Home Sweet Home

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.

  1. Time for you to move!! lol I can't believe we were in UT for 7 yrs, Chuck never went to Korea or SWA (his knees saved him on that) This Fall he will have been out for 6 yrs... hard to remember what it was like

  2. I hope we are as lucky as you! Moving often isn't something either of us look forward too. Guess we picked the wrong line of work for that :)

  3. Aw, well that's great that you're getting to stay some place that you love.

  4. By the time we PCS next week, we will have been here 5 years. The longest we've been anywhere (or I've been anywhere since I was 11). We really put down roots here and loved it but career advancement wise, it was time. Believe it or not, I am looking forward to the move (just not the heat).


Thanks for stopping by!!!
