Finally, after a month of ups and downs, paperwork and lost emails, and the never ending texts to poor Sam, “Any news on our PCS?” (permanent change of station) –
I can say with a little more confidence (although nothing is ever certain till you’re there)
we are moving to…
FT. BRAGG, NORTH CAROLINA!!!!
And people? My head literally felt like it exploded when Sam told me. I actually screamed. He was so surprised, saying, “Wow, I didn’t think you’d be that excited.”
BUT I AM.
It’s the SOUTH. The real South! And for anyone who’s read me long enough, you know my love of all things Southern. I would have gladly stayed in Georgia the times we went to visit Sam. I adored it all. The humidity. The sweet tea. The accents. The trees. The green. THE EVERYTHING SOUTHERN.
I can’t wait. I seriously can’t wait to be there and while I know there are downsides to any station, any city, any part of the country – I’m so thrilled to have the chance to experience North Carolina and be near so many of the ladies from blogging that I adore. Any time I start to worry I think about how we’re pretty happy and settled here – so HECK. It can happen anywhere. I know that now.
We don’t have an exact moving date yet but it’s soon. Before this baby arrives anyway.
Which is a whole other issue but you know what? Things like that tend to work out somehow. Look at here. And it’s been nearly 2 years, we made it. It all worked out. I didn’t think it would, I didn’t think I’d survive that first summer with 10 days in a miserable hotel in 108* heat and 4 cats and an 18 month old and no where to live – but we made it! We made it. And we’ll do it all again.
Hopefully sans horrible hotel with cats and death heat.
So North Carolina – here we come!
