Well, my life is about to get interesting!
I've posted before about DH going to Japan.
(For those that don't know me, DH is active duty for 24 yrs at this point. His ship is doing a home port change to Japan next year. Due to DD starting her jr. year of HS and SS23's autism and not being able to live on his own but also not being allowed to go, we decided that I would stay behind)
On a whim a few weeks ago, DH found an opening doing an inspector type job in San Diego (we are currently in VA). We found out this morning that it looks like he got the position! This is amazing because now SS23 would be able to move with us. DD, while she doesn't get to stay local no matter what she chooses, flights back and forth from CA to VA or MD (her dad) are HELLA cheaper and easier to work out. BS17 is graduating and basically we get him set up to move into college and the rest of us would head to CA.
So it looks like we will be moving to CA this summer! I am not looking forward to the CA part of all of this- cost of living alone makes me want to puke- but I get to stay with my husband!!
Fingers crossed DD and her BF break up towards the middle to end of the school year and she makes the move without too much angst! Of course we will give her the choice of her dad's in MD or CA with us. Buuuutttt... Her dad is from SoCal and has been putting a lot of pressure on his wife to move back there lately according to my kids. Which makes this all even more interesting... She could go back to their last base (SM is still active duty too, exH is retired AD) and it would be closer than what we are now!
