Mixed News

Well, there is good news and bad news.  The good news is that Danny did fantastic on his ASVAB so he pretty much can do whatever he wants if it is an open position.  Other good news, they measured him and he is at the body-fat percentage in order to be eligible to join the Army.  I saw the thyroid doctor and all my levels are good and I don't have to go back to her til the end of April!  YAY! 

Now for the not so good news.  The recruiter took Danny back to the office after his test last night and did a search for jobs available 4/5 through 5/15 or so.  Nothing came up.  Not one job in the entire Army.  So the recruiter expanded the search through the end of July and about 7 jobs showed up.  He expanded it through November and about 20 showed up.  So Danny can join, he is eligible, but he can't go to basic until July.  The good part of that is he will definitely be here for the birth of our son.  That makes me very happy.  On the other hand, he needs a job.  Knowing he will be leaving in a couple of months makes it that much harder to find one.  His job for the past two months has been to lose the weight.  He did his part, and now he still has to wait.  It is so hard!  Now he has to continue to count every calorie consumed and run everyday in addition to searching for a job to get us through until July.  I would have given up by now, but he keeps on.  He is such a strong man and I am a very lucky woman!
