Hey ladies (and gents) ;) Sooo, my husband has been in the Navy since 1998 and we've been married for going on 7 years, but we've always lived off base and it looks like we may be headed to the living on base housing route. What can I expect? What is it like? What do I need to watch out for? I mean, it's really nice housing, everything is brand new, each of our three girls will have their own room so that's a plus and I know that I need to keep the lawn mowed and driveway scooped in the winter and can't plant flowers without putting in a request ect... but what should I expect other than that? Are people generally easy to get along with? I'm a 25 year old mom with three kiddos ages 4, 2 and 5 months. My husband is deployed to Afghanistan right now 'til June of 2011 and we are remotely stationed at the moment and are looking at moving onto base as his orders are supposed to roll over into 24 month orders at offutt afb. I have my house pretty much tentatively sold here and waiting to here back from base housing, so I'll be moving myself. Also, I'm really easy going, non judgemental and I don't like to talk about people behind their backs, and I try to get along with everyone. So experience spouses, what are your experiences, advice and input? Thanks ladies and gents and God bless y'all!
