There are so many firsts.... And this is the first night I'm sleeping in the new place! So many people say "you're going to be alone??" and I say, "I am not alone, I have my dog." Such an amazing guard dog he his. He hears the neighbors making noise and gets all strange about it. Not to mention an 100 pound dog is enough to scare the socks off enough people. Trust me, been there done that. There was this guy who got trash once a week from the Ft. Benning dog park and would see Stryker. He wouldn't come in unless I had ahold if him. And you're supposed to have good mannered dogs at the dog park, let alone on post or in housing. My dog is well mannered. But he'll let me know if some neighbor of mine is dangling their arms over the fence and into our yard. That yard is his yard, no one else's! I find it adorable.
Anywho, we got a lot accomplished today. My father helped us hang some things on the walls, my mom drank wine and tried to help do a lot of different things. I am considering getting new dishes, but I'm not 100% on that yet. I am debating getting something like Corelle, which you can microwave, put in the dishwasher, and practically throw without a scratch. That would last our next ten moves!
Other than that I have talked to Jesse who is having an amazing time getting free stuff from supply. Don't worry, all legit, and he's hooking up all of his soldier's with it too. Speaking of stuff for Jesse, I found a stash of Power Bars and a variety of candy that Jesse bought but never really ate. Guess what you're getting in your next care package Jesse!
Other than that it's the same ol' stuff. I am going to go now so I can make my bed to sleep in. I was SO happy to find our comforter today!
PS - it'll be even nicer when I can say it's OUR first night sleeping in our new place... :)
