Still in Limbo

The husband finished his job last month, but that doesn't mean the military is cutting him loose. Right now, he goes to PT formation and comes home--often for the day. There aren't enough jobs for the number of people in the military. Some people are currently doing nothing. We're trying to figure out if there's some way for the military to cut the husband loose, but we've come up empty handed. Most people have no clue what to do. I'm mentally prepared to wait the full time until his terminal leave begins (in July), but it would certainly be great if we were able to leave earlier. The waiting is boring, but at least we are getting our money's worth with our Netflix subscription.

We are supposed to close on our house in a little over two weeks. I've worked out to do the closing by mail, so fortunately I don't have to return to Florida right now.

The house we're buying needs a bit of work. Mainly, it needs a new roof, and it needs one right away. I have someone lined up to do the work, but we don't have a date set yet. The roof is going to cost us $10,000--not huge money, but I need to make sure we have cash on hand to cover it. We will eventually do other work, but the roof is the most pressing item.
