Crazy Times!

Hey all. Sorry with the lack of blogging. John and I have been working on moving into our new place :D This is the story (I’ll try to make it short!), we live(d) on 600th st which is like 2-3 blocks from the main gate on the army post. Well, housing decided that they are going to demolish the housing buildings that we live in along with the ones around us. So, they have to move us all. Well, this isn’t going to be taking place til November most likely and we are leaving Alaska in the spring. We asked if we could move early, and they allowed us too, but we had to forfeit help from housing (to move our crap) and the $700 or so that we could use to move ourselves. Well, John has a broken finger and we don’t really have babysitters so these last couple days have been rough. Housing only gives you 5 days to move out and the old place has to be very clean. Anything that’s wrong with the place, we get charged for! Well, today is our last day to finish as they are inspecting at 4PM. It’s 11:20AM now and I’ve got everything done but cleaning out the fridge (which will probably take 1/2 hour) and then sweeping/mopping the entry. Then we’re done! It’s been very stressful but I’m so glad we are almost done. Then comes the long and rough task of UNpacking at the new place…. which is only about 1 mile from the old one…. Oh, and we get our new puppy in a couple days! :D I’ll post pics when we get her!

    Five days to move out is really not a lot. :( I’m sorry you had to go through that. I hope John gets better soon as well. Fingers crossed everything goes to plan. Take your time unpacking hehe. :)

    Can’t wait to see your pup. :D

    WAY TO GO with moving chica! Wow, you are learning so much…and you are such a good mom. No, SUCH a good mom. So don’t feel bad! I was talking with a mom the other day and she was like, “Don’t let ANYONE tell you that having kids is easy…it’s the hardest thing.” Not that it’s not rewarding too! I love you! Thanks for telling me to read this, I have been out of the loop! Can’t wait to stay up on stuff!

      Thanks Katie! I’ve actually had a blog for many years, started I think around Freshman year at NWC :) It’s been interesting to read about your experiences in India too… It’s crazy all of us are spread over the world! It’s going to be weird next year when John and I are only 8 hours from home!
