Driving Me Wild
After almost a week, I am finally feeling better For some reason, I felt nauseous and weak for about 4 extra days after our entire household was sick. I think it was because when John was sick, we went to the hospital and they pumped 2 liters of fluid in him, and I was sick the next day and just dealt with it. Oh well. All better now
It is getting so close to moving time! I’m really excited, but also nervous at the same time. This is my first move from Army base to Army base and also my first drive across the country. For those that don’t know, we originally wanted to leave Alaska and drive the whole way down through Canada, to Wisconsin (where we are originally from) to spend a few weeks home with family, then drive the rest of the way to our new home in Kentucky. Well, we decided that it being March, the roads in Alaska and Canada might not be too great, so we are bypassing Canada and flying to Seattle, WA, picking up our car (which we dropped off Monday to get shipped down there) and then driving to Wisconsin, and then Kentucky. Here’s our tentative route with a few stops we want to make along the way:
A: Starting in Seattle, WA. We are picking up our car here, also planning on buying a portable DVD player for Easton and spending the night with a family friend of John’s dad.
B: Spokane, WA. John has family here, so we are staying overnight here as well.
C, D & E: Sioux Falls, SD, we aren’t really staying or going anywhere here, but I put that as a stop on the way to Le Mars, IA (D). I went to college in Orange City, IA (E) and Le Mars is where they make Blue Bunny ice cream. While in college, I fell in love and I hardly buy any other brand We are planning on stopping at the ice cream shop in Le Mars so John can taste the amazing FRESH Blue Bunny, then spending maybe an hour or two in Orange City around my old campus at Northwestern College. I miss it.
F: Reedsburg, WI this is where John and I went to school. We met in band in high school and even dated our Senior year. We went our separate ways as John joined the Army and during his second tour in Iraq, we began talking again and fell in love We plan on spending a few weeks home with family as everyone hasn't seen Easton since he was 4 months old and now when we're home he's turning 1! XD G: Fort Campbell, KY. This is going to be our new home. For at least the next 3 years. I’m just glad to be out of Alaska.
In other news, I said I would post a video of Easton in my last post, so here it is:
Also, I made some Strawberry Cupcakes that turned out amazing! I’m going to be adding the recipe to the site soon (like, now, actually)
