Sick, Carnival, and Orders

Fun title huh? Yeah...a lot has happened this week. We got sick. Really sick. I dont know if it was bad food or a virus. But it was bad. I've been with my hubs for about 10 years now, and never seen him like that. Luckily he got 48 hrs SIQ. Now that we are feeling better, it's *almost* funny. At one point, I ran to the bathroom yelling "get out, get out, get out! My turn!!", expecting hubs to be on the porcelain thrown. Nope...he was totally passed out in the hallway leading to our master bathroom. I just jumped over him. Sad...but funny.

Enough of that. We were so sick we couldnt bring the kids to school or activities so they needed some air. We brought them to this little county fair last night. It was free to get in for military and only $1 rides. The kids had a blast but I forgot the camera. I took some with my phone, they arent great but it's all I have :( We played that game where you get a big bucket of ping pong balls, and toss them into the jars to win a fish. Ive never seen any body win and Ive never won. But Kids wanted to play. Of crazy 2 year old wins. The guy was nice so he gave each kid a fish. Now we have pet fish...again...yay. Don't these fish know I'm a pet killer?

Oh...The orders?? My bad!!!! It's official! We are going to OKINAWA!!! Yahoo! I will be joining The Ramblings of a Marine Wife. !!

I think most of you already know...but we spent 4 years in Okinawa and love it! We can't wait to go back and share the experience with our kids. Not to big sis where she was born!!! I'm a bit nervous. Last time I moved to Okinawa, I had a TV, some clothes, and thats about it. Moving will be tough. First we have to sell the cars, lil sis' nursery, and a shit ton of other stuff. The amount of material things we have to sell/donate is pretty overwhelming at this point. Another thing I am kind of stressing is, they made a new rule that all incoming Americans live on base. No can do. I hated living on base! I embrace every duty station, believe me. But on base housing in Okinawa is not for us. Hopefully when we move, in February, on base housing will be full so we can live off. *Crossing my fingers!!!* I'm beginning to ramble so Ill stop here. Have a great weekend everyone!!!

TMO has still not come. We got here on the 28th. Our stuff was to be here by the 13th (when I did the briefing, they said it would be here the 3rd, only when we got here did I see that the paperwork said the 13th). I'm just waiting on our express shipment. I'm not too worried about our household goods.
When hubby went to get housing, they told him they will only allow you to live off base if housing is 95% full or they don't have what you need. We have 2 kids, needed a 3 bedroom, they had tons available. Hubs still wants to move into town, but I don't think it's going to happen.

Yay for you and the family!! Like Kara said I doubt you will get to live off base but I will cross my fingers for you. Either that or you get a newly remodeled home. I am sure there are lots more here then there was a few years ago. Oh and you will get to shop at the new HUGE BX. It's the largest in the pacific though it's still hard to find things and they are always running out of the items you want. Oh well...we are living on an island so we take the bad with the awesome!! ;)
