By the way, would you think it was strange to watch someone carry a camera into a rest stop bathroom? But as I am typing this, my camera is always around my neck when I go in the bathroom at WDW.

I want a pair of those Crocs. Need to keep an eye out for them.

Sorry Sully is sick. Hope he gets to feeling better soon.
I wouldn't think it odd to see someone take a camera into the bathroom. But, I might think it odd to see someone taking pictures in the bathroom.

After looking at your signature I've decided I need some Sox and Pats pictures in mine.

Nope. I like to keep mystery in my life.

Moving Update

Chuck got the official orders today! And it looks like they're giving him until June 22nd to report to school in Florida. He'll detach from here in May and then he can take up to 30 days of leave. This means he can be here for all three of the boys' birthdays AND help us move to Virginia before he leaves! That way he can get all of our electronic stuff set up for us.

So, that means in just about 2 months we'll be moving!

How wonderful that Chuck can take 30 days off and be home for birthdays and moving -- that must have been a stress reliever for you!

Wow! What a blessing! That is really great news....but it's the least they could do after the run-around you got with the orders to begin with!

That's great Car! You guys will have all summer to take advantage of the beach. The "tourist" beach can be fun but gets very packed and of course you have to pay for parking. The beach at Dam Neck is great though and since it is on base doesn't get too packed.

Well, the 30 days of leave are days he has saved up. They're not giving him extra time. But, we thought he had to report by May 22nd and didn't realize he had the option of showing up later. So, that works out well for us.

That's great to know Lessa! When I use to go to the beach, I'd find a place to park on one of the side roads off of the main strip. I hated how packed it always was. We'll definitely have to check it out. Do you know if there is a commissary at the Oceanic base? I can probably find out easy enough but just thought I'd ask the expert. The place we'll probably end up living at is right next to it so that would be really convenient for me.

He must live in Northern Virginia. It's a pretty area but so busy and expensive! We live close to there now. We'll be living down around Norfolk/Virginia Beach. It's about 3 1/2 - 4 hours from D.C.

That's fantastic news Carissa! See, after all those troubles getting orders, it is all working out.

I'm going to enjoy this TR with the move involved, since that is how my TR was also. It will be interesting to hear of anothers experience. I hope it goes really well!

Me too! I also have a trip coming up next weekend (not this weekend). My best friend from Maine is coming to visit and we're taking a trip to Virginia Beach for two nights. I'll do a mini TR about it when I get back.

I said it might look odd - didn't say I wouldn't do it myself! I may have a picture from inside the bathroom at POR.

Great first installment!! I am so sorry about the migraine. Good idea to have a stack of DVD's .

It is wonderful to know that Chuck will be there for the kid's birthdays and to help with the move.
