Well, the house is packed. The movers said they had never spent four hours packing a kitchen before. I guess fourteen boxes of dishes and kitchen stuff is a bit much. Our household goods are mostly dishes, yarn, and books.

I noticed one thing today. You'd think that people who design military housing would make it conducive to moving. Since people are always moving in and out, maybe twisty staircases and right angles in the hallways are not a good idea. I watched the movers bang my stuff a million times while they were trying to maneuver out the front door and down the huge step. These houses should have ramps!

Best of luck with the move! I hope everything goes as smoothly as possible. We moved back in October - from Chicago to Boston. Not quite across the ocean - but what a job!

Just wanted to wish you all the best on your move back home. Thanks for a great blog - yours is a definite "must read"!
And Charlie brings a smile and a tear - he looks just like our Lady, who is no longer with us.
Best of luck to you!

Does this mean no more blog? If so, too bad, but I'm not sorry I met you.

Will -- I'll keep blogging from the US. Just not frequently until we get settled.

Safe travels to you both and WELCOME HOME!

Sarah - that's good to hear. I look forward to your observations about America not that you're back in the country. I blog too, occasionally: www.myspace.com/billynixon

That should read: "NOW that you're back in the country."

I remember the day we took you both to the airport when you left for Vilseck. Now almost three years later it will be so wonderful for you to arrive home safely.
We love you both.

The problem is socialism. It's not the governments job to provide housing for people. They should do it themselves. Patriotic service members support the end of this and the socialist VA system along with subsidized shopping. The money saved could be used for tax cuts to benefit all Americans. Many of us are getting tired of the whiners in the military, they've even criticized the president. Iraq is a piece of cake and completely successful despite what the liberal media says and our overpayed pampered service people shouldn't be paid extra for being there.
