Okay so I am soooooo far behind it is ridiculoous! I entered the working world and now I never catch up on anything. However I have to say I LOVE my job!!!!

Since my last entry, we have bought a house and moved, gone to Disney World and I have gotten a job. Not to mention the day to day hum that keeps life flowing. However, I do miss this blog so I am going to try to return to it at least once every 2 weeks. HA! TJ remind me when you email that I missed my deadlines!

After nearly 18 years of living in governemnt quarters and hopping around with the US Army, my family and I have decided to buy a house and live like normal people. We have lived here for about 1.5 months and I walk through my house everyday thinking how much I love it. I love the way my windows catch the morning light, I love the way the cut glass door makes little prismic rainbows all over the hallways, I love watching the decor come to life as I decide what it is we want in each area of the house. So I ask myself WHY DID WE WAIT SO LONG? O! I remember why.... MONEY!

All joking and mushy stuff aside though, we are really loving this. For the first time in years we have a home big enough to walk through without bumping into someone else, we have rooms large enough to accomodate all our furniture and we have the right to paint it any color we want and not worry about how we will hide it from housing LOL! Nothing is broken nothing is old nothing is ugly (since we had it built so it is brand stinking new). I do not have light fixtures that look like flying saucers or flooring uglier than the local public schools. My kitchen is huge and my dishwasher is the bomb. Okay electric and water bills are new to me, but in the end we think it's worth it!

So the next few entries may well have to do with me gushing over my house, but allow me this as it is so new to me and I feel so incredibly blessed by it.
