Hawaii on My Mind

 **This is the LAST post before the Q&A sesh to celebrate my 100th post! As it is right now, I have a total of SIX questions. I know you guys can do better than this! Please email me ANY - and I mean ANY - questions you'd like the answer to !**

Not Georgia. Hawaii. I live in Georgia. I'm not a fan. I don't know why Georgia was on his mind to begin with. Bleh. Anyway, moving on. =) I had a dream about being in Hawaii last night. It was seriously weird. Not good weird either. I was terrified of drowning in a huge wave, while sitting on a porch checking facebook. Yeah. Then, I was hustling around to get on this wacko plane with people I didn't know all the while being worried about Jasper and if he'd gotten medicine for motion sickness. I told you - weird. I suppose it makes sense that I was dreaming about all that, though. I'm obsessing over all this moving stuff a little bit. Especially about getting Jasper there.

I called the vet on base today, finally. I took paperwork by and they scheduled an appointment for a rabies shot for my sweet puppy next week. I feel bad for the poor guy already. Then there's the bloodwork. *sigh* Apparently, Hawaii requires that you have a vaccination certificate thingy for each vaccination. So, I called the shelter we adopted him from and it turns out that they are only certified to give a rabies vaccination that expires after 1 year. Seriously?! No wonder the durn shot was cheap! It only expired a week and a half ago, but I don't know if this will effect the paperwork. It says they have to have been vaccinated twice...Ugh. I don't know.  It's really irritating though. Then, the vet said he's known people to drive their pets to NY to catch a flight/ship because it's cooler there. Seriously?! You have got to be kidding me! I love my dog and all...but I'm not making my SIL or her hubby drive to NY just so my puppy will be cool! He's an animal...as much as I pamper him, I'm sure he will be fine for one day on an airplane. Geez. Hopefully, I'll find out more about all this b.s. crap next week when he goes in for the shot.

I feel like we've got sooo much to do in so little time. We still need to renew our tags...Joe keeps not getting the affadivit... *sigh* He needs orders first of all so that we know what on earth we're doing. We need to go to transportation, figure out about shipping the car, figure out the housing situation...and the list continues. This is all a little much. No, I probably shouldn't have waited so long to start on Jasper's stuff. Yes, I am beating myself up blaming myself for all the rushing around. Moving twice in one year - not so fun. Never again...

On a lighter note, Joe's graduation from AIT is tomorrow! =) I'm so proud of him. He may not realize it all the time, but I am. I know it hasn't been an easy road for him, and I'm sure it will continue to be challenging. But, I'm thankful for the choice he's made in order to provide for us even if it means a bit of a sacrifice. God put him in the Army for a reason, so I just have to keep telling myself that! I hope there will be more non-Army people at graduation tomorrow! I seriously felt awkward Friday with so few civilians around. Although, I suppose I should get used to that, shouldn't I? =)

I just moved to CO from Hawaii (stationed there for 4 years) and I hated it...every minute of it. But, I hope you enjoy every other minute of it. Yes, traveling w/ your pets is by far the hardest part about PCSing there, but it's worth it. Make sure you cover all aspects of "quarantine" for your pup b/c it can get up to $1300 if you don't do it on the mainland. Look forward to reading about your move and new life in Hawaii.
