Our new home......and a P.S

For the first time in my life I will be living in a privatized home. That means that it's military housing but you live off base in a developed neighborhood. The builder has a deal where he only rents to military members and the rent goes from our paycheck directly to him. Last week we accepted a house. Sight unseen, God help us. The management office took pictures for us of the outside as there is still a family in there. I am hoping it's as nice as the pictures make it look. At least the school district is the one we want so there is that.
In other newsy stuff happening here, Walker Leigh left today for the States. Saying goodbye to her was tough. I did what I needed to do...watched the Sex and the City movie and had a good cry. :) I'm up next. I have the vet appts made so that we can get them all health certified and shave off three hours at customs. I am slowly working it out in my head that I can do the flight without the hubby and all will be well. We only have to change plans once. That means finding the pets, the luggage and two carts then running to the other side of the airport to check everything in again. Doesn't that sound like fun!!! I plan on calling the airlines and telling them to have a cold glass of wine awaiting for me. I need them to hand it to me as soon as I step on board. Oh, and for good in flight movies....and a back rub.....and some scented candles lit by me....and a row by myself.......and airplane booties, the cute blue ones.......shoot, they could just bump me up to business class and I'd be happy. Think that'll happen?? heehee
p.s. Thanks for all the kind comments on my Military Spouse post. You guys are the bestest! It's nice to know that there are other women out there who know just what you're going through, isn't it. :) Thanks again you guys!!!

There's something about shifting to a house sight unseen!! Of course you will manage the shifting day, you are an amazing woman and I am sure that cold glass or 3 of wine will be waiting for you!!

I wish you a reasonable relocation, and hope your new home is better than expected. Hope you can get back to your favorite activities, and blogging of course.

LOVE that part about wishing for the glass of wine!

Snap back into reality my friend! Wine waiting for you??? We are talking about Korean Air! I made it back to America, not without any stress, but I know that you can do it!
