Well, it's official. I am in my new house. Now, as far as unpacking, HA HA! That's funny. Just moving here about sent me into labor and on top of it, I have gotten sick with a chest/sinus cold. I have just been taking it easy and only getting things out that I desperately need. I do have to say THANK YOU to my friend Jennifer. She helped me a lot. She came over on Monday and pretty much packed my house up for me and then Tuesday, she helped me unpack my kitchen. She has been a HUGE life saver. Like I said, I was almost thrown into labor on Monday from all the stress and bending over and everything else I did. I didn't lift anything over my weight limit but just the stress on my body was enough. Luckily I'm doing better and now just trying to get over this stupid cold. Other than that. I'm doing my best to settle in and straighten up. The only down fall to this new house is that for some reason, there is a huge sand pit right out my back door and the dogs and I are constantly tracking it in. I have my "pre-inspection" on Monday with the housing company and I'm going to ask them to fix it cause I have to sweep at least 4-6 times a day just to keep the house from looking like the sand pit outside. The dogs seem to like being able to actually use their dog kennel that we bought for them so long ago but never got to use cause of how swampy my old house was in the back yard.
After the drama I heard about that went down in the old neighborhood last night, I am really glad I did choose to move out. I don't know all the details but I was woken up at 4 am by my friend that still lives in the neighborhood (2 doors down from my old house) telling me that our neighbor across the streets husband, (who is home on R&R) just found out she had been cheating on him while he was in Iraq and went postal. He didn't actually hurt anyone but there was such a commotion that it woke her up from a dead sleep and that they were actually in her yard fighting. I obviously didn't witness anything but I guess 4 MP cars with 2 MPs per vehicle showed up and started searching the neighborhood for the husband cause he said he had a gun and wanted to kill himself. Yeah, scary stuff. I am just glad I wasn't there to have to listen to it cause I guess it went on from about 2am-6am this morning. I was on the phone with my friend from 4-5 am and it had started to finally calm down. I don't' know what had actually happened after that but we did see the husband this afternoon get dropped off at the house. I'm just glad to be out of there and away from the drama. So far, the people in this new area are quiet and keep to themselves which is what I like. I just meet the lady that lives 2 doors down from me and she seems to be nice. They just moved here from Fort Stewart, GA.
Well, I'm rambling cause I only got about 5 hrs of sleep and I am just so slap happy. I hope the blog makes sense. OH I do have some sad news. The other day, 1 soldier was killed while out on a mission by a suicide bomber and 3 others were wounded but later in the day returned to duty. They were part of the 103rd CO which is part of the 94th En Co. (Unit Matt is in). Another soldier was killed in the same bombing and another wounded but they were part of the 84th En Co which is replacing Matt's unit. My heart goes out to the families in their time of need. It's just so sad it had to happen to them with the Holiday's and the fact that they are days/weeks from coming home. I will sure be praying for them.
Well, I hope you all have a good weekend. I am going to rest cause I am extremely busy this next week with appointment after appointment. We love you all!
