Finally Ready For This PCS

30 May 2013

Today has been a super busy day for me. The Husband finally sat down with me and we came up with our game plan.

I contacted US Airways and purchased our two one way tickets to Jacksonville, Floriday. We fly out on Saturday, June 1st. I scheduled a vehicle transportation company to pick our vehicles up on Friday, May 31st.

Looking around for airline tickets was a hard task. I had to contact the airlines and ask for a military discount. The discount is not offered on all flights everyday. So I had to work my schedule around the available flights. Tickets were expensive and US Airways offered me the best rate. We can check in 4 bags and we can carry two bags each onto the plane with us. I'm going to try and pack all of our stuff up in those eight bags. lol

The next task was for me to schedule our vehicles to be picked up before we leave. It is very expensive to ship your car. Especially since we are trying to ship ours 2300 miles away. For two cars it's going to run us about $1800!

This is expensive but it works better for us. We are not up for the drive at all. It's easier for us to fly out there. The navy offers us some moving allowances and they will cover all of our expenses. We could of pocketed a lot of money if we decided to drive out there and ship one car.

As you see we made our minds up last minute. This should have been planned months ago but we didnt make our final decisions till now. I'm looking forward to starting our life at our new Duty Station.

It's Official...I'm sick!

24 May 2013

I have been feeling horrible these past few days. First I had a couple of large bumps under my arm. I went to the doctor and he gave me some antibiotics and said that they are probably caused from ingrown hairs from shaving.

Then those bumps went away and I got a bump on my inner thigh. This bump hurt worst then those other bumps. I ended up going to the E.R. and they gave me some more antibiotics. Told me it could be a bug bite because it was hard and it started to itch. They gave me some cream for it also.

I hope I do not get any more bumps. lol. I've also been having an upset stomach. So these last two days I've been in bed and sleeping a lot just so I do not have to walk around and feel the pain from the bump on my leg.

Today is the first time in a few days that I've actually started to feel better. The bump is still a little irritated but the pain is not as bad. Hopefully I wake up tomorrow and the bump is healed and all the pain is gone. Pray for me!

Yesterday my cousin came home to visit the family. He's a Senior Chief in the Navy. He's currently stationed in Japan. My family is pretty close so we all were at my grandmothers house yesterday. It was nice to have us all in one place. Especially since we are leaving California soon.

My Weekend

18 May 2013

Yesterday was the start of my weekend.

First thing Friday Morning, I had a dentist appointment. I went there to finish my bridge on the right side. Now that it has been more then 24 and all the numbing meds have wore off, I can tell that the bridge is to high. My bite is off and it feels weird. This sucks! One more dentist appointment before I leave California!

I spent some time with my little Boo Imani. I hadn't seen her in a few weeks. She's my baby until I finally have some babies. Here's our picture!

I'm now on my way to the beach to spend time with my friend Christy. She has relocated to Los Angeles and she's down here just to have a bbq at the beach. I'm so lucky that I get to spend some time with her and her family today. I'm excited. It has been at least two years since I've seen my Christy!!

My Husband and I, are planning to go to an amusement park this week. Maybe we will make the two hour drive and go tomorrow. I'm glad that i'm able to enjoy my last few weeks/days in California. We still have not set a date as to when we will leave Cali. I'm not looking foward to leaving at all :-(


I hope that everybody enjoys their weekend!

Update on our PCS

16 May 2013

My Husband has to report to his new command on June 10, 2013. We are still not sure when we will leave San Diego yet.  He's already been on leave for 16 days. June 9th is his last day of leave.

We are excited about his new relaxed work schedule. The dept that he will work in gets off work at 2pm daily and they have weekends off. His sponsor did not mention anything about Duty Days so I'm not sure how those will work. We are very happy about weekends off. He has worked a very demanding schedule these last two years.

Has anybody been stationed in Kings Bay, GA or Jacksonville, FL. Jacksonville is about 45 minutes away from Kings Bay and I'm sure that's where I will be at all the time. I'm not a fan of small cities and Jacksonville is more city life! lol

Happy Mothers Day

12 May 2013

Happy Mothers Day to All the mothers, soon to be mothers and anybody that acts as a mother to someone! Where would we all be without you ladies? We probably wouldn't be here at all.

I had a very relaxed Mother's Day. I went to Mission Beach with my family. There was a huge crowd of people out there and of course no where to park at all. It was a nice day in Sunny San Diego. I'm assuming everybody and their MOTHERS wanted to be outside and enjoy the weather. It was 80 Degrees! I'm glad we went because we enjoyed ourselves.

I know that we do not all live in Southern California and we all have different values. Please share how the weather was and what you did for Mothers Day!

The Flower Fields

11 May 2013

Today we went to The Flower Fields in Carlsbad. It was such a beautiful sight. I like the color coordination and the different designs. They did it all just from growing flowers. One area had the flowers as an American Flag.

They also had a maze within the flowers. Of course we got lost in the maze and couldn't find out way out. lol. We eventually decided to back track and go out of the entrance. Yes, we had to find a way out. haha.

If you are in the San Diego area you should go visit the Flower Fields because they are closing on Sunday and will reopen next year in March. they are only open 10 weeks per year.

I took a ton of pics! Click HERE to go to The Flower Fields website.
