It's Been a Week

Shall I update again?  Things haven't gotten very far from last week, mainly because we spent the weekend visiting my family for a bittersweet weekend.
My replacement at work falling through means I have discharge reports out the wa-zoo which all have to be done ASAP so my supervisor can look over them before I go over them with the families next week.  This is my last week working with the kiddos, I have 2 days left.  Tomorrow is my last day with one of them, and that is such a sad thing.
Since my medical screening took more time than we anticipated it looks as though the entire move is being pushed back about a week.  Not really a big deal at all, though.  What IS a big deal is that my husband is telling me they may not book our flight out to Hawaii until after he has separated from his current command, which means we can't adequately plan for things like possibly going on a cruise from the west coast, or making sure we can get the cats on the flight with us (pet spaces are limited, and it's first come first served.  This is a BIG DEAL.) It also effects our ability to find lodging once we get there, and I already checked and the Navy Lodge is booked for the theoretical dates we would need to stay, meaning we may have a hard time finding somewhere else to stay with our cats.
On the plus side we have gone through the majority of the stuff we never unpacked from the last move and have tossed quite a bit of stuff.  Wish we had tossed more, but at this point, I don't so much care.  At this point I want the plans made and the hard part behind us!  I just want to have the move started and it feels like it will never get here... even though I only have 2 days left with my kiddos at work.
Now, to try and get some sleep so I can wake up early and get a report out of the way first thing.
