It's a bittersweet day...

Today is M's last day on post. It's bittersweet for me, but I don't think it is for him. He's not as emotional about things as I am. It's bittersweet for me because a lot happened here.  Well, not really a lot, but the big thing... Deployment. I knew when we got orders for this post that deployment would be on the horizon. This post is known for it. What I didn't realize would be what happened to me during that time. I grew stronger, realized that I could be independent while still being dependent, developed a deeper faith and welcomed my husband home. It's been three months and I think we have settled into a new routine. Now, that routine is getting interrupted with packing and moving. I'm ready for this move. I hope that all of our dreams come true in Georgia.

As far as packing.... Now, we are down to the nitty gritty. We leave in less than a week. Now I can start the main packing. Things we won't wear here anymore, things that we won't use the next 6 days... It's going to be busy around here. M wants to get the vehicles waxed this weekend, we need oil changes in both vehicles, cancelling our utilities and such, packing in boxes, packing in the moving truck, cleaning, inspection, the list can go on and on.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and I hope you are blessed!

My husband is finishing up at his command next week after 3 1/2 years! I met him right before he checked in, and it has been really emotionl for me! I am so relieved I'm not the only one. I drop him off and pick him up, and while sitting in the parking lot yesterday waiting for him, gazing at the ship, I actually began to cry. We're not moving from our house, but I can imagine moving on top of leaving adds to the emotions! Good luck with your move and safe travels to Georgia!

Georgia is a great place, really- as long as you can handle the heat. I'm miserable at Fort Frozen Hell, but the people there are what saves me.

Chin up. It's always an adventure!

I can totally see why you'd be emotional about leaving, even if you are excited about moving. I still get emotional thinking about Hood because that's where we were when Jesse deployed. But you guys should LOVE Georgia, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else! (:

We just got here last August to our current post, and I was ready to leave in September. Yup.

Where ARE you guys, anyways? I've never figured that out (or I've completely missed it if you've ever said it).

Good luck in GA!

At least GA will be closer to friends and family in AL. I never doubted that you would make it through the deployment, and I'm excited for you guys about your next adventure in GA!!
