Things are moving right along

Things are seeming to fall into place very quickly for us, hopefully this is a good trend and something bad isn't right around the corner. Hubby will be getting the keys to our new place on post right around Feb 9th! I'm excited and really wish I could be there for it, but I'll be along not to far after. We officially have a plan in place and leave scheduled for him to move me from my home on the beautiful Florida Space Coast to Texas. I have even put in my notice at work!

I have mixed feelings on Texas. I will be landlocked, and I am not a fan. No more, although infrequent now days, off shore fishing for me. No more random strolls on the beach at all hours of the day and night. No more smell of the ocean. I don't know how well this is going to go for me. Yet, I am keeping as much of an open mind as possible. I also keep telling myself that this is not permanent. I can always come back, even if its 25years from now. I am also excited to get to be in the same state and house with my husband for more than 2 weeks at a time. This will definitely be an adjustment for us, but I think we will survive it just fine. It will be nice to get to see a new area and find new places to hang out and things to do. There will definitely be upsides to this, but there's a lot of change for me as well. I may be a Navy Brat, but I got extremely lucky on the moving aspect and only moved once. I've been here for most of my life, talk about a big adjustment coming up.

I'm also excited and sad about putting in my notice at work today. I have been there for over three years. I did all of my clinical rotations where I am and got hired after. My coworkers are definitely family to me. We've been through a lot together, including being bought out my another company and getting "used" to them. I may not like who I work for now, but I love who I work with. They are the reason I wanted to work there after clinicals and have stayed there after the corporation took over. It will definitely be a sad last day for me, almost like the last day of school.

I have a feeling I will have many homesick days ahead of me. Thankfully I have a very loving and understanding husband that has promised me when I need absolutely need it, he'll find a way to get me home for a few days. I'm a big girl though, and just like my mom could do it, I know I can. Now let's hope the good vibes keep flowing and the other shoe is quite far away before it drops.
