If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you already know that Cass was selected for promotion to Technical Sergeant! For non Air Force, it’s E-6. From what everyone says, it’s the hardest enlisted rank to make so it’s a really big accomplishment for him. I’ve been nonstop bragging about him since the promotion list came out. He seriously worked his butt off for it and I couldn’t be prouder!
When we were dating, Cass told me his goal was to get to MSgt (E-7) before retiring. I think he has a really great shot at making it further.
A little bit ago, I wrote a really vague tweet about things happening that could prevent us from going home to Hawaii this fall. At the time, Cass had interviewed for a QA spot. If he got the job, he wasn’t sure if he could still get leave for September. Well, he ended up not getting the job.
…but I did. Well, not that job, but a job. I’ve been dragging my feet about getting a job since we moved. I got a position as a receptionist at a doctor’s office. In some ways, it’s very similar to the admitting jobs I had in Alaska and Oregon. But in a lot of ways, it’s very different. I’m really enjoying it so far and my coworkers have been really easy to get along with.
I love getting out the house and socializing with people outside of the military again. We’re bummed that Hawaii isn’t happening this year, but we’re happy for the job opportunity.
Oh and I chopped off all my hair! I wish I kept a few inches, it would make it easier to tame. But I love having short hair again! I keep forgetting though and I’ve overdone it on the shampoo and conditioner all week.

So those are our life updates! I’m still figuring out my daily flow and how I’m going to handle work + chores + reading + blogging, not to mention time with Cass and Lexi. Cass is also busy with work + schooling + getting his ducks in order so he can get his A&P license. Our days are busy and life is good. I hope all is well with you too!
