We're moving!

WE GOT ORDERS TO ARIZONA!! Woo hoo!! A little less than 13 weeks until the land of never ending summer. I'm actually really excited, despite the heat. It's a 20 hour drive home, or you can get tickets for 40 bucks back home. Much more doable than 850 per person. Plus the economy is so bad there, we can get a really nice rental for super cheap and end up pocketing the rest (sad for Arizona, but a nice little plus for us). Thanksgiving is next week! Christmas just a few weeks after that! This year has gone by so fast. Yesterday we had to say goodbye to a really good friend of ours, he's deploying and won't be back until we've already moved. I HATE goodbyes. I can't stand them. Makes me so sad, and up here I've met so many amazing people, and made such a great Alaskan family, I have many more goodbyes coming up. When I left McChord, I was only attatched to a few people, and I was kind of like, okay, see ya! But up here, my heart just wrenches thinking about leaving. Despite the cold and snow (which I pretty much hate) Alaska and her people have really dug their little fingers into my heart. I love it here and I love the people. They're the friendliest, most wonderful people. My theory is that they have to be in order to survive the extreme climate. I honestly don't think I'll find people like these again. But I am excited to go somewhere new, have new experiences. We are also planning to go to Disneyland since it's only a 5 hour drive from where we will be living. Tyler and I have both never been, and so it will be a fun experience for all of us. Anyway, just wanted to tell you all that we're alive and we have orders for our new base. I suddenly have the overwhelming urge to go clean and dejunk everything. Laters!! :D
