being a grown up again.

What a bad little blogger I've been. I really don't mean to let this much time pass between my posts, but you see, up until pretty much 12 hours ago, my office was a room full of boxes and I just couldn't seem to get myself motivated enough to unpack them. Then I drank a whole bunch of espresso and voila! I have an office and I'm blogging (and my laundry is done and the toilets are clean, in case you were wondering. God bless that espresso).

And guess what else? Did you know having a job makes you really tired by the end of the day? No, I'm not kidding! When you work, you get up at like 7:30 and then you stay awake all day doing stuff. Then you keep doing stuff til 5pm and by the time you get home, you're ready for bed. Apparently R's school is the same way. We spent so long in Pensacola not working and not being in school that I think we forgot that this is what real people do everyday. So it's taken us a while to get into a groove and start acting like grown ups. I think this three day weekend helped.

So, finally, I'm being a grown up and unpacking my house and blogging. Hello again!

We have been getting settled in nicely though. We are so lucky to have friends here, Brad and Kristen, who we met when they were stationed in Pensacola. We are really starting to feel at home in VA Beach, which is nice because I think it took a lot longer when we were in Florida. I am loving my job, which is not only challenging, but incredibly rewarding as everyone I work with is so encouraging and they tell me all the time what a valuable asset I am. I couldn't ask for a better boss or co-workers (it's a small operation, less than 10 people). My schedule is pretty great too, considering I get to make my own hours and come and go as I please.

As far as R's school, well I really wouldn't know. He's learning a lot of secret-y stuff, so he can't exactly come home and discuss it at dinnertime. Seeing as R is the strong silent type himself, I think it's a pretty good fit for him so far. What I can tell you is that he's finding it to be really interesting and he is enjoying it.

I'm working on a few finishing touches on the house, but then it should be ready for a blog debut. I promise I'll be a grown up and actually post again soon.

Until then, I hope wherever you are, you're having a very happy Fourth of July!

  1. We've spent so long not working that we won't know what it's like either :) Plus, I think Josh has NO idea what it's like out in the real world because his Navy schedule is usually pretty cush. I can't wait to see the house debut and I am so glad that you guys are starting to feel at home! It's so hard to be far away from home and not know a lot of people! I've been here over a year now and I just now feel like I am making some good friends.
