So this is day 3 of being unemployed and don't worry, I'm quickly getting myself into a routine, wake up and have a cup of coffee (can you believe I'm actually drinking the stuff now!), do some internet browsing while watching the national news, shower for the day, and then I clean house, read, write, grocery shop at some point during the week, and maybe some more internet browsing.
I am quite happy about my reading and writing being back on my schedule, but seriously, I waste SO much time on the internet! I'm addicted what can I say. It was really nice when everybody was visiting because I actually stayed away from my computer. Come to think of it, I think I need to make a rule for myself. Lets see... um.... ok so maybe I need your help, how do you get rid of your obsessive bad habits people! I know if I turned my computer off it would make it much less appealing but then I can't do my writing. I don't know, maybe somebody will have a better idea.
Today I went to the Commissary (the grocery store on base) I had to go yesterday but it was the first day open after payday so that was a definite no no. So I thought today would be a little better, boy was I wrong! I had no idea the case lot sale was going on. There were SO many people there, many with at least two carts full of groceries! What normally takes me 45 minutes, took me 1.5 hours because the checkout line wrapped around the entire store!! Then I went back into town with my friend Alyssa, the two of us went to lunch and gossiped about the boys :) So while I didn't clean the kitchen I did get the groceries... good thing I have tomorrow.
Alright, I need to stop wasting time and get to my writing, I will not get on the internet again until Jordan gets home (wink, wink). Don't forget to give me suggestions!!!
So yes there has been lots going on lately and sure I could fill you in on all that, but I'm just too excited.... I chopped off my long hair! It was down to the middle of my back but I have wanted to cut it for months. I told my mom I wouldn't until after she visited. Well two weeks later, here it is.
We've had a very busy summer, time has flown by way too fast. The first week of September was when all our guests from Oregon came to visit and I went to my first Nascar race. It was so hot but definitely a neat experience. I recently quit my job as a nanny and I'm waiting to get a job on base. It will be a much better position for me in the long run, so keep your fingers crossed! So in the meantime I'm spending my time at home with Maverick and plan on doing lots of reading and writing :)
Here are some pictures from our amazing summer in North Carolina!
We planted flower beds and boy was that a lot of hard work! We had to dig up all the grass which totally sucked. I told Jordan that I would not be helping him outside, EVER again! But it turned out pretty.
We of course spent a lot of time being silly and going to the bars with the gang.
This is me with the little man I was a nanny for. His name is Carson and he is going to be a big boy, he's not even 2 yet and weighs 40lbs! I miss him lots already but hopefully I will keep in touch like I have with the triplets.
My mom was here for 4 days and we had a nice time together, though I was sad when she had to leave :( But the following weekend we went to the Richmond International Speedway.
So there is the very quick catchup on our lives. I promise to try harder at updating this thing :)
