Military Families Military Families

Is there something you want but won't buy because you're a military family?

Maybe a camper or a boat but you're afraid you'll get orders?

I always wanted a new bedroom suit but I know that it may not fit into the next house we have to live in.

I'd also love a sectional sofa. It would fit in this house but most likely won't fit in the next.

uhhh no? If we want it, and can afford it, we buy it. As for my bedroom suit, mine is HUGE. The headboard is over 7 feet tall if that gives you a reference as to its size. When we look at potential new homes I think about where everything will go. Some things have been moved around and re-purposed to fit certain houses, like my TV stand is in my bedroom b/c this house came with a built in corner cabinet for the TV downstairs. But I'm not going to let the military and moving dictate my family's wants.

 A dog. We would like a dog at some point but with moving, and traveling, and now renting it is not a good time.

I have a sectional sofa, it's fit just fine in every living room. I was a little worried when we bought it at our last house because that living room was TINY, but it fit.

I want a house eventually but I'm waiting until DH is retired from the military first.

If we want/need it and have the money, we get it.

Nope. We buy whatever we want.

I love German Schranks and I bought two huge ones while we were in Germany. A beautiful mahogany one for the living room that has 5 pieces. I can break it up into different configurations. I made sure not to buy one with a crown because that's when you run into problems with future homes not having a large enough wall to place it. The other schrank is part of a large bedroom suit I bought. It takes up an entire wall and it makes for the best wardrobe piece- it has 6 doors. The suit also comes with a separate armoire, a vanity set and a king size bed that adjusts vertically on both sides to accommodate your comfort level. All pieces are sitting in a POD right now. Lol.

I wanted a bengal cat for a long time but with moving and with them being considered an exotic I was too afraid of getting stationed somewhere they were not allowed.

6 years ago I finally got one because DH retires this year and we were done moving then.

this is what he looks like : http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=bengal+cat&id=DE2840625047FBBF7BB53B918A5C7740B7CC5321&FORM=IQFRBA#view=detail&id=3B785948C3516714586660C836A863B94D3F0E31&selectedIndex=7
