Goodbye (for a little while) Xangaland! 

I have a few short minutes to say hello… as I’m sure you all know I’m back from Texas and Ryan graduated!  I had hoped for a little time before things went nuts to catch up with all of you but alas no luck.  Here is my schedule for my remaining time in the land of Perpetual sunshine (also known as Phoenix, AZ)

JUN 26 MON: Move every single thing that I own in this world all of it into my parents garage and separate into three piles….  Unaccompanied baggage, household goods, and non temporary storage.

JUN 27 TUESFriday’s movers come to check what we have.  Finish what didn’t get done, outprocess from squadron on base, dinner with my aunt Sue and family to tell her all the last minute things she might need to know while we’re gone and teach her how to clean my enormous fish tank that she is graciously caring for in my stead.

JUN 28 WEDUnaccompanied baggage pick up… Oops now it’s germany today so… Household goods pick up… (this includes Ryan’s bike so as of here we are down to one vehicle) Ride with mom and dad…

Miss you all…
