I can has mood swings?

Today while on the webcam with Lawyerguy he told me a friend in the Pentagon (I know, WEIRD) called him to say that his new orders just cleared, and next summer we are PCSing to Kadena AFB in Okinawa.
Since then I have accomplished absolutely nothing.
I am really really really excited; years ago Lawyerguy and I spent a summer in Japan on a study abroad trip and I loved the country. I think about it all the time. My kid has grown up on a steady diet of onigiri and My Neighbor Totoro (um, not that he is eating Totoro. That came out weird.) My sister took Monkey on the Finding Nemo ride at Epcot 3 or 4 times, just so I could run out to the Japan area. I was actually thinking about how much I would like to go back yesterday.

But just between you and me, I have a bit of a stomach ache. When my dad responded to my news with "Oh no!" it didn't help.

May I recommend obsessive internet research as the (partial) cure for move-related anxiety?

Okinawa sounds fabulous! You're going to love it!

Yeah, mom and dad are just gonna miss you. But I am stoked to come visit you. Maybe we can get a Space A flight over when we move back to Boise.

Japan is so awesome. You are going to have a blast. At least you guys get to be together too. :)

You are going to LOVE it! My sister lived there for a year with her kids and my parents went to visit while she was there, everyone just comes back amazed with Japan.

I have to admit I'm jealous, but I think the wee bit of woe is just because it IS so different. The Japanese people are so accommodating though, that I don't think it will take you long to feel right at home.
