We're staying an extra month at Fort Drum and leaving on Oct. 8th so that we don't have to pay the huge fine Housing wanted us to pay for not giving them 30 days notice because Uncle Sam didn't give Chris
the information and paperwork he needed to do so.
I called to reschedule an interview I had for the 15th of this month (and haven't heard back, not good!), but I have another two or three where I just have to call once I get to Florida and those are promising. I am SO looking forward to being gainfully employed again!
I'm also looking forward to organizing a new place. And I really want to organize
it this time. I had plans for this place, but they involved having a basement and the garage couldn't substitute because when it snowed we had to put the car in there and it's not a big garage as it is. I'm not sure what I'll be able to do in an apartment and later in a house (we'll be getting all our household goods at once, and Chris'll be doing his kid on Christmas morning act, opening a box, taking stuff out, leaving it around, doing the same thing with the next box when I'd prefer to keep stuff in boxes until needed and then a year or so later sell/toss/give away what's still in the boxes after that time) but I'm once again browsing the DIY sites for storage and organization ideas. I *WILL* have neatness and organization!
Also, Chris and I are going out to dinner tonight. He actually asked if I wanted to go to Olive Garden, just the two of us.
I think this is our first "traditional date."
We've been married for six years. :P
