This post is one, big, huge vent. So if you if you want to skip it...I understand.
PCSing sucks. Weather it's one state away or several countries away. We are in the middle of all of our overseas screening even though we should be done with it. Let me first say, it takes about 6 months to get everything completed in time for the big move. But we only had 3 months notice and we got started on it right away. At the begining of this week, but husband notified me that our weight limit went from 12,000 pounds down to 2500 pounds. This makes me angry because it happened to us during our last PCS. We spend 3 years putting a house together only to sell everything. So we started over in Tampa and spend another 3 years putting a house together, now to sell it all again. GGRR!!
Yesterday we went to our final screening at base. I thought it would be a breeze. Silly me. They put Big Sis in the EFMP because of her asthma and speech delay. The kid was born in Okinawa. I know all about their medical care and they can definitely accommodate her asthma and there are options for speech therapy too. Being put in the program means all of our paper work goes to HQ Marine Corps in Quantico and that means it will take foreverrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I informed our advisor that we already sold my car, and only have until Jan 31st to stay in our house. We have our fly out date so planned these things accordingly. It's either going to take forever for the approval (if we even get it) or they tell us we can't go. If we don't go, we will get orders elsewhere. I am so frustrated!!! Can I just snap my fingers and be there please??
