I think that I can finally say that I am back to normal and there are no more issues with the dreaded wisdom teeth! I felt like SUCH a wuss for having such a tough time recovering from something so minor, but it really kicked my behind.
There's not a whole lot going on in the Cravinho household. Were basically really excited for our Italy move in a couple of months. Well, for me it's more like excitement mixed with worries (what else is new).
I like to plan things. It's just how I am. If I can't plan, I feel totally out of control.
Yea, my husband finds this quite hilarious.
His motto is "you can plan all you want but don't plan on it." This is the kind of attitude you need when your dealing with the military. I've been trying my best to adapt since the moment we started dating.
Anyways, this is going to be a first move for the both of us. The hubs has been stationed at Robins AFB since he got out of tech school years ago. You can bet that I'm constantly looking at the Aviano website. From check lists to packing tips, I want to plan for as much as I possibly can! We have an appointment with the passport office tomorrow to get my no-fee passport (and I imagine whatever else I might need. I don't even have a regular passport).
We also discovered that our car needs to be shipped out almost 2 months before we leave! Right now we only have one car, what are we supposed to drive around during that time?
I'm also currently obsessed with the AHRN website. I LOVE looking at all the possible places where we could live! Last night I found a little (well not so little) pink house that I love. We've heard that it's better to live a little farther away from base and more in the city (Pordenone). But, I get confused because it seems as though there are a ton of different areas within Pordenone.
I'm just ready to get over there now. The more time I have before we leave, the more I'm going to think about things and stress out. Just toss me over there without giving me a chance to think about it :) My mind is my own worst enemy.
For those of you who have done this before, any advice? What did you wish you knew while you were in the process of moving overseas?
For now I'm just going to try to keep calm and carry on.
I'm hoping the laid-back Italian culture rubs off on me a bit :)
