On the move again...

No, don't get your hopes up! Unfortunately, we are not leaving Guam yet but we have received a letter today stating that our house is going to be demolished so we have to find a new place to live. All within the same time frame of having a baby...oh goody. We are hoping to get into the base housing that is over on the larger naval base...what we call "Big Navy". There seems to be a good mix of families so lots of kids for the boys to play with. Where we are currently is practically a ghost town since a lot of families left and they are not moving anyone new into the neighborhood.

We've thought about moving out in town but with the upcoming expense of the private school we are sending Logan to, it might be too much on our budget. The military will pay for our rent and $500 towards utilities but we know several families that live out in town that pay around $700 for utilities. Plus some places do not come with major appliances.

All in all, with the current situation that we are in, a move to another base housing will probably be our best bet...if we can get one of the few houses that are available. That also means going from a 4 bdrm to a 3 bdrm....and I was already complaining about the lack of storage in this 4 bdrm house.....yowza!

Hope you get the base housing. I know how expensive utilities can be on an island. Ours are pretty high. And I feel your pain about the storage space! Stick with the place that has the major appliances for sure. Who wants to have to buy those and then have to sell em later. Hoping that I can make it there in Sept. Maybe we can help take some of the load off. Miss you!
