You’ll have to excuse the sporadic posting for the next couple months. Typhoon military move is going down. Most military spouses can commiserate with the stress and speed at which things happen come PCS (permanent change of station aka a military move) time. Basically, you can’t make solid plans until you get orders (official papers telling you who, what, when, where, etc.) and it usually only gives you a couple months, tops.
Another thing is that a lot of things can change AFTER your active duty sponsor gets orders. Like getting sent somewhere else a month after you’ve already shipped your stuff to the first location. That actually happened to someone in our community. We’ve had a couple things come up very quickly (I can’t really discuss in detail because of OPSEC and PERSEC), but imagine me in shock and denial about once a week. Curveballs everywhere!
What we’ve been up to (Instagram version):
Packing and sending our stuff to San Diego.
Living without a car. Thankfully Seoul has an AMAZING (safe and super clean) public transit system.
Eating delicious food.
Buying and framing art.
Crossing things off the bucket list.
Overall things have been really great. We have a house lined up and all the major plans have been made for our move to San Diego. We are so excited to be moving back to California, but sad to leave such an amazing country filled with amazing friends. We’re doing our best to keep the kids as busy as possible to avoid the dreaded boredom meltdowns. If you’ve ever lived in Seoul, Korea, I want to know what’s on your list of things to do and see.
