And it always seems like we need something. We are planning our first out-of-Germany trip this weekend. We will be spending a couple nights in Brussels with some friends of ours. It'll be a nice little getaway. 
This is just a short, short summary of what life has been like. Maybe I'll get more into it another time, but if not,too bad. Just my re-intro back to blogging.
