Phew…..well we’re finally all done with the move and pretty much settled in. The Coast Guard called us at the last minute and let us know that they WERE going to pay to move our stuff after all–Praise the Lord!!!!!!! We still had to pack it all up and move it into storage but just yesterday the moving company picked up our stuff in Laramie and we should be getting it around next Tuesday–Woo Hoo 🙂 So for right now we’re just hanging out in a barren condo, lol. We spent two days once we got here looking all over for a place to live and ended up–right back in our old place!!!!!!! LoL, talk about ironic!! It was really the only nice place that was available in our price range and they had actually dropped the price $75 a month since they had obviously had a hard time getting someone in it after we left. So that was awesome for us 🙂 They also re-painted the yellow walls to a sea foam green….lol. Definitely an improvement but still uber beachy!! They also installed a new dishwasher (the old one died right before we left) so that’s great too 🙂 At first I was a little disappointed but I’m just thankful we’re able to get this place back and not have to take something more expensive that wasn’t as nice.
The trip out was quite the adventure. Amber pretty much cried the whole way :S So that made things quite rough!!!!! Now I know that she was getting a molar in at the time–yowch! But at the time I just thought she was really not liking the trip so the poor baby only got medicine one night for it. 🙁 🙁 🙁 Oh well….live and learn I suppose. We all survived so that’s the important thing 🙂
It’s been nice to be able to spend time with Nate and Lara again and another nice thing about moving back is I know where everything is!! LoL. We’re not sure how long we’ll be here for…could be anywhere from a few months to a year…..but we’ll just see how it goes!
Amber got her 1 year old appointment this Monday. She’s 26 lbs and 2’7″ tall. Which puts her in the 95th percentile in both categories–she’s just a big girl!! 🙂 She did really well but had to get 5 shots–poor thing!!!! She’s starting to stand up on her own a lot more often and says “Uh-Oh” and “Woof woof” for dogs and anything that resembles a dog–way too cute!!!
Well that’s a quick update on us…now that we have Internet again (HURRAY!!!!!!!!!!) I will try to be a little more regular with my updates! 😉
