Yes, I've been a bad, bad blogger. Here's the last few months in a nutshell:
-Soldier-Boy returns home.
-Five days later I end up in the hospital for emergency surgery on my perferated appendix.
-Three days after the surgery they take our household goods away.
-Several weeks of shipping things, cleaning, sorting, selling a car, living in an empty house, developing infections from the surgery and generally going bonkers follow.
-Eventually we end up in Munich for a few days of a mini vacation before flying to visit Nana and Grampy.
-Several weeks visiting Nana and Grampy follow during which we:
-Get new cell phones. Yeah, iPhone!
-Test drive several cars and decide on one to buy.
- Get croup and an ear infection (LSP).
-Run a 5K with Aunt L and Uncle M.
-Actually go out to dinner alone.
-Do some actual relaxing.
-Next we fly to LAX and stay in a hotel that night.
-The next day we:
-Take a taxi to a car dealer.
-Buy a car.
-Eat lunch and
-Drive to the new duty station and check into the hotel there.
-At this point LSP says, "But we stay in lots and lots and lots of hotels!"
Let me pause here to mention that we had been told we would be in the hotel anywhere from one to three MONTHS waiting on a house. Literally 15 minutes before we walk out of Nana and Grampy's house to get the plane to Cali we get and email telling us there is a house available. So Months has turned into just over a week and today we signed for our new house. Comedy hi jinks to follow as we attempt to spend the weekend painting before the household goods arrive Monday.
