In the military we move more times that we can count, we unpack boxes and watch as total strangers pack our personal effects into cardboard wrapped in paper.  We watch as canned beans are combined with blankets from the living room and strange items get packed with our electronics.  A military move is rough, when [...]

6 months

I have heard and read that it takes about 6 months after each move before you feel at home in your new town.  Well March is my 6th month and I finally feel like we might make it!  We spent 8 months down in Florida while my husband finished school and we never got fully plugged [...]

Filed under A Day in the Life, Bloggers, Julie, PCSing

After being stationed overseas, the return home might seem overwhelming.  There is a lot to think about and some of the transitions may not be as smooth as you would like.  We were in Germany for four years and have been back in the US now for a little over a year and a half. [...]

The move, or so we think

As I write this, today is October 1st and we are getting the house prepared for the movers to arrive in just 4 days.  At this moment we still don’t know 100%  if my husband will be checking out of his current base on the day we’ve all planned.  Hard copy orders have been in our [...]

Family Support Centers are becoming my favorite resource

As you all know we’re new to this military life.  We’re quickly approaching our first PCS in something like 27 days.(AAHHHH)   Now that I got that off my chest maybe I can actually focus on the task at hand, the paperwork of moving.  It all started the day my husband got his orders, I hit [...]

So we made it across the USA in no more than a week.  I left GA in my VW Routan towing my 74 VW Thing, with a total weight of 8360 lbs, mind you my van has a curb weight of only 4,650 lbs.  So we were a heavy load!  When we finally got on [...]

So the time came to make the drive across the states. Since I left GA early, my husband met me up in VA where I was spending some time with my family before the trip across. Turns out my family had decided to keep the boys and hubby’s family took our daughter so that we [...]
