So as we go into our last year on Okinawa, it's time for orders. We were hoping to stay overseas, but my husband was advised to take a shore duty billet back in the States for this tour, then apply for overseas again when that tour's over.
So...that's what he did. And the verdict is...
I KNOW, I KNOW, SHUT UP. HOW EXCITING.
Actually, we ARE excited about it. Not because cornfields are all that exciting, but we'll be back on the mainland, which will be a nice switch. More road trips. Day trips up to the Badlands to take pictures. Exploring some areas of the country we've only driven through. Tornado-chasing. I'll miss the hell out of Okinawa, but this will be fun too. Especially because...most importantly...it isn't Norfolk. I do believe I'd have screamed if we'd gotten orders back to Norfolk.
Now, what about the blog? Naturally, it will remain active. Pictures will obviously have a different look about them, but I'll still be blogging about our adventures and shenanigans. And writing, since I'll still be doing that full-time.
For now, though, we have 8 months left on Okinawa, and we fully intend to live it up. Expect loads of Okinawa (and mainland Japan!) pics soon, plus we'll hopefully be getting our Japan tattoos in the next couple of months.
And then...viva Nebraska.
