Gary's started his briefings and paperwork to get this partay started. And, I'm feeling it. I feel like there's all this stuff I should be doing, but there isn't. Gary sets our appointments with the movers and with housing. I just wait. That shadoobie is hard!
There really isn't anything to get rid of, nothing to pack ---as of now, no apartment to lock down (since we decided to live on post AGAIN given that we don't know the area too well---thank you so much for your help though, Whammy!! xxoo), and no plans for me to make. Yet, I still feel like the days go so quickly and that there's bunch to do.
But, there's not, ok, Sammie?!
It's not my default setting to have trouble going with the flow, but the Army makes everything a pain in the hiney. So, that's what I'm anticipating: painful hind-quarters. Actually, I think I'm just having a moment. For instance, Gary's at work, Jake's napping, we're not going out (it's payday, peeps! Hide out!), I may or may not be able to make it to the gym tonight--depending on when my studmuffin gets home. It just feels like I should be doing something because of the PCS deal.
Oh, did my non-military peeps forget what PCS stands for? Sorry, loves: Permanent Change of Station.
But, I really am sooo excited to move to Colorado. The first thing anyone says, when they hear where were going, is how beautiful it is there and how much we'll love it. And, there's all kinds of crap for us to do, which we love! This was my FB status yesterday:
This is true to the uber-degree. I can't wait for us to spend more time outside since we're not being feasted on by mosquitoes. I can't wait for snowboarding, and hiking in all the gorgeous places we're being told about. Love us an adventure, or two!
I feel I should start the process of mourning my departure from Trader Joe's.
It's just so crazy how fast this is happening! I feel like it was just yesterday when Gary and I skyped, while he was in Afghanistan, and he told me he came up on orders. But, it was months ago! Now, it's right around the corner!
Just food for thoughts: We're not opposed to any tips to make this easier! Even though, it'll be fine. It is fine. Just don't know the nature of the PCSing beast since we've never done it before.
Wish us oodles of luck!
