2.5 Weeks to Go!

It’s been awhile since my last update, but school has kept me busy.

I’ve reached the point of the semester where I just want to fast forward to graduation. I wake up and for the first ten minutes or so it’s a struggle to get out of bed. Not just because the bed is warm and snuggly, but because I just want to be done with school and in Japan! Then I get up and go to class and the feeling passes.

Even though I’ve been kept busy with classes, the Bagpiper and I managed to have some fun last weekend. He had a three day weekend, so Friday we packed up his car and headed out to Possum Kingdom Lake for a camping weekend. We had lots of fun, and I took lots of pictures with my new Nikon D3000.

We actually ended up leaving earlier than we planned on Sunday, but that was because of the cold front that came in — in the rush to leave Friday evening, we didn’t pack any extra blankets, sweaters or long pants. Still, we had fun and it was relaxing. I read through three books, for a total of 1,100 pages!

 

brrr. cold morning!

And yesterday, after weeks of waiting, the official orders came in — 36 months in Okinawa.

The Bagpiper has until the end of April to fly out — he’s aiming to leave somewhere in the next two and a half weeks! So now things are going to get REALLY busy. Wednesday we’re making an appointment for Sushi to see the military vet, Friday we’re doing immunizations and sometime next week (I think) some people are going to invade our apartment and pack up all our stuff.

So that’s nice — I don’t have to pack! They do it for us! Woohoo!

Of course, I’m going to be watching like a hawk when they pack up my yarn and books.

This weekend we’re going to buy luggage and pack our  necessities in them. I’ll be living out of a suitcase until it’s time for me to fly out and join my husband in Japan. I’m so excited! Graduation can’t come soon enough!
