I was opposed to the idea. I mean, it's a little terrifying having to turn your life over to strangers who basically own you and determine where you live for a set number of years. (One reason I never served a church mission! But at least the church uses Divine Inspiration to make these decisions!)
Anyway, one of the arguments that helped win me over was the "we'll get to travel and maybe even live in a foreign country!" one.
Well, that was a low blow.
'Cause see, I've always wanted to live in a foreign country--or at least travel extensively in one--and this seemed like the only way. My dream was to go to England, but anywhere in Europe would be a dream come true.
So Doug applied for an Air Force scholarship and won a spot. They would pay for three years of Dental school in exchange for three years of him Dental-ing on an Air Force Base.
When he decided to specialize, they deferred his repayment for two years.
So here we are with one year left of his residency. That means one more year before he begins his three year repayment.
Until recently, the location we'd be spending our three year repayment was up in the air.
Well, not any longer.
And I'm still processing it.
And probably will be for the next twelve months.

'Cause I'm still pretending we're going to England.
