I just realized that I have less than three months left with the life as I've known it for the past 20 years. So much will be changing in such a short time. To be perfectly honest, I'm a little scared. I'm excited, but still hesitant. It takes a lot to shove me out of my comfort zone and moving a thousand miles away is just about enough to send me over the edge of it! I know that as long as Blair and I are together, we'll be fine.
I have also realized that I have a TON of stuff to do! I have to put the house up for rent, find a job, map out our drive to Minot (plus stops in Georgia, Tennessee, and Indiana), apply for a nurses license in North Dakota, find somewhere to live in Minot till we get base housing, schedule the packers to come, decide what I want put into storage until we get a house on base, figure out if we have to meet the movers up there or just leave everything in storage, quit the job I love here...this is all stuff off the top of my head. I know that there are a lot of things I'm not thinking of right now that I have to do. I don't know if y'all realize, but I'm a list maker. Seeing all of this written out seems overwhelming. Yet, oddly, it makes me feel better. I like lists because then I don't forget anything. And anyone who knows me knows I have a horrible memory!!
If anyone has suggestions on how to make my stressed-out-ness go away, please feel free to tell me. All of you military wives (or those who've moved around a lot) are welcome to tell me any little "inside" perspective from your previous moves. I would appreciate it greatly! I feel at a total loss here. I don't know where to start and that is the most daunting.
I guess what I'm trying to say is "HELP!"
