Jan had this to say in her comment to me about Hubby going active duty.
You are compromising your dream law school. It's a situation we've all been in - giving up our job, giving up our kids' friends, etc.

You know she is right, I am compromising my dream of Baylor Law School for now. It was a hard decision to make and I did cry a few tears but realized why and what we are doing. We are reenlisting for money reasons. Hubby has come home two times to a job that was supposed to be the same but was not. The base pay was equal but his commission has gone way down due to the fact his route was divided up and they will not give it back to him as a whole route again. It just sucks and we decided to do something about it.

As far as my dream goes, I have started it and know I can do it. No matter where we are I will still take classes of some kind and keep working forward. If I do not get to go to Baylor then it was not ment to be. I will go to a Law School like I had always planned. It just may not be in 4 years like I had planned. Next semster I wil start working towards my Crimial Justice Degree and will be able to take most of those credits wherever we go. I am more excited about being able to see my Hubby with his head high and walking proud again. We have 12 years to go for retirement and in that time anything can happen. I am just not looking forward to being alone again but it is only for a few months. And Hubby will be able to come see us and we will be able to go see him if he is close enough. Just keep us in your prayers and send good thoughts our way. This week has brought unexpected changes of plans and it is wrecking havoc on my study group nihgt this week. Oh well. We will be fine because we are always fine in the long run and that will never change.

So please heal your heart and know I have promised all of my online friends, Hubby and myself Law School is still a must, just not as soon as I want. My dream will be fullfilled even as my Hubby fullfilleds his dreams. Which by the way includes WOC package in the near future.

I don't see that as a compromise at all. You want law school and I have no doubt that you will see that to fruition. You are just changing how you are going to get there. Changing so that your dreams match your reality. And people transfer law schools too. So don't worry about that.

I agree. It amazes me to see how different people see different situations in life. Hubby makes sure I look at things with a positive view and with laughter. I did not have enough of it before Hubby walked into my life. I used to always look at the negative and worry and fret. I have learned from my wonderful Hubby that to laugh is the best way to deal with most of life's curve balls.

Oh, that is sooooo my husband too! That man can crack me up even when I feel like crying. Marriage and life is all about compromise. Butterfly Wife is so right. You WILL go to law school, your mode of transportation is just a little different. If you truly want the half glass full? It's not like you are changing your Lamborghini for a pair of old, squeaky roller skates! :o)
