We Got A Surprise Today!!!!!
Wed, 03-26-2003 - 10:13pm
Yesterday when dh went to sign into his new shop he was told by the orderly room that the base we applied for housing at had called us. We called today & they had 2 houses for us to come & look at!!!! Our wait was supposed to be 7-9 months but ended up being only 6weeks. Of course this comes after I've already signed a 1yr lease w/ an apt complex :( I think we're going to eat the cost & break our lease to take the house. We would be so much happier in a bigger place. This apt is pretty nice but it's just too small for us. I could make do for a year if I had to but since I don't ....... I am still in shock!! I can't believe we are going to PCS 2x in 2 months, lol. We should be pro's at this by the time it's all over.

The surprises just keep coming this year.

That is great about the house. Also, have your DH get a letter from his commander, to take to the apartment complex. They should let you out of your lease without any penalties. At least that is how it works here. I know a good majority of the apartment complexes here honor a letter from the unit in situations such as yours. It wouldnt hurt to try at least.
