I've really come to the conclusion, over the last couple of weeks, that I am a change/adventure seeker. I get so bored doing to same thing, in the same place for years. I jump at the chance to seize any opportunity. I need a sense of adventure in my life.
For example, Jesse told me about a job opportunity for him in Hungary back in February. It involved us moving to a place where there is no housing on base. We would live in the town, see the local doctors,shop at the local markets, etc. I told him immediately that he didn't have to tell me anymore, he should volunteer to go if he wanted. I was all for it! Didn't happen... I was slightly bummed.
Jesse went down to New Zealand/Antarctica when Hunter was six weeks old for a month long trip for the Air Force. I decided on the day he left, a Thursday, that I wanted to take Hunter and go, too. We left that Sunday. (Talk about a stressful 2 days trying to get an infant a passport asap!)
I am leaving tomorrow to go visit Jesse while he's deployed in Turkey. I am so excited to see my husband, I can hardly contain myself. I am also really looking forward to experiencing a Muslim country and such a difference in culture. I cannot wait!!!
Jesse's enlistment is up the beginning of February. He could get out of the Air Force at that time. My vote is for him to stay in. There are so many different factors that go into that opinion, but one of them is my desire to live a life of adventure. I want to move around, experience new places, meet new people, and not know what the future holds. The idea of that excites me.
