So, as of now, I will be picking up CJ on Friday from the airport here in Hawaii and Saturday we fly to Arizona! Iam very excited. Not only to get there and see our new place of residency but to get out of this hotel in which we have lived in for the past three months. :) It will be nice having a place to call "home" again. Alek has either stayed in a hospital or a hotel for the entire three months of his life. But he is doing very good. Doing something new everyday. Iam going to get him one of those littler jumper thingies you put in the door way. He is so busy! He is starting to laugh out loud and its the cutest thing! I try to get him to do it over and over, I do it so much that he gets mad at me for tickiling him! So back to the story on Okinawa. Cj is there getting everything out of our names. He cleared housing, which is awesome. The japanese are very particular on their inspections when you move out. But we passed, thanks to Cj! As for me, as weird as it sounds. Iam still getting use to driving " American" style ( on the right side of the road and left side of the car). :)
Our life is so crazy, pretty much all the time. There is always something going on. We have been living out of a tiny little suit case here in Hawaii for three months, trying to plan a PCS to Tucson, Arizona in a matter of week when most people have an entire year to plan. But....it all seems to be working out. Alek is doing phenomenal, Cj will be here at the end of the week, and we will be in sunny Arizona by Sunday. We will find a place and a car and possibly plan a drive to Florida and Michigan to see the families! Since....I have YET to meet my fabulous in laws! Even though Cj and I are going on three years, married, and have a baby. haha! I guess thats what happens when you live in Japan! We will let you all know if do end up coming out to see everyone, the exact dates once we get in and get settled. Cj has to in-process into the base and squadron and there are some other things to be taken care of. We decided we will rent a place for 6-12 months and then we will buy a house since we will be there for a while. So, that is the story. Jonathan's birthday is on the 8th, and this will be the first time being away from him on his birthday. It's very hard. But he will be with me soon ( not soon enough). But he is doing very good! He is reading a level 6, and loving baseball...which seems to be his sport so far. I talk to him every day and he is looking forward to seeing Arizona. ( He is really wants to see a "real" cowboy). It will be interesting taking him away from the ocean and putting him the desert. haha! He looooooves the ocean.
So, that is what is going on with us. Next time I write in this, we will be in Arizona..hopefully in our new house! :)
