April is gone and May is flying by! So much has recently happened, all having to do with our move to Hawaii. Exciting times for sure. The photo above is of our stuff, all packed then sealed into crates which are now on their way by sea, to Hawaii! This happened on May 1st. The packers/movers came at 8am an they were done and gone by 2:30pm. That night was a very rough night though, I hope to never relive it,lol. We had no furniture or anything in the house but 2 blankets and 2 pillows…good times were not had. Made for a miserable...

It seems Spring is taking it’s sweet time to appear in many places…Japan included. It’s April 1st. I expect 40-50 degree weather around here by now. That picture was taken about 1.5 weeks ago. What’s funny is, that was 19 inches of snow, which then pretty much melted in a few days of a chilled 60 degrees out. Rain came. Rain is a spring like sign..right? Well we got a ton of rain just the other night which then turned into sleet, then hail and when it was all said and done, several inches of snow. Of course it...

So, with a very happy and excited scream…Our next move and duty station is to Hawaii! Be jealous, it’s okay. There are several people I’ve known over the years that got orders there and I have been envious! It is official now that we have our hard orders. We have about 4 months or so till we leave Japan and head to Hawaii. Everyone I know is so happy and excited for us and I am really hoping family/friends will get to come visit us there.  I am so ready to leave Japan. I have had a nice time here but my time here has...

Time seems to always be flying, it is moving faster and faster as our moving date draws nearer too! Exciting times as well as stressful. For some reason I feel like reflecting on what has gone on this month, it went by quickly. It has been a fairly calm month as far as attending events or anything really. Valentines Day came and went. I received some wonderful gifts and sadly was pretty sick and so it was. A bigger and more exciting event was the SOY Banquet. For you non-military, it is an annual awards ceremony celebrating the best...

Happy Valentines Day To You… I know Valentines Day is such a touchy day for so many people. I honestly have to say, I don’t get it. I mean, of course you are certainly entitled to feel how you do but I still don’t get it. Of course if you are with someone who is an ass and will only show love, affection and appreciation for you on this day, then maybe, just maybe I’d get it. I was surprised to find there was an anti-valentines day event around here called “Stupid Cupid”. I roll my eyes. Maybe ALL of...

Have you been watching the Winter Olympics? I don’t get NBC here in Japan, so my watching of any events is severely limited, sadly. I have to watch it on AFN. I’d rather be in the states and able to see more of it. In all honesty, I actually wanted to go to the Olympics. Well, part of me did anyways. Then you hear all the media reports of how dangerous it will be, could be and that you are just better off watching from home. FYI..these days no place on God’s great earth is safe. I am all for being careful & cautious...

Have you ever seen this movie? 1963, Doris Day. I am a lover of all things Doris Day. I do believe I own every movie she was ever in and I also own several of her music CD’s. When I think of Doris Day, I think happy, bright, sunshine. If you know anything about her life though, you would know for the most part it was total opposite. No, this post is not in fact about Doris Day or the movie at all but you should watch the movie anyways, you may just love it. Just one more tidbit of info on Doris, I think she is a beautiful person...
