One more year

(Sigh) ... It was a little disappointing to not see hubby's name on official promotion list today. It's a one year below the zone so we have another year to promote.  He had an awesome stratification, just not awesome enough I suppose. 
His father is still going through chemo and radiation and hopefully he'll be getting a stem cell transplant in a week. That being said, our humanitarian assignment could leave us here another year or we could end up getting a call to go anywhere at anytime, so we wait and see what another year brings us...
