Know what's totally awesome?

Starting your period at work. and THEN learning that we have no water in the building today.

And if that's not awesome enough?

How about starting your period the day before your husband comes home and you haven't seen each other in a month?

Doubly awesome!

I'm moving this weekend! See you on the west coast!!

  • My apartment got struck by lightning and I lost internet access and my a/c blew out. Sometimes I have hot water, other times I don’t.

  • My apartment office is trying to make me pay for the WHOLE month of September, even though we’ll be out of there on August 31st. (I gave them notice on August 8th, and since it wasn’t a full 30 days before the next time rent is due, they’re charging me the whole entire month. Why can’t they charge me through the 8th, you ask? GOOD QUESTION! I want to know, too).

  • I’m moving offices at work. For 2 weeks only until I leave. After I was told I wouldn’t have to move because it’s not a good use of time with the mass amount of work I have to do.

  • I got a chip in my windshield on Saturday.

  • I broke my parent’s lawn mower.

  • I move in 2 weeks and my to-do list has about 20934802398502937523092803598 things on it.

  • Packing has barely started.

The next two weeks are going to be hell. I just want to be in Washington with my husband. Is that too much to ask for?

It's official this time

So another update on moving....of course, right?

But this time it's official. Like, as official as possible because Seth signed our housing papers yesterday! And tomorrow he gets our keys! And by the end of the month, I'll be in Washington!! And he'll be living in a completely brand new townhome with absolutely nothing in it, until I get out there. Poor guy :(

I'm freaking out/excited as hell about it. I feel like I'm going to barf. I have SOOO freaking much to do in the next 3 weeks. That's when I leave Michigan: 3 freaking weeks. Holy shit. (And I'm house sitting this week so it's really like 2 weeks to get everything accomplished. Even better). I'm not ready for the goodbyes. Sooooo not ready for the goodbyes.

I'm for real this time. Promise. (disclaimer: unless the Army changes our plans for us, it really is for real).

One week I'm moving, the next I'm not, the next I am....

Can I just say I’m super excited to get to out new post? We recently changed our on post housing preference and I’m really happy about that. I was terribly afraid that the housing we originally signed up for for was going to be run down and not pretty on the outside (this is based on pictures of the outside of the homes). Plus, they only had one bathroom (single sink), and a single car garage (we both called dibs on it and I was ready to fight for it). The one major plus I was really looking forward to was a fenced in backyard. We were in the 40’s out of about 55 on the wait list, and it would have been October before I could move out there.

Seth was with a buddy yesterday and looking at a model unit for his housing and Seth really liked it. He called me and asked if I wanted to change which housing list we were on. So he sent me a few pictures, gave me a cell phone video tour and signed us up. We’re now in the single digits of less than 15! Another bonus is that it’s a brand new building, but it’s not officially available yet, so I still probably won’t get out there until October. We should have an answer as to when he can move in late next week, and then I can frantically pack up my stuff and get there sometime in late September. More bonus’s of the new home: 2 car garage with storage (!!!!), two and a half bathrooms (!!!!), brand new everything, hardwood floors in the living area, an island in the kitchen, a washer and dryer/utility room and a master bedroom with a master bath that has double sinks (!!!!). The only downside is that it’s a townhome, so we’ll be sharing walls with neighbors (but maybe, just maybe, we’ll get an end unit!!) and we won’t have a fenced in back yard. Seth said that there are plenty of grassy areas that we will not have a problem finding a place to walk Patrick. (However, since it’s rainy, I was looking forward to letting him out and not having to be outside with him). I’m willing to sacrifice these things for a beautiful new home!!!

I'm getting more and more excited as I think about finally living with Seth. It never seemed like it would ever happen, and now it's starting to feel real. I have a long list of things to do before I move and I don't have much time to spare!

Happy weekend :)
