Changes are Looming

April 5th, 2011 at 08:52 am

Changes will be happening here in the next year. Primarily our living situation. My husband isn't even home from deployment, but we expect him to be going to school this summer. We are just waiting on orders. This is considered a permanent move from the military's stand point. The school is for about four months and from there he will then need to move to his next assignment. Wherever that is! We don't know yet. However, that secret location is where we will all end up in 2012.

Do you know what this does to me from a financial standpoint? I'm going crazy thinking of paying for two households for at least 5 months, but up to 10. We still have to buy DH a vehicle just to get to and from work once he returns. I wondering if we should finance more of the vehicle than planned just to have cash for maintaining two households. Decisions. Decisions.

We could move with him at the same time to school and then to the next location. Our consideration is the girls. My oldest will be a 9th grader and the youngest a 6th grader starting middle school. I don't think they should have to move twice in a school year. Once will be enough.

I do feel fortunate to have the cash to pay for two households, but it isn't really how I want to spend our extra funds, ya know? Stay tuned there will be more to this saga at some point.

    Wow, that sounds hard.

    There were a lot of Navy families in my grade school since we were close to a base. I'll always remember one particular girl who'd had to move repeatedly. She was so desperate to make friends quickly that she was driving away potential friends. We tried to be kind to her.

    How much moving a kid can bear would depend on the kid and the family, but this poor little girl--oh, I think she was broken by all the moving. I mean, that is what I figured as a 13 year old myself.

    Holy cow. That's a lot of logistics. Well, look on the bright side--at least it'll make for some interesting blogging!

    I don't envy you the task, but I know I'm going to go through some similarly crazy things when we move to England in 4-6 years.
