It has been well over a year since I was on blogging. In that time a lot has changed. I am still a Territory boy but currently am in Singleton NSW five weeks out from finishing my training to become an Australian Infantry Soldier. Yes that's right I joined the Army! My family and I as a result sold our house (made a nice little profit to might I add) and became debt free. The last five months have been pretty hard as I have only seen my family for a total of one week in that time and considering that in the seven years Danielle and I have been together the longest that we have been apart is two weeks and the longest I have been away from my boys was a weekend it has been tough. Saying that it has definitely made me appreciate more what I have and realize how much I truly love my family. Selling our house was a big call, but joining the Army and not knowing where I could be sent as a result added to the reasons to sell the house. So when I received my first posting and it was Darwin we were very surprised and releived. We now can get cheap housing through defence and it is good cause I am not going to be uprooting the family. Another good thing about the sale was zeroing our debt. We also had enough to buy ourselves a new car (Ford Territory) and still have some to put aside for future endevours. There is so much I need to write but I will put stuff up but I will put it up bit by bit. Anyway I will blog again soon catch ya!
