Dear Mrs. Marine,
My husband wants me to move to NC but I’m not sure if I’m ready because it’s going to be a last minute move and he is getting deployed in March. I’m just not sure if I should go or not and we haven’t found a place yet, plus we have two kids. I’m scared. We have a little over a month and then he will be gone and I’ll be there alone not knowing anyone.
~To Move, or Not to Move
Dear Move or Not,
It’s alright to be scared and uncertain. When we moved to our second duty station I was in your shoes. My husband deployed a week after my daughter and I arrived. It was hard but I got through it. You are stronger than you think you are.
Your husband wants you with him, go, that’s where you should be, holding down the home front while he is gone. That is the life of a Military Spouse. Tell your husband to hurry up and find you a place to live and start packing. Look at it this way; you will have a whole month together before he leaves! Once he returns you will be right there waiting for him and you can plan a great homecoming! Only unpack the necessities right away and leave the rest until after he leaves, that way you have something to keep you busy. You can do it!
