    When do we go? Who knows!

    Advertisements
    Well Topher and I thought we had a sort-of plan...
    Getting married July 21, moving to VA while he was stashed at the unit and then moving to FL for his requested Oct 5 report date.

    He called me today to tell me that there's apparently going to be a shortage of people ready to start in June and July. They wanted him to go down June 1...
    But because of the wedding they changed it to August 3 ... written in Jell-O of course.
    I was laughing when he told me, because I expected as much. He was like, "I think you're going to be used to this (Navy stuff) before I am!"

    This will actually simplify a lot though. Instead of moving twice, we'll move once. And it'll be right after our honeymoon. I can unpack and get us settled in while he starts doing his thing...

    Though it does increase the speed at which I need to find a place near Pensacola for us.

    We will.
    When we get back from our honeymoon, assuming the August 3 date sticks, he'll still have to go back up to VA for a day or two before he officially detaches from the unit, so he'll be able to add me and everything then.

    Thanks Kara.
    We are both excited!
    It's time to end this chapter of our long-distance relationship... 5 years of college three states away (well 5 for him, 4 for me)... what were we thinking?

    It'll be all...
