I've been just a tad busy the past 3 weeks. I can't believe I've been back in the US that long. They announced yesterday that it's time for those of us that left Japan to start heading back. They will provide us a ticket any time in the next 365 days but 10 days from yesterday the benefits we have been receiving will cease and if we stay beyond 30 days we will be removed from our base housing and the green suiter will be moved into the barracks. I will most definitely be returning before that point, but we're not sure EXACTLY what day I will choose to depart just yet (the 10 day window ends the day before my BFF's birthday...I'm having a hard time accepting that). I don't imagine the next 10-14 days will be any less busy that the previous 3 weeks, but I promise to keep every one up to date and post more frequently once I do return. I have a ton of catching up to do, it's been a GREAT 3 weeks!
