the beginning

So yea! We have a blog now. John has been wanting one since he found out how many of our friends had one over this last Christmas break. We've been in Port Angeles since Sept and i'm just now feeling like we're all moved in. it took a month to get the military to move our stuff over from Coeur d' Alene, then i had to set it up. It was fun to actually see again what wedding gift we had received since the only time we saw them was when we opened them, then they were sent to CDA with a friend for when the movers picked everything up there. So we (we=me in this case) unpacked and set things up, decided what we did and didn't need to keep, and then threw everything in the back bedroom as storage. John uses that back room as his "closet" even though i went to the effort of getting a hanging pole for my side so he would have his very own half, but i don't complain because he spends 90% of his morning getting ready in the other room not keeping me awake. So yeah, this room just has stuff in it including a mini fridge and a bunch of storage bins with my old barbies and art supplies and things we don't use. i have a big box for Goodwill, but john added things to it not knowing it was goodwill, so i need to go through it one more time. Before we left for Christmas i actually organize this room though, so i was happy to get that done. My kitchen was the first thing i organized, then our living room, and our bedroom. so basically, i had my home finished about 70%, then i did the extra room and had about 90% done. Now, i'm at 99%. The other week when my friends Christy and Nate came over from CDA (the first people we've actually had in our house except for the kid that lives at the end of our row of houses) so i had to have it complete and presentable. i hung my pictures finaly. That one thing alone has made me feel at home. i didn't realize how good it would make me feel. Once i finished, i felt like the mom on the Incredables when she calls the dad at work to tell him they were officially moved in since all the boxes were completly unpacked, but i had to fight off the urge to call john to tell him. My dad and step-mom have been in their house for a few years (4 i think now), and they still don't have their pictures done. i'm starting to worry for them... But i plan to take picture of it all finished soon...i just have to talk john into taking the old little tv downstairs insted of keeping it in the middle of the floor of the living room with his game chair and a million cups and plates surrounding it from his playing xbox.
