Okay so I am interested in moving off base and wondering if anyone in the area has any advice or info about off base area's. is it good ?safe? bad? anyway if you do i would really appreciate it! we…Continue
That's awesome that he likes it.. it's always better to have the job you love.. :) . are you guys still on base or have you moved yet? also have you gone to the thrift store? . I live right behind it.. I just wanted to know if they had good stuff.
Does he like being a Mechanic?.. and yes it was perfect timing.. Even with the military clause we thought our landlord would find a way to keep charging us. My husband always said she was money hungry and would do anything to get money from us.. since we moved in she increased our rent three times.. I was so glad to get out of there.
He's an ET.. He loves it... but he also loves tools and working on the car and just random things.. so now he's like I wish I was a MM.. but being a ET will challenge him. So it's good.. :) .. And yea he's in A school.. Oh that's good.. We almost had to use the military clause at our last apartment but luckily two days before we moved i got someone to sublease my apt. What's your husband again?
Wow that's a long wait.. But I guess it would be nice to have 6 months or so where he doesn't have to be at school..I know my husband leaves at 6am and isn't home til 7pm or 8pm...I don't know what the hours are like in power school..But my hubby just started so he's still on the mandatory hours. How long is your lease for or did you find one to do month to month?
Oh i didn't know it worked like that i thought with base housing you just lived there until you they got stationed somewhere else. a 3 bedroom is pretty big for just two people and dogs..will you be coming out with more money living off base?
well we signed a 6 month lease when we got here, and the way it workedwas if we signed a 6mo lease we would get 200 off rent since we were in old housing, but once its up you can sign another one and continue to recieve that money or be month to month in which case yo would not get anything off rent. we actually put in our 30 days notice yesterday. we have a 3 bed. 2 bath.
Oh I'm not sure either. I just know the walmart out that way is a lot nicer and not as packed. We haven't really shopped on base but once since we moved here. Yes we have one of the newer houses. I love it.. We ended up with a 4 bedroom for the three of us. So we are using one of the spare rooms for the computer and one will be the spare room for when John Pauls family comes to visit or some of my friends back home who wants to come up here.. the room we have the computer is is like extremely tiny.
Oh that isn't bad. Townhouses are nice. Once you sign up for on base housing do they let you get off or do you have to wait? I haven't seen the old houses. A few of the girls on my FB lives in them but I haven't met them yet either. lol.. Do you have a one or two bedroom right now?
yes its red bank, but once you hit a certain point not sure where it becomes st.james .
So you are in new houses!? right on!yeah we just got approved for a townhouse like 5 min from base and its hella cheaper and nicer, lol we are in old housing, so i guess it doesnt take much. like the old houses are huge! but its just my hub and i and our 2 dogs so we dont need all that room ya know?!
