The USS New York in the Hudson River on Nov 2nd, 2009
USS New York (LPD-21), the fifth San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock, is the seventh ship of the United States Navy to be named after the state of New York. The New York has a crew of 360, and can also carry up to 700 Marines. The ship is notable for using steel that was salvaged from the World Trade Center, after it was destroyed in the September 11 attacks.
I move in six days.
How is this even possible?! It was just 100+ days. And now it’s six?!
Collin got to come home last weekend on leave to help get things ready. It was so nice having him here for ten days. Of course, it never gets any easier when he leaves. Even though I get to see him again in less than two weeks, I still hate being away from him. For even a few days. Anyways, it was so helpful having him here. We were able to get just about everything we need for our new apartment in Florida. All that we have left to get is just a few things for the kitchen and livingroom furniture. We got a brand new bedroom suite from American Signature Furniture (my mom bought the bedside tables). My mom also gave us a tv, the dining room table and chairs, and two recliners. It’s so great to have her there to help and support us. We were able to get everything here in time for it to go in the pod, which left Saturday morning. So, I am now living out of a suitcase and sleeping on an air mattress for the next week.
It’s hard to believe I only have two full days left of working at the office in Franklin. I have been there for four months now, and I love the people I have gotten to know there. It is like a family. I am so blessed that they offered me a position to work remotely from home in Florida. I know it is going to be hard, but I know that I will be able to do this and produce just as much as I do now. Being able to work from home is going to be such a huge stress relief, especially when he is deployed next year. Saying that - SUCKS.
The hardest part of leaving when I do is going to be saying bye to my horses. My mare, Mattie, will be making the move down there a month after me in January. We have already found a great barn to take her to and I am looking forward to having her down there with me. My gelding has recently been put up for sale and will be staying in Tennessee until he finds a new home. That has been a hard decision to make, but it is what’s best for him. So when I leave in six days, I will be saying goodbye to one for a month, and the other for good. Not looking forward to that, at all.
Saying goodbye sucks. Good thing I don’t have that many people to say it to.
Just people from work, the barn, and my mom (a week after I get to Florida).
This time anyways, this is just beginning. This is just the first of what will probably be many PCS moves. Many new homes and friends. New barns. New everything. I have officially started life as a military spouse.
