This weekend Nick and I are going to catch up on on some Charleston-esque touristy stuff this weekend. I also need to start putting clothes together and vaccuum-packing what's going to be put in storage for the next 3 months. I have been hearing different stories about the moving company the Navy moves. Since I'm just a girlfriend, they're not responsible for packing my things. Some girls I've talked to have said they have packed all but the girly stuff and girl's clothes. Others have said they just went ahead and packed everything in the apartment.
Since we're cutting it close with moving- planning in a couple days for it but also planning on being back in Baltimore by the 30th, it doesn't leave time for having to go rent a UHaul. So I'm hoping to be able to seal up all my clothes in vaccuum bags with Nick's stuff on top and bottom so there are no worries. :) I stress about this stuff way too much.
In the house hunting front, Nick was put in contact with a realtor in HI who is already looking for stuff. I don't know how she will be yet. We really would not prefer to go over 300-350K MAX..apparently a lot gets you quite a little bit in Hawaii. But since we'll be there for 3 years it does make sense to at least get something we could build equity in and actually paint and decorate and all. But so far the realtor said she will look into this brand new house she has in mind that starts at 400K. Not so much.
Luckily we do have friends in Hawaii. Nick's friend Jared from the Naval Academy is gone for a month, but when he comes back if we need help looking for or at a house, I'm sure he'd be there to help.
I really hope the next place has a yard for our puppy. :)
I can't believe we only have 2 weeks left in Charleston! It seems like it's already flown by since we found out where we're moving. Now it almost seems like there isn't enough time to do stuff. And there are so many random bar tshirts I wanted to get for my future Alcoholic Patchwork Quilt but time is running out and money still hasn't gone up. If anything I will probably only have 3 shifts that last week we're here and then I'll be off for at least a week. Longer if I can't get a job in Baltimore basically immediately. Not sure what's going to happen. Ahhh stress.
Okay, off to bed. Two more days until the weekend. Also, Army Wives reunion/sleepover at one of the girl's houses on Friday night. Going to be so much fun. :)
