I keep looking at the calender and seeing how little time there is between now and our still nebulous move date. The orders were finalized on Tuesday so our location is official. My husband still has to negotiate between his current assignment that wants to keep him for as long as possible, our need to have as much house hunting time as possible and the unknown needs of his new command. We had been also trying to add into the mix the plans of my husband's youngest sister who is currently living in Germany and getting married to a German around the time of our move. They were planning on a bit of a tour of the US so we could all meet him but she is not firming up her dates fast enough.
I am struggling with so many competing interests. I want to get rid of as much junk as possible, but I also want to enjoy the time I have here and have fun with my friends. I also have a lot of knitting in my head that I want to get done, I would like to give some goodbye gifts to some friends here but I may end up having to mail them if I get them done at all. Added to all of this I have to maintain my house and keep my kids from killing each other. It has seemed that of late the only way to have a peaceful morning is for me to take the kids somewhere which kind of ruins any plans to get anything done around the house. I really think that someone needs to get on board with inventing beaming. That would make my life so much easier.
