I have been researching like a mad woman three possibilities (drill, recruiting, TOG) that we have been discussing for Jason to do next with his career. Would it be sad if I said at this point I don't like all of them haha!? I have been doing a lot of reading to see what other wives say and no one has said "We love it!" or "It is a great job!" Everything has an and or a but in it and many of the wives seem negative or resentful of their husband's job. The only thing I like about the choices are all are non-deployable (and here comes the but on my behalf), but each one of them requires long intense hours, weekends, twelve plus hour days, etc. After two deployments it seems like all of these options would be wonderful because my husband wouldn't be back overseas for at least a few years. On the other hand he wont have those four day weekends, the amount of leave he can take now, and to be home every day around 5pm or so, etc with his current job when he is home. I just feel so torn about what is best for us and especially him. Do we just dive in and see for ourselves how one of them turns out or do we listen to the caution signs? Sometimes I wonder if we should just risk going to a new duty station without changing anything and keep our fingers crossed that we have a little time together before he ends up back overseas. I just don't know and wish the answer was more simple.
The Army is stressing me out. :)
