Getting ready

I am already starting to get ready for my move back home in March. We are going to sell all of our furniture except for our bed frame, headboard and foot board. I am paranoid that if we don't start selling things now we wont be able to sell them before we leave so I have posted almost everything on Lejeune yard sales already lol.

Everything I've posted we honestly don't use anyways so I wouldn't mind getting rid of it. I did post all of our couches though so I'm not sure what we're going to do if we sell all of them haha.

I get extremely anxious when I am given too much time between big plans like this. I want to have everything planned out so I don't have to worry about it. BUT everyone in the military lifestyle knows that is impossible.

We have a few big problems. First we don't know my husband's exact date for deployment. We just know it's sometime between February and March. That's a huge time frame and really bad placement. Our lease is up February 24th or something like that. If he isn't gone by then we will have to figure out somewhere to live for a month-ish. NOT fun if even possible. We would just go back to our first little home together on Topsail Island since we know they rent monthly in the winter, BUT they wont take Bo now that he is 60 lbs. So that's going to be the real challenge.

Problem number 2 is how I am going to move my things back. My mom is going to be coming down here to drive back with me so in my little car it will be my mom, me, the baby, and the dog. That's every seat taken up. I don't have a ton of things going home with me. Just the tv, 2 suitcases of clothes pretty much, and everything for the baby. It's not enough to get a uhaul truck and I don't think my car can pull one of the little uhaul trailers. I have NO idea what to do.

Any ideas?

Anyways, trying to forget about the stress of it all. Hubby isn't home tonight thanks to being on duty. It was boring all day but I'm actually a little excited to have the bed to myself tonight. SHH don't tell.

Have a wonderful evening everyone.

I Love You Mr. Sykes<3
You too Little Sykes<3

  1. You can rent one of those little trailer things from Uhaul...it's not a truck but like a hitch for your car. It's enough for a few suitcases and stuff.

  2. I'd say vacuum seal all your clothes and bedding or whatever. It saves room. And anything you can ship beforehand, do it. That's what I did to get all my stuff home.
