This is what the hubs is preparing for. He wants to be a Pararescue Jumper, a PJ.
Weirdly, training for something like this makes me feel excited for him. BUT! Then when I think of the whys... and I feel a wee bit scared. But, I know he is built for this. He truly is wired to be special forces. And, he loves serving his country.
These videos are intensely informative. Kenny's focus during them made me laugh.
I could tell his mind was working hard... evaluating himself and thinking about the torture this could bring him.
These videos have certainly given us an idea of what he will be going though...
although it is obvious no one knows what it's like unless they go through it.
Anyhow, you can find them on Youtube, but I wanted to put them all in one place for reference.
As a reservist, my husband gets to go on fun training adventures... some of these adventures last longer than others. This adventure requires travel and three weeks. So, today we loaded up all his Army gear and I drove him to the airport.
(I love this man, so much!!!)
So, for the next 22 days he will be catching rays in California (And learning how to be boss in the Army). Me? Well, once I peel myself off the floor and dry my over dramatic weepy eyes, I will be working on my daily habits.
Which habits? Well... lets start with...
1. No more oreo binge eating.
2. No more binge eating. (This is the first time I have ever admitted this... but I confess, I have a big problem. Most of the time, I can control it... but big life changes often bring anxiety and I feed it with food.)
10. work my journal and back journal entries (both photos and writing.)
Speaking of journal entries...
For our goodbye activity we bought unlimited ride tickets for the Salt Lake City County Fair. We rode rides. We ate amazing funnel cake. We laughed. I cried. And! We saw Jo Dee Messina in concert (hence the post title). We had a blasty blast. Here are some pictures:
O' and today makes three months since we "sealed" the deal! My sweet husband and I have been married for three months! CRAZY! Three whole months of wedded bliss. Three full months of many things... trips, laughs, tears, deep conversations, silly arguments and oreo cookies. I love my husband sooooo much! Our marriage, our family, is my world. Each day brings new challenges, silly fights, new understanding and so much growth. Marriage. I did not know it would be so... exciting, challenging, different, wonderful, awful, loving, amazing, boring, or perfect! I love growing with my husband... I just want to stop growing rounder! Unless... it is with a baby belly.
