This morning at 845 am I told my boss about the deployment. She was great. She supports the military and understands that I want to go. Maybe just as important she understands adventure. She told she and her family are going to the Caribbean for the weekend. She plans to swim with a whale.
On Tuesday we will be making plans for putting someone else in my job for a year. Two of my co-workers may get a chance to see if they like my job. Of course, nothing is for sure.
