Thoughts of Moving

When you are in the military, especially right now, you always have to have a back-up plan.  Be prepared just in case this is your last term.  Sam will be putting in for PTS, Preform To Serve, in September, and that will determine if we will be staying in the Navy, or if we will be civilians in 2 years.  I told my mom last night that 2 years was a long time, but honestly, it's really not. 

Last night Sam and I were watching the show House Hunters.  They were in a city in the mid-west and the scenery, houses, amount of land for your money, was amazing.  So, we started looking at houses in Tennessee.  We had already been contemplating Oklahoma before, so it's not much further.  There were many houses that appealed to us that are well within our budget.  I am going to do some more research into the schools, and work, and of pray about it.  God has a plan for us!  Is this it?  I'm not sure, we will see!

Now of course, all of this is just when we get out.  It can be 2 years from now, it can be 6 years from now!  Like I said we just want to have something planned out. 


  1. Good luck! I know everything will work out the way it is supposed to. We are trying to see where life is going to take us in 3 years also.

  2. My vote is for oklahoma!! Thats where I'm gonna be in less than 5 years! For the most part, the people there are so wonderful (minus my mother-in-law!!) and it is so affordable!!
    love you and miss you lots!

  3. Shelly ~ I think you two are being VERY WISE! Too often I see sailors and their families at my desk in a panic because they had no back-up plan with the latest ERB discharges being the hardest. If you need anything to help with that plan, don't hesitate to ask. I can do a financial, relocation, and transition plan with you at you convenience. Just let me know! Kathleen Johnson
