Well, my patience and a well-timed follow up email to the program director paid off. We'll be heading out on The Oregon Trail the first week of June. We are super excited to see such beautiful nature and seasons.
We'll still be far away from our families, but they'll just have to visit! My dad has been to Oregon and loved it, so that's a plus. In one week's time we'll have a lot to do before moving out there: renew my driver's license, buy a car of some sort (this might be a possibility), and move our storage items to a U-Haul. After all that, we'll drive out to Oregon with the U-haul, new car, and our two cats.
In more exciting news, I was granted early leave from Qatar so that we can settle in Oregon before my start date. We'll be leaving Qatar (forever) on June 1st, 2011. We've got just about 49 more days!
Until Next Time,
