Best Laid Plans
So for the past six or seven months, we have been planning on moving to CT this June for Nick to start department head school. He'd talked to his detailer and his command about transferring a little early, and it was all good to go. And we'd get in and out of CT by December, before the weather got super New England-ish. And this week we find out that he can't get into that class, we're stuck in Norfolk until August or September! UGH! I just can't believe it! I should know better than to count on MY plans with the Navy! I'd been planning on spending almost the whole month of July in Biloxi with my mom, we quit working on the house since we were "gonna sell it in a few months"...this just sucks. I'm trying to tell myself that it's a blessing in disguise, that it will be nice not to have to put the house on the market as soon as we get out of the hospital with the baby...but I'm having a hard time convincing myself. And I was all right with not going back to work after I deliver, because it would have just been for a month or two until we had to move...now I could work for five or six! But it still doesn't make sense to pay for daycare unless I work four days a week, and I don't want to work that much. Sigh. Oh well. The ONE silver lining is that we can keep going to the gym! None of the gyms in Groton have any sort of daycare for while you work out, isn't that crazy? So maybe I can get all the baby weight under control before we move to the artic tundra. Right. I haven't lost any weight from having Scott yet, and he'll be two in April.
