Moving Tips
"Ask Mrs. Marine"

Dear Mrs. Marine,
How do you to transition through a move smoothly? I'm not sure if we are moving this fall or next summer, but I'd like to get a little head start on keeping things orderly. The last move was a mess (my first move with hubs). So if you could share your tips that would be great! Like how can you find a job ahead of time so when you get there you won't be stressed looking for a job? Is there any military spousal support to help you find a job? How do you deal with these moves?

~Moving tips?

Dear Moving Tips,
First important thing to always remember, smile at the lady you see in the mirror and keep your important papers with you! Moving can be stressful, unfortunately there is no sure fire way around that. However, there are simple things you can do to make the move go more smoothly!

To Move, or Not to Move
"Ask Mrs. Marine"

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.
