Tonight a friend (Jocelyn) and I had a meeting downtown at a hotel about the chapel's ladies retreat we are planning. She was already downtown, so I packed her daughter (Ashley, who's the same age as Melissa) and Melissa in the car and away we went. After our meeting we walked across the street to a Japanese restaurant for some yummy gyoza!!!!
It was nice spending time with Melissa, Ashley and Jocelyn- it's been awhile since I've had a relaxing evening out....with sick boys and a traveling husband....
Jocelyn and I meet within a few weeks of us moving to Guam. They arrived the same month as we did and will also move soon (but they don't know where yet). Jocelyn was also one of the ladies that went to South Korea with me. She's great fun and I will miss her when we move. This is the down-side to move....leaving friends behind.
This move will be different. Just about everyone I know here will move away. In a year or so, there will be very few people left that I know. That makes leaving easier.
Of course, moving close to family will also makes this move easier!!
