    Default We are moving to Wyoming!

    My husband got his new assignment yesterday...it's Cheyenne, Wyoming!

    We were not expecting to go there. I am feeling shocked and stressed.

    We've been in Japan for 4 years this time. (This was actually our 2nd time to live here), so going from the huge, busy, crowded urban setting of Tokyo to the middle of nowhere with rodeos, cowboys and cattle is going to be sooooo strange!

    Anyone know about that area? Has anyone ever been there or lived there? If so, I'd appreciate any details! Thanks!

    That's quite of a change. Good luck with the international move! I don't know anything about Wyoming so I can't help you there. When are you moving?

    I have no idea about that part of the country.
    Good Luck with the move .
    I would kinda feel the same way . I like living in the big city and would probably go batty if I was in a small town .

    Not everything about Wyoming has to do with rodeos and cows. I don't live in Wyoming but I'm just a state away. Cheyenne is considerably smaller than the city I live in, but from what I've heard they are a community that is rich in history and they are obviously proud of their "Western" heritage. I'm sure it'll be a big change from Japan, a BIG change. But maybe you should think of it as an adventure!

    I've overnighted in Wyoming. It's pretty country....very serene. I kind of liked it. Your shopping scene might change a lot, but no matter where you go you can order the good stuff online! At least you will be back in the US too.

    We'll be leaving around the beginning of August, maybe the end of July if we can get approved to leave early...

    I know!

    I'm probably worrying too much, as I tend to do sometimes.

    From all the pictures I've seen online, it looks really pretty there. I've lived in many different states in my life, but have spent most of my life in the southern ones. I'm afraid of the winters up north because I do not like snow or cold! LOL. I guess I'm worrying about fitting in there too, because I'm pretty liberal and from what I've read it's very conservative.

    I was excited about coming back to the states for better shopping options, but it just doesn't look like there's much around that particular area at all. So that's a bummer. Might have to go to Denver for that?

    I'm thinking I might go through a "reverse" culture shock. haha

    All I can do now is get ready, plan and try to make the most of it! I'll make it through though, I'm a strong girl! hehe

    You're right, shopping is better in Denver. Wyoming is conservative, but unless you bring up politics, it shouldn't be a problem. Be ready for the cold weather though!

    congratulations! for you're moving back to the state and smaller town usually is easier to set in i guess? People are more friendly and the lifestyle is slower than big city too. Have fun moving back ^__^

    No, we've driven past it though. I have two boys, so between them and my dh, they've never been interested at all in going to Sanrio Puroland (Hello Kitty Land)!

    And thank you linvline and VivaLaJuicy!!!

    Aw yay you finally got your assignment!!! I know you're going to miss all of your adventures in Japan, but at least you'll be a lot closer to your family! I think it will be BEAUTIFUL there, and I know you all like driving places, so I'm sure the boys will love to go on adventures in the country.

    P.S. I totally loved your blog and read the whole thing!
