The big Question?

C's enlistment is up this coming summer and he is seriously considering not re-uping. Which of course has me in a panic. He has even started looking for jobs in our hometown. But, that just leaves so many other problems. We will have to sell our house that we have just barely lived in for a year. A house that I love dearly. It is the house that we brought Princess P home to. It has had so many memories in such a short period of time. I just hate to leave. Then we would have to find a new home. Nothing close to what we live in now. The cost of living is so much higher there and the selection is not the best. Because of the higher cost of living I would have to go back to work. Which has me in tears just thinking about it. I can't leave my little one for an hour now. Much less to go to work for 8 hours! We would have to find a great daycare to put her in. Which the selection is also limited there too. Plus, I have the added frustration of C being around all of his old (single) friends again. Which I am afraid of the temptation he will have to want to be around them all the time. It is a small town so everyone knows everyone. And their business for that matter. But the good thing is Princess P will be around her grandparents there. And me and C might actually get some alone time! I just have no clue what to do. I'm torn!

I totally understand. My hubby has about four more years until he can retire. Retire? and then what? It is a scary place to be, the unknown.
Good luck and be strong. He will need you to be strong too. But also take the time to talk it out.

I hear the same thing every now and then. He will hit his 10 year mark this month. He says he can go guard and still get retirement. Some times I think its a day dream out loud cause times are so hard right now. I would not worry till the time comes. Just save save save.
