It’s April …
It’s A-P-R-I-L !
Seriously where has the time gone? I still can’t believe it’s already April. The one thing I constantly do is find different ways to countdown during deployment.
Maybe that’s not right, but I have two apps on my phone that I’ve been using for this deployment.
Surprisingly I haven’t gotten into the habit of checking it every day, maybe like once a week.
How bout the seasons? He left in the Fall and it’s already Spring. Yes I’m weird, but it helps pass the time when I’m sitting idly thinking about all of this stuff.
Sorry, everything above is a little irrelevant, but since I’m still in my blog jumble, I decided to do another deployment-esque post. A sort of update post.
I can’t even begin to tell you the amount of flying I’ve been doing this deployment, it blows my mind, so I’m just going to type it out for you.
- OAHU TO WASHINGTON STATE
- WASHINGTON STATE TO BIG ISLAND
- BIG ISLAND TO OAHU
- OAHU TO BIG ISLAND
- BIG ISLAND TO MAUI
- MAUI TO BIG ISLAND
And this was just over a span of a few months. Maui was a spur of the moment trip, but it was definitely a solid one with amazing company.
I’m on Big Island for another two weeks and then it’s back to Oahu to start getting ready for the move and A’s homecoming. Yep you heard that right, we’re nearly there and it’s extremely exciting. More about that later.
After A returns, I’ll be heading back to Washington for my good friend’s wedding. Things will get questionable after that because we’re soon to get our written orders. It’s already in the motions of being put together, which is exciting. Once June rolls around, it’ll be the start of our new adventure towards preparing for our overseas PCS. Still very surreal!
I’m still doing okay with this deployment, in comparison to our last one, things have been a lot smoother this time around. I miss my husband so much, but we’re ALMOST there. The stress level has gone down a bit, if you remember from my little outburst in my last post. Things are back to being calm and we’re moving forward with this PCS process. Next up is securing our written orders and then all the real fun begins.
Looking Forward To
- Homecoming !
- Just to have A home in general
- PCSing Overseas
- Officially rotating off from the boat; felt like this day would never come! It’s been over 3 years, it’s crazy!
- Getting “normal” hours with A for the next 3 years. No work-ups or deployments. This is what we’ve been waiting for.
- Travel adventures
- Life adventures
Well that’s my little update for ya. I’m definitely enjoying my time on Big Island and I never like leaving because I already know it’ll be quite a few years before I come back to visit.
What have you guys been up to? Going through a deployment, how has it been?
