More Random Thoughts

It is 62 degrees outside. It's over 100 where we came from. Sorry folks, I had to put a sweatshirt on!

Junior is about to drive me bonkers. He wants to eat nothing but string cheese. I'm surprised he's not stopped up.

We toured Em's school yesterday. It looks so big. Too big. They do have the 6th grade in one wing except for specials, so I'm sure it will be okay, or at least I keep telling myself that.

I love our house. The basement is WONDERFUL to store all that crap that I didn't sort though before we moved. Gunner is making me do it now, but Junior sees it and wants it all. A boy after his grandmother's house.

Abs will be here in a few short days! We are going to the Art Museum and seeing my friend Dave before Abs flies in. I hope the airline can handle her. I told my mom to coach her about not screaming "We're going down!" when the plane turns. Last time we flew the other passengers were not amused, neither was I.

Our community office place has fresh cookies every day, and Em and Junior ask for one every time we go by. I wish they would forget. They try to think of reasons for us to go there, and as much as I would love one, it's not happening.

I hit the gym this morning and ran 2.5 miles. I'm getting back to where I was. I'm already looking at a triathlon in September. The swim portion is a little short, but it's in a pool. It's the fastest part for me, so I wish they would make that 16 miles!

We are slowly getting unpacked. Very slowly.

Junior and I went for a walk/run the other day, and I just can't get over how pretty it is here. Remind me of that when it is freezing cold, as I don't handle cold too well!

Does anyone know if there is a military place you can rent houses like you can in Washington at Pacific Beach?

I know there's a place in Hawaii that you can. There's also a place on Bald Head Island off of NC. Besides those places...I don't know.

Don't feel bad about slowly unpacking because I moved almost a year ago and still have a whole basement full of boxes!

62 degrees?? When it's freezing there I will return the rub in. ;-)

String cheese is awesome. I remember a time when I was a kid where all I wanted to eat was string cheese... wait... that was when I was 19 and living in my first apartment. I'm sure that means junior is very advanced for his age.

I'm glad Colorado is treating you so well.

Sorry I don't know of any place you can rent houses. :(

Did somebody say fresh cookies?
