So, we're moving right. I know I've mentioned this. I am excited, but I'm freaking out at the same time... We are literally driving from one corner of the US, to the other with 2 kids and a dog. We really don't know much of the area except for what we've been finding on the internet. Lil Miss starts Kindergarten this year and I want her to go to a good school, but where are they? I've been looking on greatschools.com but if we don't know where we are going to live how can that help? Speaking of where to live... Where are we going to live? What areas are good, what areas are bad? Which area has the shortest commute time, etc.
In our past moves I didn't face these challenges as Lil Miss wasn't school age. We could pretty much live where we wanted since she went to daycare on base. Now she's school age and I am up to my ears with questions.
We go back to Florida and get things squared away there, then head to Seattle a couple of months later. It's strange thinking of how far we're going to be away from family when we've been close for so long, but we knew it was coming sooner or later.
I guess you could call this me emptying my mind right here. I've been thinking so much that I haven't been able to sleep. I'm also wondering where we should live in FL.... should we try to stay in TLF or find a cheap apt somewhere... If we do go the apartment route, should it be close to base or close to my MIL? See, questions, questions.
I know everything will work itself out, but for right now I'm just a little anxious, and a little bit in panic mode, especially since we don't have a lot of time to figure all this stuff out.
How many times have you moved and experienced something similar? I'd like to know some tips and tricks of the trade pretty please!
