Everything is pending. With just weeks left before the latest unexpected military move, life is a series of questions. As usual, the first question is, "When are we moving?" Everything hinges on the answer to that simple question, yet the answer is out of our control. Military moves come in stages. First, there's rumors of the move--vague emails suggesting an impending set of orders. Next, there's the unofficial confirmations that the vague rumors were factual and there truly is a move on the horizon. Then, there's the waiting. This period is marked by the time you find out you are definitely about to receive orders to the time you actually receive the orders.
