Wait, the end to that sentence is not what you expect, or, it might be to those of you who know me/us.
"...the wife will start planning crazy things!"
So, the crazy? Home buying. Last time Mike was deployed, I unpacked us in a brand new apartment and moved into a new and slightly (sarcasm, here) more rigorous job. This time? Well let's just say I might be packing and unpacking a new home. Don't get me wrong, we LOVE where we live right now and are totally happy here. But, we are renting and are considering the benefits of home ownership. We've looked a couple places, but they've mostly been out of our range. There is one home we are currently looking at that might be just what we are looking for. Mike has only seen pictures so far, but he's given me the thumbs up to look into it and, when he returns shortly, we'll go together to check it out.
I may be crazy for even considering this with the short period of time that Mike has before his next long-term deployment, but I can never say I'm bored!
