I'm 39, turning 40 this year. Have 4 children age 18 to 5. Hopefully no grandbabies in the near future.

Don't really want to have to swap forums in less than 6 months so asking you all - can I just start here instead of with the 30-somethings?

Out of curiosity what are you doing in Japan?

Glad you're joining the 40 somethings! The chat thread is usually very active, so you'll have to pop over there some time!

My husband is retired Army, he's now a USAF contractor. We've been in north Japan 4.5 years for him to work at a military base here and are hoping to head back to the US soon.

My brother is USAF. He and his wife will be in Okinawa (Kadina, I think) in August for 3 years. They are very excited. If I hit the Lotto, I'll visit him. :)

OOHHH! I asked because I have a friend who lives in Japan but they aren't military so I was just wondering if you were doing the same thing. I lived in Taiwan for a year and a half as a missionary for my church and my husband was a missionary in northern Japan. I love the orient. The people are incredible.

The people are incredible. The culture is wonderful here. We live in a small northern town called Misawa, where it's cool - cold most of the year and we get a lot of snow.

Cool! (No pun intended). Where are you going to land when you come home?

We are hoping Texas, but it might be anywhere in the southern states from Florida to Arizona. My husband is from Florida. I'm from Texas. I have family in Arizona. We just both know we're tired of it being cold 99% of the time. :p
