Exploring our new town.


Enjoying:  Civilian life!  My husband’s work week is only FIVE days long.  BLISS.  He wears JEANS to work.  BLISS.  If he does have to work overtime he gets PAID for it.  BLISS.  And, most importantly, when he comes home from work he isn’t carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders.  BLISS.  BLISS.  BLISS.

Stressing On:  Figuring out when our movers will finally arrive. Figuring out our health care sitch’ (“Free” health care was one of the very biggest perks of the military).  Figuring out how to start over and make new friends in our new town.

Eating:  Everything frozen and packaged from Trader Joe’s (no kitchen equipment + first time living near TJs = full freezer).  The first thing I am making when my kitchen arrives is a huge, from-scratch apple pie.  It is gonna taste so. damn. good.

Watching:  Agatha Christie’s Poirot.  Mr. Darling is even more into it than I.  I love it as much for the Art Deco sets and wardrobe as for the mysteries.

Looking Forward To:  Fall!  Trips into the city (Chicago) to visit friends and family.  Having a full and organized house again.
