Leaving Alaska..the countdown!

Well, its finally last 10 days in Alaska. Between finding out we were going to get home only 36 hours before school started, the fact the movers are coming 9 days before we were set to fly out and worrying about dealing with Hannah during the packing we made the decision that Hannah and I will be leaving on the 1st. Charles is going to stay behind, clear housing, outprocess, deal with the movers and getting the car shipped...all the FUN stuff LOL! Im sitting here looking around my house and I realize as much as I have bitched and complained about Greely, I actually like my house! Not the place, not the weather (definately not!), very few of the people even. Its just my actual HOUSE Im going to miss :) Leave it to me, huh? Well, of course Im going to miss Holly & her whole bunch too. They are being nice enough (God bless them!) to let Charles stay with them after the movers come. Hannah, of course cried when she found out we were leaving her DADDY behind, but once I assured her it was only for 2 weeks and in the meantime her Nana would take her to Target and iHop she calmed down. We went out driving again tonight for more pictures and just to take everything in since we are so close to our time ending here. Im excited and scared all at the same time! We are leaving here with really no direction and no plan. Just hopes and prayers that everything will work itself out in the end. So here we go...the last 10 much to do and now so much less time to do it in!

Had a fun couple of and Hannah stayed the night at Holly's last night then we all had a BBQ tonight. Played Guitar Hero in between, Im finally getting better :) Stayed up all night last night so Im planning on taking a bath and going to bed, but we will see how well that goes. We are now down to 7 weeks left here at Greely and Im really starting to get excited. I cant wait to get home to my family and friends!

Going home....

I sat here today and checked the calendar to see how many days we have left before we finally pack up and leave Ft Greely for good (50 days today, btw...) and something hit me. As ready as I am to go home, move on and start the next chapter in my life a part of me is going to miss it here. Well, not HERE really, but the few people I have met here that have become a part of our lives. They are the ones that have kept me going through all the bad times and the hard times. This last year and a half has been extremely tough, on myself, my kids, my parents (THANK YOU FOR ALL THE HELP!!) and my relationship. But along the way I met a few great people and I am so greatful for that. I know that even though we are leaving, they will stay a part of our lives long after we leave here.
