No Home to Go Back To

Well, I sold the house.

JF and I had discussed it extensively before I left and finally settle on renting it out and keeping it since the market was soft and we weren't sure what we were going to to do after Kwajalein. We figured that it would be good to at least have the option to have the house to come back to if nothing else or after two years or so it would at least be sellable at a decent price so we could profit off of it and move on.

What ended up happening was one of our friends started asking me questions about it and asked me how much I wanted for it and when I told him he said "Sold!". I'm not dumb and I figured if I did sell it I could sock away what I was making in payments and we'll still have a nice reserve for whatever we decide to do next.

Now that all of that is over I'm hoping we can get JF out here soon and we can enjoy this place together. I really like it but it would be so much better if he were here to enjoy it with me. He's been working hard to get the house ready for the sale and getting himself out of it. Now that that is done, hopefully we can find a job for him and we'll be together again. I'm very much looking forward to that.

I have been following your blog for some time now. If all goes well with my job application, I should be out in August. I would love to hook up and meet. I know you have met one of my friends that already lives out there. Good luck to you and your friend in finding him a job soon.
Congratulations on selling your house!! I am planning on doing the same.

Very exciting, I look forward to meeting you.
Who is the friend of yours I have met?
Another lady that followed my blog has arrived on island and we met at the music festival.
Good luck with your process....my main advice would be to call your HR rep often!
Take care.

Brian Brady said that he had met you soon after you arrived. I know that you might still be getting used to all of the new faces and people.
I saw on the coconut wire that they are planning on starting a nutrition awareness type of activity/ challenge. Are you part of that? From your other blog, and comments thought you might be part of it.
I have emailed the HR office almost daily recently. There has been so many papers back and forth. I have started keeping my folder of everything so that if there is any questions later I can have it ready.
