Quick Update

I just wanted to post a quick update. As everyone knows, we found a place. We called and got our stuff scheduled to be dropped off. Being the small world that it is, M found a guy that he went to school with while he was in-processing. Him and his wife were gracious enough to come over and help us unload our stuff. That was a Friday night. The next morning, we headed north to get a few more things and to let the parents follow us down. They helped us put everything together and get the boxes put up. We are settled in with the exception of hanging pictures and curtains. That is happening this week and I still have a few more things to buy, but that will happen over time.

Over all, I really love our new place and our new post. It's pretty nice, even though they have a ton of construction going on all over post. M and I are starting the Dukan Diet this weekend. I'm pretty excited about it and I hope it helps me lose a few pounds.

We are all doing good. M is getting settled in with his new unit. I'm starting the process of looking for a job. Things are still up in the air regarding field exercises, NTC/JRTC and a deployment, but we will find out about everything eventually.

I'm trying to catch up on blogs and I will eventually.... it will take time though. I hope all is well with everyone and you are remembering to be blessed!

WOOO HOOOO!!! I am so excited to be able to say that we have a house and we start moving tomorrow! We have to head back up north to the parents house to pick some things up (and a couple of parents up!) and then it's time to head back south and start moving our stuff in! We love our new place and can't wait to get everything set up and have a "home." It's still an apartment, but it's bigger than the house we had when we first got married. After we get everything settled and set up, I will be looking for a job. I'm so nervous about that! I haven't had a job in over two years, but it will be nice to have a little extra money to pay on the vehicles to get them paid off.

That's been about all that's going on. We have been staying at the hotel since Sunday night and I'm so glad tonight is the last night here. This has been a great hotel though. I would recommend it to anybody coming to this area.

Have a great weekend and be blessed! We will talk soon!

Another Update

I know it has been a while since I updated. We finally made it to Alabama on Friday and looked at a house. We turned in the application on Tuesday and now we are waiting to hear back from them. We are hoping to hear back from them today since M has to sign in on Sunday. The drive down was super long, but we made it. It's so hard to travel in two vehicles with a dog and a cat. The new post is huge and has lots of construction going on. We spent about two hours Tuesday wondering around post. I will definitely get lots a few times! We didn't go in the Commissary, but the PX was huge. It's way bigger than the last post we were at and just a little bigger than Carson. New post also has an actual hospital on post which is great. Hopefully, it won't take too long to get appointments set up and such. Our stuff is still on its way from NY. I think it will get there either today or tomorrow. Hopefully we have a house/place to stay so we don't have to store it.

That's our past week in a nutshell. I hope everyone is well. Be Blessed!
