Well, It Could Be Worse

Many people have asked how I feel about this move to Germany (which is getting more and more complicated as the Hubs goes to work each day!) I am okay with it. For one, it's not like I can do anything about it. And B, I knew what I was getting into when I married a military guy. I am also NOT okay with it at the same time. I was mad when we got the "orders" to move to this base, because we have been in the area so long. I wanted to go somewhere else. As soon as I finally "accepted" staying here, we get this next set of orders. So that is VERY annoying. I am a mixed bag of emotions about it. And it all depends on what I'm doing at the time. Knowing that yesterday was *z*'s last birthday party with this particular group of people was sad. Knowing this time next year I will be shopping in an IKEA? Ecstatic! You only get one life to live, and I'm not one to NOT live it. This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for us. And we'll take it. *Z* is happy she'll get to go to Disney. EuroDisney will be a short drive for us!! And I'm happy it isn't orders to Minot. I NEVER want to go to Minot!!

I know how tough this can be. My dad was in the Navy and I lost count of the number of moves we made over the years. Fingers crossed for you all.
Best wishes

My husband grew up in a Navy family - it's a strange thing to move so much. My sympathies on the rough parts.

I clicked your link. Yeah, I don't think I'd want to live in Minot, either. Comparatively, Germany will be really nice.

I hope we don't ever have to go to Minot either....

I know how you feel about mixed emotions about moving. I think you'll enjoy Germany because of the endless wonderful places that are a day drive away. As always in the military, you make the best of each situation!

Let me know how things progress. I still need to come by one day!!

Your grace and acceptance of a potentially hard situation should be a lesson for us all. Thank you for reminding me of this.

You should see the tantrum she is really throwing.

I'm kidding. :-) I'm the one throwing a tantrum. I've been here longer and I don't have orders. LOL

*muah* it's all good babe. We like adventures remember.

I'll trade you places if you want? =)
OK, so maybe I will have to fly to Germany to visit then k?

I'm glad you're mixed and not just not liking it- but coming up with the good things... It's good for you.

There's still TV, internet, and phone. And Eurodisney... I love you!

Minot. In the middle of nowhere.

Yeah, take Germany.

I hear they have excellent pastries, and we know it's all about the pastries.
