We've Moved

October 29th, 2018 at 02:28 pm

We have arrived at our new duty station. My husband is reporting for the first time this morning. He is thankful that this move the job is something he knows how to do, as it is the same as what he has been doing. So we are finding our new normal. Moving to a new town is very stressful because EVERYTHING is new. It's very disorientating. And I'm honestly struggling a bit with it this time more than ever. Some of that may be because I don't have the distraction of my kids, who this time are away at college.

I am determined to keep moving forward and finding my new normal in this place. I already got out to do a walk after my husband left for work, which is what I usually do. The difference is it is a new route, new people and sounds around. But soon, it will feel normal. Smile

My big goal for today is to get all our finances in order. So many receipts from the trip to record. We had quite a few days of living in a hotel and eating out. We will get travel reimbursement at some point to cover all the costs, but I need to make sure credit cards are paid on time. I also need to update our address in many places.

I hope to be back regularly soon!

    I'm glad your move is behind you! I hear you on the disorientation. It takes a while to get used to a new town, but the thing to do is, as you say, move forward and find your new normal. I remember when I moved here -- everything was so different and scary -- but now it's just home.

    I know you don't want to share where you are but can you tell us the general region? I like to know where my friends are. Smile If not, that's okay.

    Good luck! And congratulations. Is it easier to move having rented? Do you feel less tied to a place? Or did it not really matter?
