Sorry it's been a bit since I last posted! I've been a very busy girl! So let's see what I need to catch up on with you..
Christmas...it was nice. We stayed in Va. Was a quiet Christmas this year. But Rob and I were together so it was a nice change of pace!
We left for Michigan for New Years. Got to see family on both sides, which was great! Amazing how much the nieces have all grown! It's always hard to say goodbye, but we know we will probably be back soon!
So this is where the busy comes in. With Rob doing lots of detachments for the past several months, I've been on my own a lot! As of now, he's on anther det on the USS Bush. Only a month long as far as we know. In the meantime, before he left, we worked frantically to get the house ready to be put up on the market. Still no physical orders in hand, but we did get word that the Dearborn office in Michigan has an opening. We will find out when Rob gets back where the situation stands. So since we will have to leave come May, we are getting the house listed. Since he's gone again, it's up to me to finish the house work and get the realtor in here to sign paperwork. I've been working like crazy to get the house painted, organized, and cleaned. I am hopeful to get it listed by very early next week. Hopefully not too long after Rob will be home with me for the actual sale. This will (unless something changes) be his last det in this command. He will not make deployment, so I'm sure he won't mind not seeing the boat for awhile! If we do get orders in hand once he's back, and it is in MI, then we have a 10 day pass to go house hunting. very much up in the air until we do have the papers, and get our house rolling. But as the Navy always says "hurry up and wait" Things are starting to somewhat come together though, which is relieving a lot of stress. For us, that is what is going on lately. Sorry we are both MIA most of the time. I promise this won't last forever! I will keep everyone up to date on the orders and as well as location and date! Until then, we wait! I hope by early March we will have a new state to start calling home! Talk to you real soon!
