The Nutshell household is DONE WITH COLLEGE!!!!
That's right!!! My dear husband is graduating next week, and getting commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Army. And we are set for active duty!
|This is Ben's pre-commissioning|
pic... so no gold bars yet!
Originally, his orders were for the first week of the new year, in January. But slots opened and he got bumped up and late last night we were informed that he is to report for duty the first week of Sept. That gives us just a few weeks to get this household in order and packed up!
Yeah, I am a little stressed. This will be my first military move. It's all new to me. But I am brave, sort of, and I figure it out, eventually.
So Oklahoma here we come!!! Well, at least for 5 months... then we will be moving again to wherever the station Ben. I am really grateful that we will be missing tornado season....
It is scary... we just gave our 30 day notice to our housing and Ben's part-time job. It seems so PERMANENT! And it makes it all feel so real! As it should... but I guess we have just lived the student lifestyle for so long, living from pay-check to pay-check it all seems so weird that it is about to change!!
I hope you all will stick around for more of our adventures! It can only get crazier from here on out right?
PS -- For you PCS pros, what is your best advice for a newbie???
