The House

Since Wednesday, we've been unpacking more boxes, arranging stuff, hanging wall decor and trying to get our washer fixed. (The lever thingy broke off during the move. I filled it with our sheets and towels and turned it on yesterday. It then filled up with water only to shut off completely without starting again. I can't locate our extra set of king-size sheets so we are sleeping without right now. The people are coming out tomorrow afternoon to fix the dang thing! Meanwhile our laundry pile is reaching record heights. And record stink. Ha,ha.)

Anyway, all is well here. I found a gym and joined for a trial month. It's about an 8-minute drive. I went this morning to try out their kickboxing class. It kicked my butt, and I'm so happy about it! It was fun and made me sweat like crazy, so I'm in love. Plus they have daycare which just makes me break out into song and dance every time I think about it. AK did pretty good in there today. She was sound asleep when I came to get her.

Mike is spending today on the base doing his check-in procedures. He's looking forward to getting into one of those jets as we see them fly over everyday. They're so fast. Before we came down here, Mike had to go out to California to take a "G-test". That's not what it's really called, but it makes more sense to me, and probably you. He had to get into this big machine that spins you around at jet speeds to see how your body handles the G forces. Mike had to go up to 7Gs. That's something like feeling 10 times your body weight. Mike said it literally felt like an elephant was sitting on him. He got to bring home a video. As he goes up in Gs, his face sinks in from the force. It's weird-looking!

After Mike gets home today, we plan to shop for a big rug. The first floor is all tile, so we've got to get something for Abby Kate to play on.

This last picture is dedicated to Sommer. She jokingly gave me this T-shirt before we left Milton. I'm wearing it proudly, Sommer, just for you. Go Milton! If you knew how small Milton, FL is, you'd totally be laughing right now. Ha, ha. Sommer - I miss you so much already!!! I hope to see you soon.

Love the shirt! The house is beautiful! I like the yellow. I was thinking bright sunblast yellow. Hahhaa.

Where did Mike go here in CA?! Next time he's out here- you need to let me know.

Aw, isn't moving so much fun? Yeah right. And I have to say I am pretty partial to the yellow. My house that I grew up in was yellow (my parents had it re-painted a few years ago), but it's fun. It was the only yellow one on the block, so very easy to give directions to. Ha ha. Glad you are settling in and found a gym you like. Big plus!

Glad things are going well! I still don't feel settled, so kudos to you! The house isn't bad. It's actually very cute! AK looks like she has soooo much personality now. I know you must be having fun with her.

I don't know what you were talking about. I think your house is cute! Thanks for keeping it real with the Milton shirt. Can't forget where you came from haha. Miss you so much and hope to be right behind you. See you soon!
