Well, I figured I would spend a couple weeks back home in Cincinnati and I wanted to make sure I could help my wife in the new place after the move. I don't want to rush back to work and leave everything for my wife to do. I don't have to be back to work until the 10th of March, so it leaves me plenty of time to be of some assistance to my wife and spend time with the family. It also afford me the chance to get around and see some things around town. My family threw a big suprise party for me the other day and we had a great time. Things have been pretty good minus everyone getting sick (including myself)... I will talk to you all again soon...

Mark, it's so good to hear that you're doing well with the transition. When you said you'll be going back to work in March, does that mean you already have employment lined up in Sx. Falls? Will you still be working for the army like a recruiter or something?

I think you'll absolutely love Sx. Falls. Sorry if you've already said it, but what made your family decide on SD? Did you have family members here or did you vacation here? Just curious.

I still have another 2 years until I hit the 20 mark, but had to agree to do an extra year to come work in the Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) there in Sioux Falls. I will be running the Physical Exams Department there. As far as staying there, we will have to wait and see. I still think we will end up back in Cincinnati as all of our family is here. You just never know though !!! Things are still going well, thanks for asking !!!

The packers come Monday and the mover take it all away Tuesday. Depending on how long they take to deliver will tell when we will get to Sioux Falls. I don't think it will be all that long. I will be sure to give an update. My wife went there the week after Thanksgiving and found us a place that she really liked. She thought the city was nice as well as the people she encountered. We are really looking forward to the move !!!

Thanks guys !!! The movers are here now packing things up and they will load up and move starting tomorrow. They are going to deliver to us on Friday in Sioux Falls, so I have a couple more nights with the family before we head in that direction. We are all really excited about getting on our way and starting something new. The little dude still is having ear infection issues, but is getting better. That's about it for now, so I will let you know when we get there. Talk to you all soon !!!

Hi Mark, by the time you get here on Friday, the weather should be fairly decent. Today isn't a nice day at all and we're expecting several inches of snow in this direction. I heard it is supposed to come down at over an inch an hour.
