Things have gotten crazy around here.
We are less than 40 days away from leaving and we still don't have orders. This is a problem because we can't do anything without orders. I mean the basic stuff. We can't schedule the household goods pick-up (aka "day with the movers" for you non-military types), take our vehicle to be shipped (not even the one we're paying for out of pocket!), get our tickets out of here, pick up the boys' school records...none of that and more! It's so frustrating!
At least we know we're leaving, though. There was a six week timeframe where we thought we were staying another year. I was not thrilled, as you might imagine. It's only been two weeks since they gave us the go-ahead-and-move-then wave. Whew!
We've been spending our time taking last minute trips, trying to organize the house (an exercise in futility when you have four kids), and planning a trip for the return to the states. We've also been spending some serious quality time with our closest friends here. They are leaving in less than two weeks and we are going to miss them terribly.
All this to say that, although I certainly haven't forgotten about my little blog here, I have a lot of "real life" stuff going on that is keeping me hopping all day long. It might be a little quieter here for just a bit longer. Please hang with me. I will be back!
