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!

North Carolina Museum of Art | 北卡美術館

搬家前最後一個輕旅行!繼上次去Glenstone愛上Thomas Phifer的建築後,一直想看更多他的作品,而北卡美術館是離家最近的點。(Glenstone真的徹底把我洗腦)

Last staycation before we leave Virginia! Ever since my visit to Glenstone, I fell in love with Thomas Phifer’s architecture and wanted to see more of his projects. The closest place is North Carolina. 

和UN看展就是好玩,雖然每次說對當代藝術沒興趣,但專人解說時卻能提問題打破整團安靜到不行的氣氛。

UN is fun to go to museum with. Even though he’s not interested in modern art, but he raises thought-provoking questions during the guided tour.

北卡真的好熱,原先計畫看完外面每件作品,但悶熱天氣讓我們只想坐下來吃冰。結果我們就找到鮮芋仙!

North Carolina is extremely HOT! Any outdoor activities that we had planned was scratched, and we searched for any shaved ice place instead. Thank God we found Meet Fresh here in Chapel Hill! What a surprise!
