Good Morning everyone! Just thought I'd request prayer for our upcoming move and all the hassles and issues we're dealing with presently! Whew! Not an easy task moving to your first base. Yesterday, we had to completely empty our car and drive an hour away to weigh our truck, since we have to do a partial move! Then we had to load it down as much as we could so that we get the moving money we need to actually pull this stuff to NY. Then drive it back to the weigh station...and back to the cabin where we unload everything again!!! I'm tired!! We have to do a partial move, because we will be staying in temporary housing for I don't know how long. I need to pack kitchen, bedding, and enough clothes to keep us clothed and comfortable...for hopefully not to long! Anyway, so much paperwork ....and nobody has the correct number to any department...so you call a million different numbers and talk to a bunch of Sallys' and Davids' before you find the right person, who then transfers you to the right "Lynda" you were looking for! *sigh* Welcome to the army! We have much more paperwork and planning to do, plus a trip to FT Lewis three hours away, before we move a week from Monday!!!! AAAUUGGGHHH!!! Talk about putting your faith to the test! We also were told the waiting list for the housing we're eligible for(five- bedroom) is a two year wait list right now. I asked about the houses with less rooms....will hopefully find out soon...of course the wait list can change before we get there...but this is a necessary need when we arrive in NY as the temporary lodging is not cheap! Thank you so much for your prayers!!! Have a good day!
