Month of Madness!

Sunset by the Arctic Circle. Beautiful Alaska!

Packing houses and moving is like a second language to me. In two and a half years of marriage this is going to be my FOURTH move. We had the foreclosed landlord wasn't paying the bills house,my move to Michigan while J was deployed, the move to this condo last summer and now the trip to the lower 48. Let me just say when we get to Georgia we better find something we really like because my butt is staying parked for the three years we are there!

Jason and I gave our thirty day notice to our landlord and she has been really great. She said she would list the home again and start showing it towards the end of the month, but tonight she has informed me she already has people wanting to come Wednesday. Now that means this place needs to be clean and ready for her to show and it is just starting to becoming a scene of complete madness.

We are doing a full DITY move where the Army pays us (trust me this was not my choice) and we are responsible to hire our own moving company and pack our own things (can you tell now it really wasn't my choice). We are planning on being packed and out of here in four weeks when the movers come to pick up the trailer and spending the last few days on post before we head out. We have decided to spend two weeks traveling so we can see a little bit of the country and truly enjoy it as the road trip of a life time. Then we will spend two weeks seeing family in Michigan before making the final drive down to Georgia.

Jason doesn't go to school for a few more months and part of me is already sad to have to say goodbye for 2+ months again in less than a year of him being home. Hopefully we can work it out that I can go visit him a time or two before he graduates. :)

So between working, packing, Jason clearing, planning our trip, spending time with friends and family before we go and all of those other things that come with moving this month is going to be crazy! Ohhh yes and eating our way through the pantry. Isn't that always the worst part of moving? :)

Phew!

Are you driving from Alaska to Georgia? I have drove from Illinois to Seattle before and I loved it (for the most part). I told my hubs I wanted to drive to Alaska from Illinois next summer and he thinks I'm nuts!

Jessica said...

You better come visit me on the way down or ELSE!
HA! I'm so excited to have you in the same time zone and possibly in the same location come August/Sept!

YAHOOOOOOOOO!

oh my god, this photo is amazing! What would you say to someone who is thinking of going to Alaska for 3 years? My husband and I are seriously considering Alaska.

Amanda said...

the road trip is gonna be awesome! but the DITY move, well, good luck! haha!

JG said...

Hubs wants to do a DITY move, as well. And of course, it's not MY choice. Some stupid girl at his work (and I mean stupid as in unintelligent) told him that she made a boatload of money that way. We'll see how this one goes, and hopefully it'll convince him that the Army offers to move you for a reason!!

You're amazing Teresa! I hate moving with a passion. I hope it all goes as smoothly as possible! At least it will be an adventure- that is something to appreciate about the Army! Who else could take a trip like you will down to the lower 48?! : )

Jessica said...

I can't believe you are doing a full DITY move. We did a partial, and it wasn't too bad but it wasn't that great either! I hope you have fun on your move, and enjoy the South! I'm from the South, and I can't wait to get back there after living in NY.

I'm a new follower to your blog!
