Not all about military moving is as easy as unpacking, though...

The down sides of moving often aren't as easily handled as the physical move.

Our kids are getting older.  This is the first time Justin has moved in the middle of the school year.  He's handled it quite well, fortunately.  And as he continues to get older, his friendships will be harder to maintain over distance.  For now, a few phone calls and emails work for him.  Kaden is too young still to be concerned about keeping in touch with friends, but he still has to deal with adapting to a new daycare.

Also, employment for me.  Last time, I was going back to school at Kansas State University.  They welcomed me back with open arms.  This time, I don't have a clue how long it will take to find a new job.  Fortunately, we don't need me to work in order to pay our bills.  However, I'm going to go insane if I don't find something regularly productive to do with my days.

For now, I have my thesis to write, a project to finish, and one last GIS course to work on.  If all goes well, all three of these will be done by May.  I hope I'm not still unemployed by then.
