The Big Airline called Better Half this afternoon, and offered him his old job back. It's been almost 9 years. He will probably report to the East Coast near the end of December. What with his probationary period, then buying a house, I should probably be able to (just barely) finish out the school year next spring on the bookmobile.
Helloooooo flight benefits!
(Not that we'll be visiting Lance Criminal any time soon - he expects to deploy early next year. He just joined his new unit last week.)
