The Countdown Continues

We have less than a month left in Okinawa. Last night it was really starting to hit me that our time here is running short.

We still have so much to do. I am still trying to organize all of our belongings and determine what things go with what shipment. Our refrigerator, washer, and dryer leave on Wednesday so I am trying to use up our food and catch up on laundry. Our express shipment leaves on Thursday so I am trying to determine what clothes and items will be going on the plane with us. Our household goods shipment (all the big stuff and anything left over) leaves on Friday so I am trying to make sure that we don’t have too much weight. I had a whole area set aside in our house to put the items going in the express shipment. I took a nap all evening; when I woke up the girls had completely destroyed that area by opening bins and dumping them all over the house. Shane folded most of our mounds of laundry last night. When I got up this morning the girls completely destroyed most of what he accomplished by throwing everything on the floor. Needless to say my house looks like a tornado went through it.

We are still waiting for a flight itinerary. I really can’t make layover plans and arrangements until I have that! Fortunately, God has blessed us with friends who are allowing us to stay at their house if we have an overnight layover in Seattle.

Things are finally starting to falling into place. We sold one car today! Hopefully we will find someone who buys the other one. We also found out that Keenan (our dog) will be able to go on our plane with us. Which will save us a lot of money.

Like I have said several times before; I am really going to miss Okinawa. I am going to miss the friends we have made, our church home, the food, the shopping (I went to the 100 Yen store for the last time yesterday), etc. I know that God has a plan and purpose for us in North Dakota. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us!

  1. I hate goodbyes. But the good thing is; it’s so much easier to keep in contact now than it was even just 10 years ago. We’ve missed you terribly here in Delaware; but it’s so great to have things like facebook and to be able to call you with no long distance. Granted I have to wait till the middle of the night; but I’ll take what I can get! ;o) Can’t wait till you get to make a trip back to Delaware. Tressa wants to meet her Auntie Ally! ;o)

    • I can’t wait to meet Tressa too! Jenn and I were talking about when she and Madyson were going to fly to ND. It would be fun if you all could come at the same time!
