LTJG Husband got an early Christmas present yesterday: written orders! So now that we have those in hand, we feel pretty safe sharing with you all where this military circus is headed next.
We’re moving to….
Well…kind of. The situation currently is that while LTJG Husband has orders to and a job on Coronado, military housing there has a nice long two year wait list. TWO. YEARS.
With military housing not an option right now, we’ve narrowed down our housing options to:
- Rent somewhere between North County and Coronado so we can stay close-ish to our community and family up here, while cutting down on LTJG Husband’s commute time
- Take the leap into becoming homeowners with plans to rent it out when we PCS.
- Throw caution and good financial sense to the wind and spend a small fortune each month renting on Coronado so LTJG Husband can bike to work and Kai can go to one of the best public schools in the county…
So, all in all, we aren’t sure at this point if we’re actually moving to Coronado, but we are really stoked that we get to stay here in San Diego for another three years and still plan to experience a fair amount of changes during this tour even if it wasn’t the big move we thought might be coming.
One of the biggest “thankfuls” we have for these orders is that LTJG Husband will be detaching from the ship earlier than his original date in order to join the new command, so he won’t have to deploy again like we originally had planned on! #happydance
That’s all we know for now, but I’ll be sure to keep you all in the loop with our next set of adventures. Stay tuned!
