We have orders!!

We got word earlier today that Keith has orders to move to Clearwater, Florida. This is great news for us for so many different reasons. I'm a little unsure about what happens from here, but I know it's officially time to sell the house. So Keith and I will be working hard to finish getting everything organized. We've already be working on this quite a bit for the past couple of weeks, but now that we really know we are leaving, we've set a date to put the house on the market. The Work-life department of the Coast Guard actually has a two-day workshop on how to make smart decisions when moving, so I'll be going to that in February.

Keith also got word today that he'll be transfering to the evening shift in a couple of weeks. This is also pretty good news, as it means he won't be flying as many hours as he has been, and he'll be home during the day. This also gives him weekends off and we can really knock-out our to-do list with him home on the weekends.

Congratulations, and what a change! I'm sure it'll be exciting to see so much sunshine and be so close to Disney World...at least relative to AK! :) What wonderful news!

Look forward to reading about you all in Florida, we sort of know where Florida is thanks to Disney, and no I have not been persuaded to go yet!

Thanks again for visiting My Quiet Corner so I could come find you here. What a great site you have! I love the header picture! Beautiful!!

Alaska huh?? I've been twice. Once in HS and once in college. My husband would love to get there someday. I thought it was beautiful!!

How soon will you be making this move to Florida? It sounds like (apart from all the work it will take to move) you are looking forward to it.

I have bookmarked your site here and will return! Please feel free to stop back by My Quiet Corner any time! :-) It was a pleasure having you.
