Two Years

Time is the coin of your life.  It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent.  Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. 
~Carl Sandburg

Earlier this month, I celebrated two years here in the Pacific Northwest. It’s been a tumultuous two years full of ups and downs.

For the majority of the two years (let’s be honest, all but 15 weeks because I got a job but was laid off just 15 weeks later), I’ve been unemployed. I mean, I’ve always had the Navy Reserves and have done stints of active duty there (and am just finishing up three months of active duty), but for the most part, I’ve been unemployed.

But two weeks from today, I’m starting a new job. I’m going to be working as a Navy civilian on the local base. It’s a dream job. It’s also a two-year “term” job… which means it’s only around for two years.  But who knows what will happen. In that time, it could be extended or it might stay two years.

Two years.

Wow. A lot can sure happen in two years. I wonder what I’ll be doing/where I’ll be in two years.

What do you think will be happening in your life?

  1. Mrs. Monkey,

    I’m absolutely thrilled with the job… it’s actually a dream job. And yes, job security for sure.

    I hope to be running after a one year old 😉

  2. Well…two years from now we will be on Shore Duty in a GREAT position (possibly the best for this point in his career AND for post-Navy life), working on making babies and I will be at the end of Nursing school 🙂

  3. Mr. F and I are celebrating our 2 year anniversary next month and I keep thinking about how much has changed in those 2 years! Where did they go? In 2 more years I’ll be running around after a toddler and possibly another kiddo….and we may be back in California then!

    Congrats on the new job!

  4. Congrats on the new job! In two years, we will probably still be on Charleston and if not married, at least planning that big day! And babies shortly after 😉

  5. So excited that you got your dream job!

    I agree, so much has happened in the past two years! I know the changes are going to keep coming too!

    So in two years, I’ll be running around an almost 2 year old and hopefully she’ll have a brother or sister cooking:) We’ll see how that one works out though!
