Leavin' on a jet plane....

Our time here in Korea is coming to an end. We are due to leave sometime in July. It has caused a little ummmmm shall I say stress because we still didn't know where we were going. The Air Force, at times, has a wicked sense of humor and we knew that we could be sent anywhere. The hubby put in for a couple of bases..one a couple of hours from the rents' and one in Oklahoma City. Then we waited...and waited. While I was at my moms he said to me that he should've put in for Ohio but that it was to late now. Imagine our surprise when he gets a call from his boss telling him he got a killer! job in Ohio! Yep folks, we are headed to Ohio. Only 5 (at the most) hours from my mom and dad. The base is beautiful. There is a fabric store to die for close by. There are malls. The sun shines there and birds sing all while Telletubbies dance and frolic nearby. To say the Capt is excited about the job would be an understatement of huge proportions. He didn't sleep a wink last night and we still have a couple of months to go. Ohio! Killer job! Fabric!! Now the hard part. Going through all of our stuff to get ready for packers that will be here in a month or so....figuring out which stuff should go first. See when you are overseas your stuff goes in waves. First the stuff you will need right away. Like towels, dishes, bedding. Then the packers come and put the rest of your stuff in big crates. And we have to ship the van so it will be waiting for us when we land in the good ole' US of A. All in all it takes two months from the time our things leave here til it all gets to the States. I am also "girding my loins" for the plane trip back. I am taking the girls and the pets with me and heading to my mom and dads. Stress thy name is Getting Two Pets Boarded On A Plane And Then Going Through Customs.

So we are headed to Ohio. Be kind to us Ohio. We are so very excited to meet you. Oh, and ladies who live there, could you please put the coffee on and bake a little sumpin sumpin?? I am very excited to be making you acquaintance soon and hope you are as well. Let's be friends, shall we. :)
Ohio!!! WHOOOOPIE!!

Congrats on getting Ohio.... :D I feel for you moving though - that is the toughest job of all.... I am glad we just moved and have 2.5 years before we move again...

Now nice to be excited about your next adventure! Your stories from Korea have been most entertaining - thank you!

YEAH for the Capt and his totally awesome job and for you and the fabric shop. But don't get too cozy with the ladies from Ohio, 'cause the Ya-Ya force would get out of whack! Ohio is kind of far from Texas.....:( :(......(that is a double sad face!) I'm very happy that you will be close to your mom and dad; you really need that now and so do they!

I was in Ohio 20+years and LOVED it. Of course there's alot of difference between northern Ohio and southern!!

Dd#3 is a Reservist out of Columbus.

Ohio will be a great place for the kids...and Millersberg and Amish country...and Cedar Point...and...*sigh*

The coffee pot is on - you are always welcome - although you may have to step over a few quilt blocks on your way in, and share some space with some fabric if you want to sit down.

I did notice that your posts at your parents house were so calm and so unlike the posts from Korea.
