{Thursday, April 27, 2006} How do you keep to your schedule
What do you do to keep to your schedule? I've had so many things planned to get me and the kids out of the house and let them burn off some energy. But something is always coming up to prevent us from doing these. I guess now I need to start making some back up plans.

It seems like lately the weather is keeping us indoors. Or one of the kids isn't feeling well. How are we supposed to get out of the house and explore if we can't even get out the door?

I know things will fall into place but from now on I think I'll have a plan B, plan C and plan D, just in case.

{Tuesday, April 25, 2006} I don't know what to do with myself
Yesterday was my major house cleaning day. I accomplished everything I planned to. Today, I planned on taking the two younger kids to the library after lunch. Only now it's lunch time and the kids are sleeping. I happened to notice that it was really quiet in our house so I started walking around looking for the kids. K apparently decided to climb into her bed and get under the covers and fall asleep. A was sitting on the couch and fell asleep there. He's laying on his side as if he just fell over. These are kids who have been outright refusing to take naps for the past forever. Since they don't usually take naps I'm sitting here trying to figure out what to do with myself.

{Friday, April 21, 2006} Home Sweet Home
After nearly four weeks of livng in hotels and being on the road we are finally settled into our new home in Washington. The family seems to be adjusting well, that is, except for me. I'm so used to living in a large city and this is far from that. I have one grocery store to choose from, if I don't want to shop at the commissary. And any other type of store is not in town. I have to drive at least 20 minutes to get to a decent store like Fred Meyer. I refuse to go to walmart because it's so busy and the parking lot is insane. What's funny is Walmart is just a couple miles closer than Fred Meyer, but it takes longer to get to. And definitely longer to get out of.

Aside from that things are alright. I've gotten up the nerve to drive off base twice in the two weeks we've been here. J has been doing all the driving which makes for a cranky hubby. The first time I drove off base I got lost. I have no clue how I did it, but the kids weren't too happy about it. What made it so bad was that the entire time I was driving around lost I could see the main road, I just couldn't figure out how to get to it. Thinking back on it, I can laugh, but at the time I just felt like I wanted to curl up into a ball and cry.

The second time I ventured off base I was driving just outside the gate to return some movies that we rented. I know I'm gonna need to leave the safety of the base again sometime, but I'm hoping that it's not anytime soon.

So that's it for now, I'll start updating more now that we're online and I'm not lost in a sea of boxes anymore.
