We received some news from my 22 year old Stepson today. His application to the Canadian Army has been processed and he is being hired as a crewman. They usually work in/on tanks. He gets shipped out February 13th to Quebec for his basic training.
As parents we are both excited for him and scared at the same time based on his chosen career. This is something he has wanted for a very long time and it is finally happening for him. We are trying to be supportive of his decision. The Canadian Armed Forces is generally known for their peace keeping missions and we expect this is one way for him to see the world and gain some life experience.
In other news my friend Sonya Ann over at A Mom, Money and More has just released her new kindle ebook, Stratagem A Life Perceived. You can download the book for free for the next five days. You can also enter a contest to receive an amazon.com GC.
I am not posting this to get into the contest. I am posting it because she is a darn funny person whose blog I have enjoyed reading for several years and I can't wait to read it as just downloaded it myself. If you read it ensure you post a review on amazon.com.
Go visit Sonya Ann right now to enter the contest and for the free download link. Cheers!
