nomadic living

I started this blog solely for the purpose of keeping a record of my pregnancy with shayla. I wanted to be able to look back and remember the little stuff, the stuff you forget about. I was so excited to be pregnant and I wanted to remember every little detail. I am really glad I did it, but now I question whether I will keep up this blog. It seems with two little ones and a teenager running around I just do not have the time or inclination to sit down and write about mundane things, like what we did that week. But until I decide for sure, here is an update......

Took Cal for his six month check up this week. He is 15 lbs and 27 inches. He got some shots and all is good til his nine month ck up. woohoo!

Jon starts his job this week. He was supposed to start three months ago, but there was a hang up with the medical department. They had some concerns about his shoulder, and he had to jump through some hoops and do some testing. That is all behind us now and he is officially employed and working starting this week. He left me today. We will be apart for at least 3 weeks. He has been home with me and the kids for seven months so this separation feels really hard. I miss him fiercely. I like having my hubby home every night. This is temporary and we both know it, since this job is a day job, he just has to get thru a few months of traveling and training.

Home is wherever we are staying that week. We had the military move our stuff to storage, thinking he was about to start work. BUT... life always throws you a curve ball so we have been staying at the Florida house, my parents house, and at my aunts house in the mountains of GA. It has been an adventure to say the least, living like nomads, and I am glad to be almost finished. Hoping to move to tenn around sept, but that is still up in the air. We are really not sure where we will be stationed with the RR, we are looking at two moves in the next 8 months b4 we "land" for good.

Alysha got her permit. She will not be getting her license at sixteen, but we let her get her permit and get her feet wet driving a little. You can actually keep your permit for 4 years. It is a good ID card anyway.

Shay is talking more and more. She is almost completely potty trained. If we could get somewhere permanent to live, we would be done.

We head to Florida this week. I am excited. I have no pics to post cause I have no way to upload them. One day soon.........

I didn't realize that you were living like nomads! I guess I just thought you had bought or rented a home. I know a little how it feels moving so much from this past year. It almost killed me to move twice (especially since we did it ourselves). I told Greg that if we have to move again, we're selling almost all the furniture and just buying new (or new to us) wherever we go. Ugh! Hoping you get settled soon!

I understand the nomad life. Though it's probably way more difficult and intense with 3 kids in tow... you are a trooper! and I am so glad life is winding to a definite landing :). I know it will be fantabulous! Just like you :). Love you lots my bestie!
