I laid down with hubby around 10pm, cuddled, read a little, turned out the lights. Around 12 I couldn't handle tossing and turning... so what did I do? I painted my toenails teal. Yeah, random. Then I made a list of things I need to get done around the house, errands that need to be run, and projects that need to be finished. So... semi-productive.
I had a job interview earlier this week. It went amazingly well, I'm pretty much just waiting for the call saying "you're in, training begins on..."
Only to tell them- "I'm sorry, I won't be able to take the position."
Why? Well, the very next day (ie: why I can't sleep and am awake writing this)- I kid you not this happened:
I'm finishing up a batch of blueberry muffins for a bake sale my friend is hosting, hubs
Me- I take it today was rough?
Him- Do you want the good news or bad news?
Me- Bad first.
Him- We might be moving soon.
Me- How soon?
Him- My orders say October...*
Me- Oh. The good news?
Him- We got the duty station we wanted...
Me- How on earth are we suppose to prepare for that in a month?**
Him- Yeah...about that...
*We were suppose to be here until next July (2011), this move is 9mo-10mo early
**This duty station requires putting everything we own on a boat... usually you are suppose to send your item 1-3mo in advance. TMO only pays for 1 car, which means I need to sell mine.
We'll see if the Marine Corps is telling the truth soon enough... and if they are... we're in for one heck of a month!
This will be my first military PCS... when we got married I flew/drove my things here. Any advice from all of you seasoned veterans? What should I pack myself (not trust TMO with), since we have to fly to this duty station we'll only have 2 bags each. How do you organize before TMO comes to your house? Any tips, tricks, special precautions?
ALSO- has anyone flown with guinea pigs before, which airline did you use? It's going to absolutely DEVASTATE me if we have to give our fur-babies away =/ *yes they are allowed where we are going, I just haven't found an airline that will fly them...
