We always thougt that it was best to live on base but idont kno much abt hosuing and how everything goes!! We have a 18 mnth old daughter and an apartment sounds so small you kno? But idk yet I guess something we gotta figure out lol
Hey my name is Jessica I was just wondering if you could help me out on a few things since it looks like you went through the same stages im prolly going to go through?
well first off my husband graduates july 23 and will be going to Pensacola for A school to be an AM. his a school is 5 weeks or so but don't know how long it will take to class up or start. I just had our first child on june 9 while he was in bootcamp he hasn't yet gotten to see him but will next week at graduation. well I don't want him to end up down there for months and not be able to see us so I was thinking about moving down there while he is in A school we only live 4 1/2 hours away...so it wouldnt cost that much to move but I don't know if it would be worth it I don't want to move down there and only be able to see him on the weekends.. did you move down there while ur hubby was in a school and was it worth the move? did you get to see him on week days too? lol sorry about all the questions its just I can't seem to get the answers from him becauuse no one knows anything
