I couldn't make this up...and I really wouldn't want to make this up. Remember the roller coaster I've said we were on about moving or not?
Well, last I blogged the move was on, the house was going on the market, we were looking at houses at our next location. Our timeline was tight, and I was stressed out. But this is exactly what we wanted so it was finally working out for us. We've been investing boat loads of money into making the house ready to sell and fixing issues that may come up at inspection.
Today, 4 hours before our house goes on the market, Pat's boss calls and says that the Commanding General got involved. They got the orders deleted for 9 people, and Pat is one of them.
I cannot explain how upset, surprised, angry, etc we are right now. Have I mentioned that I'm paying for a storage locker that is now filled with 1/2 of my household goods and ALL my kids toys.
So now it looks like we will be getting out of the Army. Job hunting is started big time. It is a terrifying idea transition to the civilian world. I know that it may seem like a rash decision based on emotion, but it has been on our minds for a VERY long time. It's been almost 8 years in the military, during which we've felt yanked around on a short leash. We want a bit more freedom and choice.
We'll see what happens next I guess.
