Ok, I have been a bad blogger. But was I ever a ‘good’ blogger? I think that is debatable, lol. I have good intentions to blog but end up doing 100 other things online instead of writing. But I hope to change that.
We have had a lot going on, including a vacation on a yacht, so it’s a perfect time to start back and document it all. We have been waiting for 6 months to find out when we are moving. Hubs interviewed for a job back in December and was offered it that day. Then it was just waiting. Lots of red tape and getting permissions to leave here early and take that position. Finally we found out Thursday that we were leaving…and soon. Friday he got orders and he and R will drive out of here on the 1st. E and I will have to be here for the packers/movers to come. They will be here the 1st-3rd at least and if they don’t get done on the 3rd they will come and load up the 5th. Then we will fly out either the 6th or 7th.
We are super sad to leave Alaska. We really really like it here. The area is great, school system is one the best in the nation, we have a great church and great friends. But we are happy to be going back to North Carolina and be closer to our families. Plus we already have great friends there too.
We’ve been working on getting the house ready for the packers. Just trying to go through and get rid of stuff we know we don’t want/need anymore and get all the stuff in it’s proper room. Not that the packers won’t mix up room a little but the more I can help them out the better.
I remember the first time we pcs’d (army move for those non military folks) I couldn’t even be at the house when the packers were there. It stressed me out to think they were touching my stuff and packing it all up. But after that it doesn’t bother me at all. Just stinks having to sit around the house while people do all the work. Well, now that I type that out….that doesn’t seem so bad, lol.
We looked at school in NC before but put it off because there was no reason to look if we weren’t moving soon and researching schools was sad. Like I said AK has one of the best systems in the country and where we are going in NC….well, not so much. We did find a couple schools in each county near the post we will be at. Emailed our good friend and realtor and she is pulling houses for us. I’d love to have a good list of places to look at before we get there.
Well anyways, I think I’ve made this ‘back to blogging’ post long enough. Don’t want to overwhelm you all. 😉
If you could live anywhere in the world……where would you live?
