Moving to Georgia Series - day 6

Email DJ

DJ / 8 Years Ago

That first day of moving was a cake walk compared to what we have endured since. Day 2 resulted in all of our loose stuff being packed away, which means dishes, clothes, basically everything we were not taking with us. That made making dinner that evening an adventure as items we were used to having were not available to us. Scooping out ice cream with a plastic spoon is not exactly ideal! We did get a break by getting out to my promotion ceremony, though. That was nice.

The third day of moving was by far the worst - the movers came for a long day of moving our furniture out of the house. I helped when I could, but also spent time loading up the cars and cleaning various things to make the house ready for our tenants to move in the very next day. Our tenants needed to move in ASAP, so we had to hurry up and get out. That resulted in constant stressful activity until around 9:30pm. On top of that, I needed to be at work the next day to accept my Commendation Medal. And, in addition to that, I had to have my car at the repair shop in the morning.

All of those things would not have so bad if we would have gotten even a moderate amount of sleep. The beds in temporary lodging here are just the worst - very hard. Plus, the cats decided to make it a game to get past the folding plastic door into our room. Overall, it was miserable, and we were miserable the whole next day (and the few days after that as well).

Thankfully, our time in billeting is already halfway over and before we know it we will be on our way to Georgia starting our new adventure that will have lots of challenges, but at least we will be where we are going and not where we are leaving. We are so looking forward to it!

    New Year New Challenges
    Another year has come and gone. 2017 was an interesting year - it alternated between frustrating and challenging and pretty sweet. It had some tough times and some great times. Overall, though, it was way better than 2016! 2016 was our toughest year ever. This was kind of a rebound year. It got us back on track. It should be viewed as the springboard that will help make 2018 be the best year yet! We are so blessed and we have some big events ahead of us this year.

    I find out about my promotion in March, then we go on a cruise with Lori, James, Oliver, and Lucy, then if I did get promoted, we'll find out where we are moving to later in the year. Then later in the year we'll actually move. Perhaps around then we'll take a vacation to see friends in Hawaii. It is going to be a big year and I am ready for it!

    Flees.net has been updated!
    The Timeline page is active! It still needs to be updated with many of the events in our lives, but it is a start and I really like how the page turned out. The next public available item I'll be working on is TV show tracker. Not that I think anyone cares that much what w
