Ok, I realize that it has been more than three weeks since the last time that I posted, but for good reason. First of all, our internet has been quite annoying. Then, we MOVED!
I realize that it was just 6 months since we moved the last time, and only 5 months since we received our household goods. During one of the days that we were getting our furniture, Allen mentioned that we could move in a few months. This was after I had painted the entire house, plus I hate moving. I quickly turned to him and said "We are NOT moving." However, we have not been happy with our house. The living room and dining room were tiny. While the bedrooms were huge, they were separated into two different floors, plus we didn't have a garage. I still didn't think we would move, though. Then, our neighbor started talking about this great housing on the other side of town. I told Allen that I would be willing to move, but ONLY to that housing. I liked our little town and already knew people here. However, the more I thought about it, the more I disliked that I was going to be putting Ashlyn's bedroom on a different floor from our own. The more she got up during the night and very early mornings, I became convinced that we were going to want to move. We were not able to stay in the same town, because of the housing that was avaliable.
Last weekend, during Allen's first long weekend after rotation, he (and a couple of his team members) moved us. My job consisted of packing, unpacking, painting, repainting, and cleaning. I started out painting our new living room, since we already had plenty of paint left over. After repainting the old house back to white (which is not near as satisfying as painting a color) I was glad that I hadn't painted any more of the new house. I will still paint the children's rooms, but that is it.
Our internet is still not working great, so I am on a friend's computer right now. So, sorry, no pictures yet. Hopefully, Allen will get our own computer figured out and I can update more often.
So, even though I am feeling a little overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done right now, we really like our new house, so it will all be worth it.
