As much as I DON'T want to move to Hawaii, I absolutely can not wait to get out of this place!!!

My husband is in the Army and he's sitting on orders to Hawaii for 3 years.  We move in just over a month.  I DO NOT want to move there.  It's just too far away from our families and I know we'll only get to see them maybe once the entire time we're there, plane tickets are just too expensive.  

But, I absolutely CAN NOT wait to get the hell out of our current station.  It was fine up until about 3 weeks ago.  Since then, it has been nothing but drama from my neighbors and I can't understand why.  We were all friends and hung out together quite often, and for some reason they just all started judging me and acting like they know everything about my life when they really don't know all that much aside from what they've seen when we hung out....which isn't much. 

So even though I don't want to leave the 2 true friends I have here, I just absolutely can't wait to get away from these neighbors and away from all the drama they've decided to create.

Honestly I had no interest in going there for vacation even.  I know it's an opportunity of a lifetime and I'm sure we'll have a blast once we get there.  It's just not seeing our families that's dragging me down about it.

I can think of much worse places to go than Hawaii.

And there's always skype.

I wouldn't want to leave my family either but man, what an opportunity! Enjoy it!!! I couldn't believe when my little sister didn't want to go to Japan. They ended up staying here in Cali but I thought it was so dumb to not want to see other places.

We already live 1200 miles from our families...That's hard enough, we only see them once a year so it's not going to be that much of a difference.

I hear you. We've been at our current station (JBLM) for 6 years. I'm ready to go!

There is a possibility of us getting Hawaii. We were okay with it, but then we found out our cat (a Savannah, which Hawaii sees as an "exotic hybrid") is illegal there. So I'm REALLY hoping we dont get orders there!
