It's a lot of work to move overseas!!

Wow- life has been a whirlwind!!   Once we got our orders to Germany it has been simply chaotic.  So much to do and check and follow up on.

We finally received our official orders.  You really can't do all the super important stuff without those. Now we can finally schedule our household goods to be picked up and ship our vehicle. Plus add in the Holidays at the same time make for some serious chaos.

We took a trip home to see family and left our 2 dogs with them.  :-(   It will be a much easier move without them plus we can travel freely while overseas but I sure do miss them.  I fell like I lost 2 of my kids.  I am SOOOO thankful that our family was able to take them in. It is such a huge relief to know that good, caring people are giving them the love they need. It has made for a much easier transition then I expected for our daughter and me.

We still haven't sold our house but it IS the Holiday season. Not too many people looking to buy a house during Christmas. Luckily we have 2 prospect even though they want to wait until January.

I know that God has a plan and it all will work out.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season. Remember to say a prayer for all our troops and there families left behind.

My husband is in the Air Force as well, we moved to Aviano AB in Italy last April. WOW, what a change! What base are you moving to in Germany? We were just up at Ramstein a few weeks ago, got snowed on!

I know I don't comment really- but I read your blog. My husband just left for Greenland for a year (until December of 2011) and after he returns, we head to Germany as well! Maybe we can meet! =) Good luck!!!
