So my main goal for the day was to make some progress on the house. I am happy to say that we did make some progress. I do hate the fact that when you get the ball rolling and in a groove....You have to stop. I work the next two days, which make it a little more difficult to tackle the craziness in our new house. We did get the bed, my dresser, the futon, the TV stand, the Wii tower, and most of the bookshelf together. Plus mom and I unpacked two kitchen boxes (mostly breakables, nothing broke!) and measured some spaces. I realized today that I don't have great access to towel bars in the bathrooms, we're missing some hardware from some of the furniture, and I still would like to paint the bedroom. It does look as like I might be spending some nights on the futon if I decide to do that. A plus side - lots of room. That is pretty exciting! In Georgia I felt like we were cramming, and we probably will our second time around there. Until then, I'm going to enjoy our space!
Next trip we're going to try and finish the bookshelf and I'm going to arrange furniture. Maybe take a trip to the hardware store to make sure we have everything together. Between that stuff, there is a briefing I have yet to go to, I need to figure out some things with my washer situation (plug doesn't work with the outlet we have), and I need to figure out the cable/internet thing. Until I get the washer and cable/internet thing figured out I'm not living there.
I do think though, it is time for me to leave my parents house. You're probably saying "duh," and I know. Besides, dad is working and mom is working.... I should have no reason why I shouldn't be moving forward.
Please also visit this site if you can, its SUPER easy to do, and something Xerox has put together. The link is: http://www.letssaythanks.com. Seriously, it takes a matter of seconds. You pick a card, put in your name/location, and pick something to say. Xerox delivers the information in a card for our troops overseas. Boost some morale!
Oh, and if you sent me a Christmas Card this year with a picture on it, chances are it's hanging in my husband's room right now! I sent him everything I got, so he went through everything and loved them. Thank you all for the Christmas cards, letters, and photos you sent! He loves them.
Also - Hooah Mail is seeming to have some hiccups. It is NOT getting to him faster than priority or first class mail. he is getting it, but he got mine 3-4 weeks after I sent it. NOT cool. But I have to say that first class mail doesn't seem any quicker! If you send a box priority mail (flat rate is automatically priority mail) he is getting them in 7-10 days. I feel like I'm not able to keep up with him getting my care packages! I will be sending one out *hopefully* tomorrow, and then another later on in the week.
If you want to send him things, send him some healthier foods, he's not too happy with me with overloading him with cookies, chips, and candies. Oops. Crackers, power bars, and the like are good. Also keep sending him photos! He loves them.
Thanks again for reading!
