Hurry Up….And Wait!

Sorry it’s been a little while since my last blog post. It has been kind of slow going here. The Tanabata Festival was this past weekend but we were not able to attend due to Daniel having duty. It was exactly the same as last year though, so we did not miss out on a thing, so it’s all good.

The heat is here, making the everyday nasty as hell. Doing anything is a joke too unless you are sitting and not moving or if you find someplace to go that has AC. Last night we did just that. We had dinner out in town due to them having AC and then we went and bought me a Japanese fan to stick my face in front of,lol.

If you are in the military, the Navy you are most likely familiar with the saying “Hurry Up & Wait”. It is something that ALWAYS happens, especially when you are the military person going somewhere or awaiting some information.

I have not talked about it much, actually I do not talk about our military life much in general but months ago Daniel took the Chief’s exam, we found out a while ago he was bored selected and that my friends was an awesome feeling! Many take the test and few get bored selected, so that happening in itself brought about much joy!

Now it is the last day of July, heading into August and we are awaiting the CPO (Chief Petty Officer’s) results. It’s like 2 weeks of “Did he make it or not”! You can not help but torture yourself, checking for any information at all ungodly hours of the night, which is fine really because of the time difference, lol. We were really hoping for news last night but nothing.

So, tonight I will keep watch for any information that may come out while Daniel somehow sleeps with no issue. Well, it’s a good thing he is sleeping well as if he does get selected the next 6 weeks of his life will be insane and lacking of sleep. The excitement is almost to much!

If anyone else out there is waiting for the results, Good Luck To You!!!

    • Hi Corinne! In Japan it gets pretty nasty hot for about 4-6 weeks, maybe a few more weeks it depends. We have temps in the high 80’s-90’s and with the high humidity it is pure misery too and no AC and fans do not cut it either. Thank you for visiting :)

  2. Good luck to you both.

  3. best wishes for the board certification, i feel it’ll be good news!

    stay cool!

  4. Totally understand the “hurry up and wait” mentality. It actually wasn’t until I got out of the Coast Guard that I started understanding in the real world, not EVERYONE ELSES’ time is more important than mine haha

    I hope he made it – chief is a good pay raise and a big deal!

    You THINK you hot. Only a few weeks a year.. :p I live on the Gulf Coast.. Hot humid six months of the year, and the other siz are just hot.

    My husband is not military (now) but I do understand that test and wait thing for job stuff. I hope you get the results very very soon.

  6. Oh, I know the “hurry up and wait” feeling all too well. :) Wishing Daniel the best of luck and that he hears something really soon.
