I suppose it comes from living in the same little town for the first 16 years of my life, and having a bit of wanderlust as a result. I especially think I'm a little batty because I'm 37w3d pregnant with DS #5, and shouldn't even be devoting an ounce of brain power to the idea of PCS-ing .
I've never lived any place more than four years in my entire life (I was a child of hippies, then a humanitarian bohemian sort, finally military) and my average is 1.75 years in one town. I do get itchy feet! But I want my kids to have more stability so we're hoping to move around Germany for a while now so we can get them in the schools and such.

Depends on where we are. I didn't want to leave our last assignment AT ALL, and we had asked for an extension right when we found out that Huz got into the school program he's doing now. Bleh. It was the right thing to do for his career, but hard for both of us to leave.

Our next move will be this year--June?--and we won't have orders until mid-February. Is it just the Coast Guard that does it this way? It drives me crazy to be thinking all winter about where we'll be. It's hard not knowing, because I'd like to plan. Plus this time we'll have to rent our house here, which will be a whole new experience.

Soul-O, how's the pregnancy going? It's November already, can you believe it?
