No, the title is not a lie. We have them! We are slotted to arrive in the tropical country of Japan next spring for PCS #2 to Kadena! WE ARE STOKED. Did I mention STOKED?!!??!
Kadena IS on our dream sheet. I assume that we’ll be there for 3 years since we’ll have about that much time left on his contract. (No, we don’t have our paper orders yet.. it’s wayy to soon).
I AM STOKED.
I’m also silently and not so silently praying that they do not cancel our orders. If you hope, pray, or whatever… please join me.
I think I figured out the trick in the Air Force to getting orders. We really thought we’d be here longer since Superman hasn’t deployed yet. But alas, here’s my logic:
1. Sign for 6 years.
2. Put in for overseas bases, long and extended-long only.
3. Don’t get in trouble… ever.
4. Don’t get broken… ever.
5. Update your dream sheet every single time a new equals list comes out.
6. Sign for 6 freakin’ years.
I’m living by that 6 year statement. We got orders in LESS than 2 years of being here (he’s been in for 2 years and 1.5 months). By the time we leave he’ll be a SrA and almost at 3 years.
This could potentially be the COOLEST experience in my life.
Oh, and I figured out where to start… the dog (in case you were conversing with me on twitter @molly_danger). She has a vet appointment next week for a new microchip, updated shots (i’m behind), and the beginning of this process to get her titer test so that she can FLLLLYYYY.
Anything AWESOME happen to you lately?
