I have had a great few days. As a follow up to my whiney post the other day Debbie downer is gone and Dixie sunshine is back in place. I received a phone call Sunday and someone wanted to see the bug. Ended up selling it to a super cool young couple that wanted to hippie paint it to advertise their website selling custom art. How awesome is that!

But I don't wanna

Wanna know a secret. I have a love/hate relationship with change. And right now we are on the hate side.
I love being new places and meeting new people but I hate all of the build up and excitement that comes before you make a major change in life.
This is part of the reason why my wedding was planned so quickly and low key. I could not handle 1+year of planning, someone would have killed me if I hadn't killed them first.
Right now I am in the midst of one of the most exciting changes in my life. But to tell you the truth I just don't want to do it. This is the part I hate. Here is my to-do list for the next week:
Finish packing living room
Pack kitchen
Pack guest room
Pack bedroom
Have trailer hitch installed on SUV
Work out last day with boss
MBA classes start

And the following week:
Last day at work
Pickup trailer
Load trailer
Drive to moms to register SUV in proper state
Drive to VA
Unload trailer (possibly without hubby's help depending on duty schedule)
Get Internet in Norfolk apt so I can do my class work.

And somewhere in the midst of all of this try and sell our Bug.

All I really want to do is crawl back in bed with the puppies and wake up in VA. Where is my fairy godmother when I need her??

I got a job!!!!

I am so excited! I received and accepted an absolutely amazing job offer in Virginia this week. I am so stinkin excited to finally be able to move to VA with hubby I think this is really going to make the "navy wife" thing a little more real. Up until now we have spent a ton of time living apart but it wasn't all because of the military and had kind of become our normal. I have 2 weeks to get moved and have a plan in place that I really hope works out. Now just to get everything packed. Today's goal-living room & kitchen. Tomorrows goal guest room. Next weeks goal bedroom. Think I can do it? I'm not so sure. Wish me luck!!!
