If You Can't Beat Them...

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend :)

Trey found out Friday afternoon that BOLC II would not be starting Nov. 1st, it will be starting Monday. Yup. This Monday. He had to report at 10:30 this morning. So here starts 7 more weeks of training. He can come home on Fridays at whoknowswhat time and has to be back Sunday mornings (I believe.. I'm hoping for afternoons though). I'm giving myself today to sit around and be a lazy, sad bum but that's all! I really am actually glad he's starting early. He'll be done that much sooner (is that a word?), we may get to go home earlier for Christmas, and it's giving me the opportunity to get out there on my own and figure things out. When that turned into a positive thing for me? I'm not sure...

The only thing I accomplished today was getting my kitchen in order. I did the best I could. Really. It's very small. I didn't realize how small it was until I tried to put all my stuff in it. The movers came at 7:30 Saturday morning. I was pretty sure my neighbors were going to murder us. Good news - NOTHING was messed up. So far. I still have one room to unpack. More good news - my vodka DID in fact make it to me!! Man I was pretty sure mover man #2 drank it before he left my driveway in Columbia. Trey and I were both surprised when I opened the box and saw it staring up at me. Bad news - Mover Man #1 blew up my bathroom AGAIN. Can you believe that? I mean if you gotta go, you gotta go, but really??? This man is pretty regular! At least there were no tools necessary after he left this time!

So where was I.. if you can't beat them, join em right? Ehhh.. I broke down and finally signed up for Twitter. I've been fighting it for so long. Another website to be addicted to is the LAST thing I need. But seriously? A website fully dedicated to Facebook like status updates.. I couldn't resist one minute longer. I have no friends though! I'm not sure how to find them either. So come over and follow me ~ janorton07

Way to stay positive! I found that I felt the best and was happiest when I looked at the positive side of things. And I'm glad the move went smoothly. Ours was pretty smooth too, but I've heard some horror stories.

You are in Oklahoma. Sooner is definitely a word ;)

I tried twitter but I guess since I *only* update my facebook status once a day, I'm not exactly twitter-ready. Plus, it was totally going to blow my texts for the month in, like, 3 days. :p

Sorry about the surprise training, but at least you get (partial) weekends. And yeah, hopefully this will help you find your own groove here.

I think staying positive is the key...it sounds like you are doing pretty well in that department :) Hope unpacking continues to go well!

Yay for the movers doing their job by safely getting your stuff from point A to B! And double YAY for your vodka making it there! I'm surprised they weren't 1/2 full or empty! hehe.

So after you unpack a little more - enjoy a cocktail!

Bummer on the last minute decision on training. Take this opportunity to wander around your new "home". First things I do in a new city, #1 find a great coffee shop (to blog at, of course!), #2 Find the Target (if no Target is available, then Wal-mart). #3 Find a park - to walk, bike, walk the dog, have a picnic, read, w/e - just some place outside that is pretty to look at. :) Have a great week!

Way to stay positive!

So glad to hear that you got your vodka back. :) I don't twitter. I have enough online addictions.

Have a great day!

I'm not surprised at all that your vodka made it there safe and sound! We moved this past summer and the movers transported our wine collection for us. There was no problem at all! I know people talk about theft, but I've seriously never had a problem. Once the boxes are packed and sealed, it doesn't seem like theft is a major problem, it's a higher potential when they would do the actual packing.

Yay! for not having your vodka stolen. Haha. ;)

Glad to hear things are going well, and a big huzzah! for Twitter. :) It gets the best of us...
