Busy Times

I apologize for not blogging in a week but my life is really crazy right now. As most of you know my husband just finished flight school. There is a lot of pomp and circumstance that goes into a winging, most of it is just tradition. So I have to make a winging banner...which isn't done and I have at least 5 more hours to put into it until its done {needs to be hanging in my yard at the latest by Friday}. Tomorrow is his soft winging, not a problem but is takes up most of my day. Then Thursday is his winging, basically everyone gets dressed up and its a fancy graduation with top Navy/Marine officials there...lots of brass if you know what I mean. Then that night is a party...all the "wingers" get to let loose because they finally are done with flight school and everyone is moving. All of this isn't a problem, I can deal. So today my husband is stuck in another town because of winds and he couldn't fly back, so we are trying to find out where we are moving over the phone...long process, no-one seemed to be able to answer any questions. So then, we finally find out he got orders to Jacksonville...totally awesome thats where we wanted to go and its only 6 hours away. This would be such an easy move, we have never been able to move this close before. So then he calls back and tells me that his replacement air group {rag} is in San Diego. Ok I'm a little stunned, but still I can deal with moving to San Diego for 9 months and then back to Florida, because we will be in Jacksonville for about 3 1/2 years.
So he gets home about an hour ago and tells me, he thinks we might have to be in San Diego by April 3rd, but he will not know for sure until Monday!!!! Here is when I am freaking losing my beans. What this means is we can't start our move until next week but thats when we need to have movers here, because it takes about 4-5 days to drive to CA from here in sunny FL. How do I know that...because I'm crazy and drove home a few summers ago. Basically I need to set up a move and find a house by Monday or Tuesday. I'm really going to be fine after I have a few shots of whatever liquor we have in our house. If I was a smoker I think I would need a cigarette right about now. So this is why I havn't been blogging, I've been getting ready for this winging and we just had family fly in from CA today. I hope I get to blog again before Easter but if I don't I hope all of you have a great Easter and Good Friday, or at least enjoy the day off >"<>

Congrats - this is a big deal (I know after spending 24 years in the Navy) so I am excited for you all!! Oh, I have been in your shoes girl - had to move with less than a month's notice and we were frantic! You will love SD though and I just moved from Jacksonville which we loved and we still have a house there. If you need any questions answered about schools and such, I would be happy to help! Hang in there girl!! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

Hey! I just stumbled upon your blog, which is awesome because my husband is winging in 7 days! I've just recently heard about the winging banner and am waiting on instructions so I can try and scramble to get it done! We're waiting on hearing where we're going next. So much anxiety! Anyway, I'm glad I found your blog. Love the pictures of the banner and the winging! My blog is http://wdusharm.blogspot.com if you're interested!
