My husband has just been psych approved to rejoin the adf and will have his interview and medical at some stage in the next few weeks. Because he is applying for a priority job his case manager has recommended we start getting organised etc, because he could be gone as soon as 6 weeks (although given it's taken nearly a year to get to this point I have my doubts)
That said, if we aren't ready,Murphy's law will kick in and he will get his enlistment date and be gone ridiculously quick. So, with that in mind, what should we be organising or planning? My list so far includes:
Buy the 11 million things on his packing list
Transfer dog rego / microchip to my name
Clean out his shed / box up anything he won't need over the next 6 months (if he doesn't get in we are moving in 6 months anyway)
Get rid of all the crap in this house we should have thrown out years ago
Make a short home movie to play for DS (who is only 7 months old)
Is there anything else Im missing or any other tips you can share?
If he gets the job he wants we should end up in QLD (amberley raaf). We currently live inSA so it's a huge move. Once I know where he is posting I have to pick a high school for DD.
Also, what is the reality like working with kids and an adf husband? What do you do for work?
