I'm learning a lesson. A big one. And it's calllllled..... CONTENTMENT. Sigh. This is probably the hardest lesson I've had to learn in awhile... and I'm actually relearning it, just in a different area of life. Last time I learned it was last summer when Aaron gallivanted off to Korea and the Army just.. left … Continue reading So, here’s the deal.
And so is he... Luthor was quite lethargic for the first week we were in the house. Rightfully so, since it doesn't get below 80-85° during the day with the swamp cooler. A couple days ago, he became much more active. Our House. Friday we finally received our household goods. I was, however, very disappointed that … Continue reading I’m loving this place.
Well, friends, I do. Our household goods were supposed to arrive last Friday, but because of delays, it won't be here until tomorrow. Good thing I called because I wouldn't have known about the delay! I pushed about getting it delivered Friday.. they wanted to wait until next Wednesday. Uh, no thanks. We started off … Continue reading Who needs furniture when you have love?
And so was yesterday, and the day before that... We have had some crazy weather, though, this week. A couple nights ago we were on our way to the outlet mall (um, yes please! Old Navy, Gap, Coach, Fossil, etc) and it started pouring. People immediately slow down to about 20 MPH on the highway. … Continue reading Look, it’s sunny today!
It feels like we've been here for at least a week, but as I look at my [empty] calendar, I see it's been only five days. Today has been an unexpected lazy day since they released Aaron this morning after formation. It's also been a much-needed lazy day. In the past three weeks, we've had … Continue reading First impressions
We can't believe it's only been two days since we arrived in El Paso. So much has happened already! Aaron goes to work tomorrow for inprocessing. For those of you who don't speak "Army" (sometimes I wish I didn't!) that means that he's getting acclimated to this post and will be learning more of what … Continue reading Only two days??
Today was a very productive and busy day... needless to say, we have a decent idea of where major things are around here, excluding downtown. First, we went on a run at Ascarate Park. Parks in Illinois have a lot, like, a lot of green. Not so much here. We ran on the trail around the … Continue reading Gira de El Paso
Really. The heat isn't that bad. We've been in El Paso for about two hours... and it's not so awful. At least not humid! Oklahoma was waaayy worse. We have been up the last two mornings to work out... go us! Before we left for El Paso this morning, we also went to the botanical gardens … Continue reading Well, it’s a dry heat.
Wowzers. The weekend of the Fourth of July. I'm posting now from our hotel room in Oklahoma City. After roughly ten hours of driving, we're safe and sound for the night. Because of all the commotion in the past few days, I wasn't too keen on blogging tonight, but as Aaron reminded me, the longer I … Continue reading The Fourth of July Blur!
...we started dating. It was at the park, after a walk around the lagoon, something we did all the time. I had to ask you, "So, am I officially taken then?" and you told me yes. We said that if our relationship at any time was not headed for marriage, then we needed to break … Continue reading Eight years ago…
