Where are you all heading to next?
What duty station are you all going to?
These are by far the most asked questions. I haven't really talked about it much on here so briefly let me explain what's going on. Hubby is in the process of getting out of the military. He was a two time non-select (due to no fault of his own), but was picked up for the selection board. The military is downsizing and while we did not see this coming it is for the best. He (we really) made the decision to get out. Obviously, this means we aren't go to a new duty station and we aren't even sure where a new job will take us. Hubby is on terminal leave and we both are looking for jobs. In the meantime, we will be staying with my dad in New York. He has a couple of empty rooms that we can use for the time being. It's not the best spot to be in as who wants to move back home or have an entire 4 person (plus 2 dogs) family living with them. For now it will allow us to save some money while we continue to job hunt. I hope for everyone's sake this is just a short stay.
How is the move going?
I feel like I have been talking about this move forever, but we have known it was coming for a long time. When we renewed our lease we mistakenly forgot to check for a military clause. There wasn't one. So we had to leave at the end of the lease which is the end of May. Had hubby stayed in it would have coincided with our next PCS, but since he is getting out we need to move. I am very thankful that he is given some extra benefits because of why he is leaving that will give us the ability to land on our feet from this short notice pink slip situation. Some of which is the HHG storage for up to a year and the ability to ship our HHG anywhere we choose. This will make life a bit easier for us in the long run.
Onto the packing....
Packing Day One

For now I need to get to bed as the packers are coming early in the morning. I need some sleep.
