Michael called me two days ago and before we exchanged any hellos how's it going he said four little words I have been waiting to hear for the past month, "we got our orders!" I was so excited I could hardly hold still. Could we be moving to Japan- hopefully not, thats so far away, could be go to Hawaii- that would be nice, also far away but a girl can't complain, could it be Virginia- that would be new and exciting, could it be California- oh please let it be California I love it here!
As these thoughts rush through my head I anxiously wait for the next words to come out of his mouth but all I hear is a muffled "yes, sergeant. Hey can you hold on a second?" Hold on a second? You must be crazy! I need to know!
After what felt like eighty years he got back on the phone and told me! We will be spending the next three years in California!
I am so excited, I have grown to love California, its close and warm and it is starting to feel more like home.
Now we are starting preparations to find a place to live and move in, finally after 5 months of being married we will live in the same place.
