    By the time this move is complete...

    Advertisements
    It will be time to move again! That's how it feels at least.

    I came to Hawaii a month ago (minus the week long trip back to the East Coast to get the dogs). I feel like I should be more settled by now. Our travel pay still isn't worked out - none of it, not TLA, TLE, or DLA. And his regular pay is still screwed up, even though it was a homeport change and he never left the command.

    Right now, the hardest thing is dealing with the car we left behind on the East Coast. I wish I had driven it cross country like I originally planned, and sent it from Cali. But noooooo, I listened to the peeps at PSD who said I wouldn't get mileage and per diem for that, and didn't do it. Too bad that turned out to be incorrect. I can't afford to send it here from the East Coast, and I can't afford to pay it off. Selling it with a lien still on it is proving to be very difficult. And in 5 weeks, I've only had two offers - even with it priced well below Kelly Blue Book value.

    I just want the move to behind us, all wrapped up neat and tidy and tied with a bow. Done.

    How long does it usually take you to feel settled after a move?

    We don't have our TLE yet either. And hoping and praying that the COLA kicks in this next pay period.

    I know that feeling. Our first move to Germany was like that.

    I feel you. I'm in the middle of pcsing right now and it feels like it'll never end. Then when I think we'll be settled DH is set to deploy again and I'm going to be in this new place completely lost...

    Yes - PRAYING that COLA and the Hawaii BAH kick in. Paying Hawaii Allotment to housing with Norfolk BAH coming in really hurt this month on top of everything else. It was supposed to start on 3/23, but we still haven't seen it.

    Aw thanks! And you know what - I have to find a new orthodontist, pronto. But with all the pay issues, I'm scared to put out the funds to start up with someone new!

    That's harsh. I feel really lucky to be coming somewhere for the second time, so I already know a lot. That is a good feeling. I hope you learn your way around fast!
