Our two child things (5 and 2) are currently in Hawaii, but we are a military family, and we live where the Army tells us. This blog is designed to keep us in touch with our family and the friends we have made along the way, to offer insight into our turbulent military lifestyle, and to share our experiences as we try out "homing school." So glad you stopped by!

Checkin' Out!

Three weeks in a tiny hotel room with two small children is TOO LONG! But the renovations on our house are finally done, and tomorrow is check out time! To celebrate the long-awaited day, I'd like to share with you some of the things that excite me about being out of a hotel and in a house again.

  • Having more than a microwave to prepare food.

  • Seperate bedrooms. That way, when Daddy wakes up at 5 a.m. to go to work, he doesn't also wake up a certain 3-year-old, who jumps on her bed and starts squealing about wanting Dora yogurt for breakfast. That, in turn, wakes up her little brother, who also starts squealing, but not in a good way. Gee, I'm sounding grumpy, aren't I? It's the sleep deprivation.

  • Organzing and decorating the new place. That's always fun.

  • Having two vehicles. The motorcycle will arrive in the delivery of our household goods.

  • Again posessing oodles and boodles and absurdly excessive amounts of playthings. I feel like a bad mother for allowing too much TV lately.
  • Putting together a nursery for Child Thing 2. Almost two months old, and he's never had his own room! :)

  • Being able to choose my own brand of toilet paper.
