It's been a week and 4 days since my house was packed up and loaded onto a truck and shipped away. I'm now without my favorite things; getting by with suitcases full of clothes and some toiletries. Seeing the house empty and moving on out was not a huge blow for me. It hit Kevin a bit harder. I love our place it's a great home... but I was never overly attached to it, you know? So we left our house and went to stay with my Dad. The plan was to be there until the end of Oct/beginning of Nov, then come to my mothers. Well, my dads dog (the dog our family had when I was in Middle and High School) is old, crotchety, and stuck in his ways. He was not a fan of my Brody! Then Monday AM he and my Dad's other dog attacked Brody twice within a minute. Brody's ok... a little bumped up but all-in-all he's ok, I think. I have to keep an eye on his eye... (haha) it's been blood shot since the attacks. Since that went down we knew we had to leave. So I packed, moved and unpacked all of our stuff twice within the span of one week. I'm exhausted.

Thankfully, we're settling into my mom's house. Brody is much happier here. I'm grateful to have both my parents here and to have options where I lay my head. It's not the same though. I wish I had my own home back, my own things. This kind of sucks. The sad part is I have no idea when it'll be any better. We finally received the amendment to Kevin's orders, which have my name on them. His orders also state that we're authorized "private rental housing." I got in touch with the housing office at Baumholder to verify that so we could start looking into our options out there. This guy was NO help what-so-ever. He just said that everyone E6 and below SHOULD be on post.... Yes our orders state otherwise- can you please clarify.... and NADA. So I'm still not sure whether we're be on or off post!

A perfect example of my distress: Today I went shopping with LB and we hit the Yankee Candle store. It's fall and there's plenty of great fall options! I really wanted to stock up with some great options... but then I remembered I have no end tables or dressers on which to put these candles! ={

I can't want to be settled into my space, be it on or off-post!

Glad to hear he's at least okay. It drives me crazy to not have my stuff. I've lived out of suitcases in other peoples spaces more in the last 2 years than I think any one should in their lifetime, but it comes with the territory I guess. Its so good to have family to be able to go to.
