Now that I've had my fun leaving the bloggy world hanging...
So Josh came home from work yesterday and had found out our assignment.
First allow me to give you some background information.
Our first choice in assignments was to do a foreign flying exchange, where Josh would work with another country's Air Force. This sounded like a fun adventure to me, and we ranked our choices based on what was available this assignment cycle. The choices were bases in England, Germany, France, and Canada.
Here's where I went wrong folks.
Josh and I agreed that France would be our number one choice, mostly because it's located close to Euro-Disney.
It's about priorities people.
Enter my mistake: I allowed Josh to rank our second choice based on the aircraft that he wanted to fly. As if his job should factor in to where I want to live.
And so he did.
And so we got our second choice.
And while it's such a blessing to have been selected for a flying exchange at all...his second choice would probably have been my last choice.
Because my friends, I do not enjoy the cold.
And we shall be cold.
Very, very cold.
Have you guessed our assignment? If you're exceptionally slow, or have been drinking heavily, let me spell it out for you:
At our next assignment, the local population is 99% French speaking.
At our next assignment, the average high during the hottest month of the year is 75 degrees.
At our next assignment, the average high during the coldest month of the year is 13 degrees.
Yes, I said the high was 13 degrees.
We will be heading out to work with the Canadian Air Force in Bagotville, Quebec!
No giggles please, I'm sure it's pronounced Ba-go-veel or something like that. Umm, right? Anyone out there speak French?
Note to self: Have Josh pick up the French Rosetta Stone at the base tomorrow.
Josh will be flying this thing:
But I've never been that good at airplane identification, so don't hold me to it.
We don't have any details yet as to exactly when we'll be going. We're waiting to find out if we get to go to language school as well.
So now half of the waiting is over, and hopefully the details will be filled in soon.
So now I'm free to concentrate on getting our house ready to put on the market. Sounds like fun, don't you think?
Shivering in anticipation in Idaho.
