Hey peeps! It's been so long since I've blogged. But living without internet is about to kill me. I'm having withdrawals. But thankfully the apartment complex we found has internest access in the "lobby." We have found an amazing place. It's literally right outside the gate. Amazing location for Joe. It's smaller than our last place, but it would almost have to be. And I can see the mountains!! I forget that they are there. I take Rigel outside to do his business and look up. I'm almost always surprised that they are there. I could just stare at them all day. Sounds dumb right? Sara, they are just mountains. Piles of rocks. :) But OMG! The view! I've never seen anything like them before in my life. And driving here was an amazing sight. Joe told me it would be "flat flat flat flat flat and then MOUNTAINS! And it was. But it was so much more than that! Again, I will try to post some pictures later.
We spent 4 nights in a Days Inn when we got here. We were there over Christmas. It was kinda hard for me. But Joe knows I'm nuts and made everything all better again.
I'm really excited to get out and explore this town. It's so much fun to live in a REAL town again. No offence, but Junction City is a small shanty compared to this place. I missed my college town, Fayetteville, AR, because it was a real town. I think going through a deployment here will be less depressing. There is so much to do, as long as I have the right attitude, I can keep myself busy for a year.
I will try to post pics to my facebook account as soon as we get internet (which might be a little bit since our routers are in the household goods and they aren't being delivered until January 6th!!). So we're making a go of it until our stuff gets to us. There has GOT to be a better solution than an air mattress! (Any ideas?) But other than that (and the ONE television and FOUR gaming consoles situation), we're having a great time.
I hope everyone had a great holiday!!
