I Guess It's Really Going To Happen

I guess the Navy really is going to send us to England. It appears all the Ts are crossed and all the Is are dotted. I have been working my tail off trying to get ready for the packers that come in 5 days, but tonight I am calling it quits for trying to make progress and I am going to work toward updating the blog.

Originally I had thought how wonderful it would be to document each step it takes to prepare for an overseas move with the military. I very quickly realized that at the end of the day there was NO WAY I wanted to relive it. There have been many, many mountains to climb with very few downhills. It feels like the actual moving of our things is the easy part when you look at that next to all the paperwork. We are talking four months of intense paperwork and emailings.

Next week our furniture leaves and we will move in with my parents for the last few weeks we are in Virginia. Our adventure begins and I look forward to sharing it on my blog. That's the update for now.
