It’s been a long while since I’ve written, not because I haven’t wanted to, I just haven’t had the time. Today I decided to make the time.
I’ve been super busy since coming home from Hawaii. I’ve held three classes and still have plenty of designing and prep work for upcoming ones next month. I’ve also been doing a lot of videos for my blog & YouTube which is a ton of fun.
Matt and I still have no idea when or where we’ll be transferring. It’s very frustrating sometimes. So much of our life is on hold until we know when and where we’re going… We’re officially off birth control and will be officially “trying” once he returns home from Hawaii. I’m really excited… I’ve had baby fever forever and that’s not an overstatement. If Matt had said let’s have a baby when we first got married I would have been all for it. We’ve planned and planned though and now we’re as ready as will ever be.
You might be wondering, where do you want to go? Well we both know we want to get stateside again. By the time we transfer it will have been 4 years since we’ve lived in “the states” and it’s been a long 4 years. At times its gone quickly but for the most part I’m eager to go. I’ve seen people come and go and usually you’re with them when they come and go…. not us.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved my time in Guam…. I’ve met wonderful people… people who I can’t imagine not having in my life forever, people I’d prefer to never speak with again, and others that were just plain fun to be around. I’ve had some fabulous experiences… learning to scuba dive!!!! Oh my gosh its amazing. Teaching a stamping class for MWR… and traveling. Oh goodness the traveling.
Since moving here I’ve visited Oahu twice, the Big Island, & China!!! China would have to be the best trip. It was so wonderful and HUGE!!!!! I wish I could have done more traveling, but maybe one day Matt and I will continue that part of our journey. He did far more traveling then I did with the boat. Singapore (twice), Thailand, Japan (twice)… the list goes on and on. Why didn’t I go with him? Well I could have met him at anyone of the ports, but I was working at the time. Which was nice having the extra money, but a bummer because I missed out on several cool places to visit.
It’ll be so nice when we have orders…. and I mean paper orders. People are told all the time, “You’re going to (some location) in (some date).” all for it to change… so I’m not going to get any hopes up until we have official paper orders in hand with said location and date.
Well I should get going…. I’ve got a lot of stuff to do today and time doesn’t slow down…
