PCS Season 搬家季

PCS在軍中表示我們要搬家啦!

每次搬家都發誓以後不在買東西。不懂衣服這麼多件是想怎樣,更不懂鞋子多到嚇人是為什麼!不提包包了,根本在浪費錢!最恐怖的是清理時都能找到沒穿過的東西,我到底在做什麼啊!

話說回來,搬家工人到我們家時說我們家很整齊很香很乾淨,聽了心情非常好。

First day moving! PCS is military term for moving!

Every time I move I promise not to buy any more stuff. I can’t believe how much clothes and shoes I have! Not to mention purses, what a waste of money! Scariest thing is when I find stuff that I’ve never worn before, what was I thinking?

Our movers told us our place smells good and is very clean. That made me feel much better!

第二場搬家!工人來包裝我們第二批家當。

先是無法到七月軍眷迎新會分享當實習生家人的生活,然後無法參加朋友老公七月底交接儀式和退休會,現在又看著一箱箱盒子進大貨車,才意識到我們真的要搬家了。雖然搬來維吉尼亞還未滿一年,但我們認識好多知心朋友。大家非常照顧我們,讓我們生活多采多姿。

UN的醫院院長在畢業典禮上說「你們離開後會記得這裡人的好。」完全認同!是時候和軍眷團、小台灣、同事們、教會朋友們說再見,是你們讓我們的生活變豐富!世界很小,我們一定會再相遇,有空也要來找我們玩!

It’s the second packing and moving day. 

Initially, we kindly declined to speak at new comer orientation this summer. Then we found out we won’t be able to make it to change of command and retirement ceremony. Now, boxes of household goods are being loaded onto the truck. I just realized WE ARE MOVING!  Even though we have been in Virginia for not even a year, but we met so many friends who love and care for us. Because of them our life in Virginia was so colorful!
UN’s CO (commanding officer) at the hospital said during their graduation ceremony that “when you leave this place, its the people that you will remember.” I absolutely agree with this statement! It’s time to say see you later to Oakleaf, Little Taiwan, coworkers, and our church fam. You guys made a wonderful impact on our lives. It’s a small world after all, I’m sure our paths will cross again. Please come visit us wherever we end up in the world!

First and Finest | 全美最老的海軍醫院

Naval Medical Center Portsmouth is the oldest US Navy hospital, its original structure from the 19th century is preserved to this date! Our tour guide never served in the armed forces, but is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about history of this hospital. He gives free tours to give back to those who serve. A historical hospital tour is not complete without haunted stories. But why is everyone else laughing? 😱😨😰

美國海軍最老的醫院(Naval Medical Center Portsmouth),保有十九世紀剛建好的樣貌。帶我們的爺爺雖然不曾從軍,但對醫院歷史很有興趣,也想回饋美國軍人們,所以爺爺不定時會有導覽。爺爺在導覽最後以鬼故做結尾,但我也不知道哪個點大家聽完笑到不行,害我超毛!
