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!

Yay! Glad things are starting to settle down for you guys. I know how completely frustrating all the construction on post can be. I was so happy to see an update from you (:

I just found your blog and I LOVE it! I'm glad you made it safely to your destination and that you are getting to settle in. My husband and I lived in Alabama for our first year of marriage :) I enjoyed it and have fond memories (mostly because it was our first year of marriage, I will admit). I miss boiled peanuts! Something I'd never heard of until I lived in Alabama. They taste a lot like black-eyed-peas :-) You should try them, if you haven't before.
