As I sit here underlining the text from the journal article I'm reading, I think to myself: I really love sharpies! They write so definitively, so boldly and don't hold anything back. I think we all need to live our lives more like these markers. Giving it our all until we run out of ink.
I got a retractable one for Christmas one year. Its wicked cool! It clicks in and out just like a regular pen.
Maybe its the fumes and smell, but I sure like using them.

WELL its sorta official. While the orders haven't actually been cut, the colonel (AF not KFC) called and told us we are going to be stationed in MISAWA JAPAN.
I've gone from excited, to worried and am on the way back up to excited.
Em has gone from depressed and is on the way to accepting it.
I will be reporting to COT (Commissioned officer training) on 26 August. That will be for four weeks and then its off to JAPAN.
Misawa in the Aomori Prefecture, part of Northern Honshu, which is the main island of Japan (Same island as Tokyo).
A few Misawa facts:
~400 Miles North of Japan
-rural an scenic
-4 defined seasons with a serious winter
-Tokyo is an hour away by air, about 3 and a half hours by train, and about 10-12 hours by car.
That's alls I got for yous guys (that was Rhode Islander). Come visit Us!!!!!

Monday was a major Beach Day. I started out surfing (for my fourth time) with my bro-in-law in the morning. Then a picnic with our SF friends until the high tide forced us to relocate to a beach farther north. Followed by swimming at our hotel. Max keeps wanting to do anything as long as there is "a lot of water."

Here is a little catch up blogging about our camping trip to Bar Harbor Maine. This is the view of Bar Harbor and its many islands.) (The Bush estate in Kennenbunkport)There was much concern about bears taking our young, but all children were alive and accounted for the whole time. (Well at least alive)
The trip was interspersed with various variation of lobster. First was lobsta bisque, then lobsta roll, then finished off on the day home with a whole lobsta at the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound. This one was amazingly good. Better than any of the 4 I've had in RI.

Southwest was great today on our flight. We were able to commender an extra seat for our lap child. They gave the boys extra soft oatmeal breakfast bars and me the whole can of soda. But the greatest was that both of our flights arrived 25 and 30 minutes early respectively!
Too bad that time gained was utterly destroyed and swindled waiting in line at Dollar Car Rental!! I walked in and there was a line of about 15 people. Fine. Twenty minutes later I had moved about 2 feet, and I think that was just people standing on a different foot, thus altering the lines position. As I finally approached the front of the line they decide to let us in on the secret: they don't have any cars!!! So they start busing people over to Budget. Well I stayed in line instead of going with the crowd and was able to get a "free upgrade" to the gas guzzling SUV which happened to be one of the last cars on the lot.
We eventually left Dollar and made our way to Em's sister for a pool party which was awesome!!! Now for some reason I'm still awake.
