Sigh

I know, it's been a while. This is the first time in a couple weeks that I have had a computer, internet, and time...all at the same time. I can finally begin to relax now. Everything is coming together. FINALLY! I finished everything up with work and school and am now moved. Almost. But more about that later. My last day at work was Thursday. It was very hard saying goodbye to my kids at school. They all cried, which made me cry. We had a pizza and cupcake party before I left. And my principal was so kind and provided the pizza for us. She did not, however, provide someone to keep my crazy kids under control. It's funny how just a bit of sugar makes them go nuts. It was also hard to say goodbye to my family there at the school. I have been teaching at that school since I graduated college 3 years ago. I also student taught there. So, I was very close to many of the teachers and administration. I hope that wherever I end up with be just as wonderful.

After all my goodbyes on Thursday, I got on the road and headed out to join my husband at our new base. We are in a hotel, or billeting as the Air Force likes to call it. We only have one more day here though. We found a place to live. (Shwew...I was worried my birthday presents would have to be mailed to a box on the side of the road.) We move in tomorrow. The next step, get our stuff back. So, we called this morning to schedule delivery. First we called our new base. We were told that our stuff was not here yet (even though they took it 2 weeks ago and we only moved 150 miles). They said it was back in the metroplex at holding. So, we called that base. They said it wasn't there either. *PANIC* Where is my stuff? So, we called some other lady that had helped us before and she said she would take care of it. About 30 minutes later she called back and said she found it and they would deliver it tomorow! Thank goodness! So, tomorrow we will finally be able to get our life back in order and be able to start to feel like a married couple. I can't wait!

For the record I had NO problem mailing your birthday present to a box on the side of the road. =) But I'm glad they'll be able to go to a real home with a real address!

Meg, What color did you get your Kitchen Aid mixer? Remember we were discussing colors at dinner in Dallas? So glad you have a place to live! You can relax now! The boxes won't be going anywhere!
