My mother in law recently asked me if I would move back in with my parents if/when Drew deployed, and she seemed a little shocked when I said no. My reasoning was that my parents probably wouldn’t let me. (This is probably untrue) The reality? I can’t justify picking up my life and moving it back into my parents’ house for a mere 6-8 months, especially if I’m 3,000 miles in the other direction. Unless we’re talking about a span of years, it just doesn’t make sense logistically or financially, especially if I keep up dual employment. I would absolutely be open for a roomie or at least have slumber parties on a regular basis … but my plan for deployment? Is to 1) stay put 2) keep busy, be it with work or extra curriculars or a combination of the two.
Of course, I say this ... but I might make an exception if we were stationed in the middle of nowhere ... like Yuma.
So what would you do? Would you stay or would you go?
Sidenote … it’s snowing out. This sucks.
Supposedly, spring is 3 days away? I’m guessing I’ll be trading the snow for a lot of rain. Which is equally as crappy and miserable.
I will not miss the Northeast. At all.
