Final orders, busy, planning, excited and terrified at the same time!

Well it actually happened the other day.....Mr. M got orders!!  We are so excited and yet at the same time as we realized this will be our last set of orders it's a little scarey as well.  Once we leave Europe then we will have one last duty station before he takes the plunge and slams those papers down on someone's desk saying " I want to retire!"  Ohhhhhh lord I am so nervous, excited, terrified and at the same time I am so far ahead of myself it's not even funny.

Before we even get to the whole getting out, retiring stuff we have to first plan our move and get set up at the next, last, final duty station!! OMG I am terrified I tell ya!!!  Excited as heck to be going to some place we wanted to go and have been before and especially since our first born was born there and hasn't been there since she was 3 months old it's really super exciting.  However, as I have been planning and googling and trying to find anything I need it is very hard.  Why is it so hard to get the info I need online or to get someone to help me.  Facebook is my best friend right now!  I found tons of groups and people who will tell me just about anything including where not to live because it's a dump.  You can't get that from a booklet folks!!
Now we just have to get ourselves set up with where we are going to live and we should be good.  We have so much going on right now and the thought of packing everything is just not in the cards right now. I have holidays to plan, organizations to run and people and places to see way before we go anywhere.  I only hope that when the day comes to start packing that I have done it all and seen it all and nothing will stand in our way.
Oh and btw in case any of you were wondering we are headed to Ft. Riley!!  So anyone with any great info please send it my way. :)

 Man I do remember that sign!!
Our new....temporary home when we arrive!!

Big news!!! My son's first duty station will be Ft. Riley! He's in AIT right now - combat medic. I've never been there myself, so no helpful info I'm afraid. Every assignment is what you make of it though! Good luck!

I love Ft. Riley. I have never lived there. I lived about 45 minutes west of there, but I always thought it was pretty to drive through during the fall. They have done a lot of rebuilding and expanding since the first division came back.

I am envious you are heading back to Kansas. I miss it.
