Waiting To Find Out Where Home Will Be…

It was interesting to see Jessica Lynn’s first post was about her upcoming OCONUS PCS (“outside the continental United States permanent change of station,” or overseas move).  As I read, I found that I was a wee bit jealous.  Oh, not about where they are going (well, only a little) but the simple fact that they KNOW where they are going.

The only thing I know for sure is that we WILL be moving in about 3 months.  We think there are 2 possibilities:  one is OCONUS and one is CONUS.  Let’s face it:  those are 2 very different types of moves that require different strategies.

There is a lot of angst on my post/base/whatever your service calls it.   Most of us are moving this summer.  Some know where they are going.  Some don’t.  A handful of people even have orders.  The rest of us hate them.  (No, not really!)  At this point, I just want to KNOW where we are going so I can start wrapping my head around it and start laying the groundwork for prepping for the move.

Besides, looking at rental property sites in 2 such different locations is driving me crazy.

About Marine Wife

Marine Wife is a former Army Brat who married her Marine in 1998, making theirs a mixed marriage. She has two Devil Pups that keep her on her toes and threaten her sanity daily.

But that might only be fair since Marine Wife just might hold the record for getting her husband called on the carpet. Hmmm....that might be why he now enjoys the fact that she never took his name.

While Marine Wife often wonders what it would be like to live at the same address for longer than 2 years, she enjoys all the adventures that life with the Corps affords. OORAH!
