YES!! It Pays to Be Nice Sometimes...

Well the housing issue is almost resolved. I have been very fortunate. Thanks to my patience, and my polite phone calls to GMH, along with one very frustrated visit after a nasty phone call FROM Navy Housing Office, I am getting what I wanted -- a 3 BR house WITH a garage!

Now, I know the street it is on, but because the family is still there and doesn't vacate until the week of Nessa's wedding, I am not supposed to know the address. But I do have to sign an "acceptance" piece of paperwork today to file with Housing so I don't get another rude and vile phone call. That paperwork will have the address. So I'm just gonna drive by my new house....that's not gonna hurt anyone, right? Not gonna go inside or anything....and if I just happen to have a friends who have houses on that street who live on the exact same side of the duplex and take a look to see their layout again so I can do some planning on where to put stuff, I'm not breaking any rules, right? hehehe....

The only catch to this whole thing is that once the place is vacated, I have about 10 days to wait to move in, because Maintenance has to repaint, etc. So....that puts my move right around my Birthday/Labor Day weekend. I am not sure how many people are going to be able to help me then, but I certainly am going to be trying my hardest to get some people together. My last resort? Making a call to the Ombudsman who can find some people she knows....

My other problem? I will be moving approximately the week school starts...talk about confusing for me and Emily!! I suppose I'll just have to get through it though. I am excited. I can't wait to see my new place. I can't wait to be able to store things and not have them get ruined by the weather or insects and termites shavings.....oh to have a dining room and my own bathroom!! Holy Moses - a bathroom DOWNSTAIRS!! I am foaming at the mouth just thinking about it!!!

So that's my happy news.....oh yes, and certainly cannot forget --

21 DAYS UNTIL MY BIRTHDAY!!!!

I am so happy for you. I know some of what you are feeling.
I can see the house we want to buy on the internet We must sell the one we are in or my daughter has to sell hers. Then we have to give the people who are living there 30 days.
