Jes and Justin are doing great in Omaha. Justin deployed (to Qatar) in August, but was home in time to join us all in Hilton Head for Christmas! Justin is being reassigned to Tinker Air Force Base and they’ll be moving to Oklahoma City in the Spring of 2012. Justin continues to excel in the Air Force, with a promotion last year, and is nearing completion of his degree with Embry Riddle. His instructor was so impressed with his YouTube speech that he’s using it as an example of how one can earn their degree even when deployed!

After a year working in a brand-new and state-of-the-art (not to mention the largest) cancer hospital, when her company’s contract ended, Jes decided to work in a somewhat less stressful job - working at David’s Bridal and selling to brides! (I’m not altogether sure that’s less stressfull!! You’ve heard of “bride-zilla!”) She is a top seller at her store - and management lauds how she always makes sales to “her brides.” Jes hopes to be able to start school in a new aspect of healthcare after the move. She has been a Pharmacy Tech for almost five years, and is possibly looking for a career change into either Physical or Occupational Therapy next.

Pending their upcoming move - Jes has been readying their Nebraska home for sale, so if you know of anyone moving to Omaha:

Newer 3bdrm, 2bath 1,453 sq ft  home in Bellevue.  All new stainless steel appliances; 2 car garage; fully fenced large backyard with shed; finished walk-out basement with fireplace and laundry room; new stain master carpet on main level; new energy star front door, storm door and garage door; and brand new security system.  Great schools and close to shopping and restaurants, walking trail through neighborhood and large children’s park.

I’m sure Gidget, Maverick, and Buddy will be happy to be settled in their new home!
