    DH's Active Papers have been APPROVED! EEEEK

    Advertisements
    So DH got life changing news today. His long awaited paperwork was approved and he is able to get out of the Reserves and officially re-enlist Active Duty Army. I am so happy for him and so proud of him. He has a ton of work ahead of him but I know it will be fantastic for him. This will be wonderful for our family and I am so excited about all the possibilities ahead. I am stoked to see where this takes us and what it means. Nervous as hell too.

    All that being said, I am really hurt because DH wasn't the one to tell me, in fact he has told about 15 other people and I found out from one of them. He isn't home from drill yet, so I get that maybe he was waiting to tell me until he got home but I am a bit hurt he didn't mentioned it to me first before he told everyone else, and had celebration drinks with his buddies after drill and everything. It just makes me feel super left out. IDK maybe I am just being cranky and it's NBD.

    and totally get why you're upset. Maybe I'm a crazy face but next to DH, I'm most affected by his career and I want to know big updates. and

    Congratulations. How long has he been waiting? Will he be doing the same MOS that he was doing in the reserves, or doing something new?

    I am not as cranky this morning. I had had a really long day with the kiddos and I think I was just miffed a bit but I am now on to being super nervous and happy all at once. I know he didn't do it to be mean it just didn't think that it would bug me to not be the second to know.

    He has been waiting for 4 years basically the whole time he has been a Reservist . He is stoked. Yes and no. He is currently a 68w Combat Medic/Healthcare Specialist. He is going back in for 18x spot to be a Medic but an SF medic. If he doesn't make assessment though than he would be active duty infantry and medic.

    How exciting! I hope it all works out well for you, him and your family!

    I'd be a little miffed about being told by someone else too, but I could see why he might want to tell you in person.
