Next week marks our 3rd year at this base! CRAZY! But what is even crazier is that we are not PCSing (moving). We have never been stationed at one base for longer than 3 years. In fact, we have never lived in a house longer than 2 1/2 years! It is kind of a bittersweet feeling. We really love it at this base, but that itch is there to move.
For our families that read this blog, NO we have no intentions of getting orders. We are trying to stay here. But it is always fun to pick up and go somewhere new. I mean who would've ever thought we would live in England (the country!) or Utah. Heck, we never dreamed of even taking a vacation to either destination.
We have a good thing going at this base. We are much closer to family. It is a great place to raise a family. The schools are great! The cost of living isn't out of this world. It just feels like something is missing. Oh wait, there is no shopping for a 45 minute radius. For some crazy reason, I have adjusted to driving to go shopping. I mean it does make it more exciting when we do drive to the city and see those pretty malls!
At the end of the day, it is really nice to call a place home for longer than 3 years.
