2346I'll be away for a bit....
- Jan 5, 2005Hello Group,
Well, after 15 months and 1 week, my husband is going to return home
(tomorrow) from a '12 month' overseas tour of duty with the military.
His return will also be the 'kicker' that starts us on our move to
our new Base Assignment. We were supposed to move to Japan in
October, but our orders kept getting derailed, and generally
SNAFU'd -- as only the Military can SNAFU things!
Anyway, to make a long story short -- we are going to be transferred
to Little Rock, Arkansas, USA. Our plan is to buy a home of our
own, and live off Base. So....I don't know how long we are going to
be 'homeless' per se. I do hope to be able to get -- or maintain
off and on connections to the internet until we are settled. So I
will still be checking in!
Right now, the movers are coming on the 18th, 19th and 20th of Jan,
and we have to be in Little Rock, "no later than 13 Feb 2005". We
will be traveling to Utah, and then heading for Minnesota and
Wisconsin, then straight south to Arkansas. So -- we'll see how it
goes. (We are also traveling with my 87 yo mother who as advanced
Alzheimer's, my special needs son, our dog, 2 cats, 2 fish and our
obnoxious parrot.) So - wish us luck!
In the meantime, I hope everyone will get busy sharing!
Also - I wanted to share with you an International Project -
www.Freecycle.org. Their goal is to reduce the amount of stuff in
the Landfills, and to help spread good will! They do request that
you OFFER something you may have 'extra' before you post things you
