Buying a car

Well, deciding whether to buy a car or have the Army ship one of our cars over here.  Either way, it will be a few more weeks.  We are still waiting for our DLA to arrive, since that's the money we are supposed to use towards buying a junker over here.  A/C is really the only thing I want in our car.  The summers here supposedly get to around 105, and completely humid.  Yuck.  I just want the ability to take my kids upstairs first, and then come back down and deal with the groceries, instead of being dropped off with everything on the sidewalk below, and wondering how the heck to get everything upstairs.  (You should have seen the day that I had 5 large priority mail boxes that Mom sent over- luckily, I sent J up in the elevator, and our friends met him there so he could bring our little blue grocery cart down). 

I'm supposed to be uploading pics right now, but I keep forgetting to gather the cameras.  :P  So, please excuse me while I go do that. 

Doo, dee, doo, dee, dee, doo, dee, doo....

Ok.  Now that I have at least one of the cameras uploading (sheesh, 154 pictures!), I shall continue. 

There will be pictures of Second Market, and our recent train ride to iPark Mall.  I think I'll spare the general public the blurred photos my children have taken. 

We are finally getting back onto a normalized schedule, now that my house does not weigh me down with all its boxes and packing paper.  I felt like I was drowning in paper lately, and it just got worse from there. 

Anyhow, for anyone that is feeling disorganized, whether it be life in general, your faith, your house, your parenting, or your body, I highly recommend the book Life Management for Busy Women, by Elizabeth George.  I have pored over this book so many times in the last few weeks, I think I have some of it memorized.  It has really helped me re-prioritize my life, and get going again. 

I'm excited, too, because I know what my birthday present is!!  :D  I even got to pick it out (too bad I have to wait to actually order it)!

I stink at linking to Amazon, so that's just a copied link.  But that's gonna be my new baby!  It comes with the walking foot I would need to finish my quilts that Sandy helped me start back in Cove.  I've been getting all my fabric out and organized, and daydreaming over the things I want to make.  Sigh..  :)

Alrighty, its time to get ready to go.  We have a meet n greet in about half an hour, and since both my younger ones are still sleeping, I will get the rest of us ready, and plop them in the stroller at the last minute.  :P
