What to do for phase two? Panic. Well, that began when I first learned we were moving overseas, but now I really need to turn on my panic mode to get a few key things accomplished. Here’s phase two:
Scheduling is key, whether moving with the military or not. Schedule everything possible is my plan. This will let me plan out the rest of the move and allow me to focus on the next step. My husband and I have briefings to attend, paperwork to fill out, appointments to schedule and I even have to pass a screening to decide if I’m sane or not. Seriously. I really do. I’m a bit nervous about that bit, but I’m sure it will sort itself later.
We also have passport applications to complete, doctor (and veterinarian!) appointments to make, packers and movers to schedule, property managers to interview and an all-out bash to plan to say good-bye to our fabulous friends!
I am most stressed about moving the animals, yes more than my children (the flight isn’t much longer than flying to Arizona and I’m sure the girls will be just fine). We have two, huge, old cats and a little, sweet dachshund to move with us. Due to the time of year, transport will be an issue. I really hope to get some answers in the briefing!
Rusty has to go and will probably score a ride with us at Regan’s feet. He loves Regan.
So here are my tasks to complete by the end of the weekend: passport applications, doctor and veterinarian appointments and, well, that’s it. The rest will have to wait a week, until our first briefing is complete.
