I only have one more day, or more like 16 hours, until I get those keys in my hand! I can't say how excited I am, I hope that all the house stuff keeps me well occupied into the new year.
Today I woke up and then immediately checked on my dog. His swelling had pretty much gone away, and I figure that whatever had gotten him must have passed. I will continue to keep an eye on him and his activities, making sure the swelling doesn't come back or happen again. Then after I did that, I jumped into putting together Jesse's care package. I quickly figured out that I couldn't fit everything into one box, so I made sure to take anything "breakable" out of the box. I made sure everything was packed tightly and taped it up; I reinforced the corners, taped all the way around the box on all sides, and made sure the tape was doubled up so it couldn't open.
Then I realized that I missed my dentist appointment I had today, which made me stress out. I quickly called and rescheduled it, but turns out I can't get in until January. Not even January, but the END of January. Oh well I guess, there is nothing that I can do about it now.
I recruited my father to go out with me to mail Jesse's package and got a money order from WaMu (known now as Chase which I'm still not willing to accept) which was free. Dad and I grabbed a coffee (me a carmel brule latte and dad a peppermint mocha) and headed home.
I helped dad do some cleaning before mom got home, and did some stuff on the computer. My mom and I ended up looking at paint samples for the house. I'm still trying to figure out what color I want to do in our bedroom, something that looks good with a rich red color. Wish me luck! I want to do a pink in the laundry room, possibly a blue in the kitchen, a tan or green in the living room or dining room, a tropical blue in a bathroom upstairs, and possibly a red in the master bath. We'll see how that goes, I'm struggling a little bit because I'm not really able to look at my furniture in comparison. So I might just buy two different colors of paint, and start there. Maybe wait until we move everything in before I decide everything else.
Dad and I loaded up the CRV with stuff to move onto post. It's going to be an early morning tomorrow, since I need to go on post and give them some cash before move in. I can't WAIT to see the house and post photos.
That reminds me that I need to charge my battery to my camera! I hope that all of you had a great monday and you have a great week!
I wanted to quickly mention something that was on the news today about ILT Brian Bradshaw (a friend of Jesse's) that was on the news tonight because he died in Afghanistan, here is the link if you are interested:
