I haven't had time to get a video up, but I will eventually! Maybe once I can get some things looking somewhat organized. *laughs* And I don't even have kids!
Jesse's gone for a few weeks again, only this time he's holed up in some dorms less than 2,000 miles away from me. I'm very busy. You wouldn't think it, but I am. I run errands all day and do uniform stuff and track down paperwork. Yay!
Oh and I had a blunder with the wash machine. Apparently the dish 'detergent' they gave me at the housing office was not for Machine washers.
I'm super excited for today though! I'm going to a Messianic Synagog to see how different they are from the Church of Christ. They're beliefs and stuff seem to be the exact same from what I read about the one here in Spokane. I like learning new stuff!
Anyways that's all for now! Time to make more banana bread! Buwahahahahaha!

Sorry it's taken me so long to get online. Due to some timing issues and the pressures of being a military wife in transition I've not really cared about keeping my blog up or anything other than "OMG I have to get a hold of Jesse's superior and fix the pay AGAIN!" and boxes... and packing an explorer to the gills... and driving across the U.S.... oh and setting up a house.
The last part is kind of fun. I can't wait to get the blue christmas lights up in the bedroom and hang the ink painting and asian fans we forced in with the rest of our stuff.
I never realized how expensive it is to 'start'. Between filling the cabinets with food and the random little necessities you don't think of until you realize you don't have one (i.e. a screw driver, door mat, step stool, ect.) one spends at least a grand. This is totally not mentioning a bed and other furniture type trappings that tend to be needed in a home.
Our house looks painfully like a bachelors pad at the moment, complete with full sink and piles of clean and dirty clothes. We're missing some pretty funky things in the furniture department. For example, we have a table without chairs, a 3 door cubby that I'm not really sure what we needed it for other than to make the back of the Explorer look more like a stage on Tetris, a foot locker to go at the end of our futon mattress that's on the floor. To top off the look with have shelves that are made of undressed plywood and cinder bricks. At some point I plan on getting some black or white contact paper and a few yards of three or four different asian fabric patterns and fixing them up to look less like poor young bachelor/newly wed-ish stuff.
Yeah that's pretty much it.
