WORN OUT

Note to those who are moving: When they say that your unaccompanied baggage will be picked up any time between 0700 and 2100, they ain't lyin'. Nothing like giving you a 14 hour time window to sit in an empty house. Our guys showed up at 1800.

Second note to those who are moving: The vehicle registration office closes at noon the last business day of the month for inventory. That info would've been nice to know when we set up our car shipping appointment for the last business day of the month. They're also closed on German holidays (Monday's Communism Day, I mean May Day), so if we hadn't raced to get there at 1120, we would've been out of luck for clearing.

Third note to those who are moving: Don't get a billeting room with a kitchen when you're outprocessing. Your TLA is double! Woo-hoo. That will offset the money my husband had to shell out to CIF.

Thank goodness this week is over.

1 CIF--I was SO afraid of having to pay serious dollars to CIF...and I remember cleaning my husband's TA-50 for three days so we didn't have to...ugh!

2 When moving, I keep a list of the worst things that could happen in my head. If none of them happen - I feel like I've made the move unscathed (so to speak). Hope the move in goes smoother than the move out! If it doesn't - consider it blog fodder. *grin* You might as well get something for all the hassle - right? Hang in there - you're almost here! And we are so very happy to welcome you back to the States.
