Mixed Feelings

I've spent the weekend doing a lot of thinking (which isn't always a good thing if I do too much of it). Not that I can do anything what-so-ever about it, but I'm a tad nervous about this whole move. And I think the only reason I'm JUST a tad bit nervous is because it hasn't sunken in yet.

1. I'm pretty sure we're moving a lot sooner than I thought. I know for a fact that he is going after OCS, but now it's possible that I can go with him then. I originally thought he'd have 6 weeks of BOLC II, but I guess they're talking about doing away with that. Even if he does have BOLC II, it could be months before it starts. (we'll know his dates for sure this coming up weekend) but if he's not going to be doing that for months, yes please, I'd like to live together. And we know he's definitely staying there for BOLC III which is another 5 1/2 months so it makes sense for me to go.

2. That in turn means I could possibly have until the end of August to pack up our unneeded stuff and store it somewhere. Have a yard sale for all the crap we don't need/want. Put our house up for sale. PRAY PRAY PRAY that someone buys it. Me being me, I've already made a timeline. I plan to have the yard sale on the 18th of July. That gives me from when I get home from Ga. next Monday until then to go through all of the rooms and either pack it or get ready to sell it. I would love to officially have the house on the market by then as well. Maybe that same day. *I clearly have never done this before and have no clue what I'm doing*

3. I have never been away from my parents and brothers. I KNOW I'm in denial about this. I may need to be put on drugs for separation anxiety. The only thing keeping me from completely freaking out about leaving them, is the overwhelming excitement about living with Trey.

I also have yet to start looking for a dress for this OCS formal we have on the 4th of August.
I.don't.even.know.where.to.begin. I wonder just how formal is formal? Time to do some googling!

OCS formal is formal. Like homecoming/prom dresses. It's something really nice and all the men will wear their nice uniforms. The women will have their hair fixed nicely and make up. That I know for sure....

I can help you dress shop (online that is), I've been to a few formals myself.

As far as everything else, DO NOT stress out!! Everything will work itself out, I promise. :)

I wouldn't go puffy prom style, it'll look tacky! Classy and simple is the way to go.

You are so sweet, thanks for your comment on my blog!!

And formals--well, the best bet is a black cocktail dress. It isn't too formal, but it isn't too casual and you can't go wrong with black. Ugh I have been to too many of these things, haha! Do not get a big ball gown!!! :)

I know it's scary to face the unknowns of moving far away from the place you've come to call home, but this is going to be such an exciting chapter in your life.
Good luck with everything you have to get done between now and then, and you better post a picture of that dress when you find it!

I'm so sorry I've been such a bad bloggie buddy! I've missed your blog a lot and it looks like a lot is going down in your life right now! But the formal ball sounds fun! I think I would agree with the rest and go sleek...I've never been to one of these because Robert is enlisted but sounds fun! Good luck with the dress shopping:)

ok..I HATE that I missed this post earlier! However, are you on facebook?? You need to add me as a friend. What's your email? I can show you what I wore to formal (actually, it's on my blog too) and let me be the first to tell you..go classy! haha. You will see ALL KINDS there girl, from clubbin' dresses to old 80's prom :) haha. I had the most fun checkin' out the attire with another sweet wife I met. I wore a simple, long black one-shoulder dress and it was PERFECT if I say so myself. I was comfy (jersey material) but yet classy. It was TONS OF FUN and I wish I could go back & do it all over again! Anyways, give me your email and we'll see if we can find a better way to communicate b/c I'm horrible at this bloggy thing lately.
