And about three hours north we go!
Last year, at this time, we found out we would be moving from Maryland to San Diego. And today Paul got a call that his first choice for his GMO tour is available.
And so : next we will be living in Ventura, California.
A bit of background : Paul is a doctor for the US Navy. He went to med school in Maryland and then we came out to San Diego for his internship. He is hoping to do a residency in Radiology but will be completing a two year stint as a General Medical Officer first. The unit he will be with is part of the Seabees who are stationed at Port Hueneme near Ventura.
He also found out today that the unit he will be with preparing to deploy soon. Paul will complete a bit of stateside training as soon as his internship is over in July then will join them overseas to complete the rest of their deployment out of a Navy base in Japan. We were hoping he would deploy as soon as possible so we could be back together & enjoy the more predictable schedule that comes with a GMO station. It looks right now that he will be back around October or November.
As of now, we are planning to keep our current apartment in San Diego until he is back home. It makes the most sense seeing as we won't have any time to apartment search together or move our stuff before he leaves. Plus, I love being super close to the airport - I plan on doing a lot of traveling myself while he is gone. And of course I'll be blogging and business growing ...
Bottom line : He's excited! I'm excited! We're moving someplace new! We get to stay in California! (Have you seen the Ventura website?!) Paul will be home for next Christmas!
All is good.
