We’re HERE!!

Yep! We’ve moved into the good ole town of Milwaukee!

The town is nice, but can’t seem to locate the grocery store for the life of me. Have a feeling that work is going to SUCK THE LIFE out of me. Hm. Good stuff.

Hope everyone is having a great week! More later!

Well, we are moving to Milwaukee in less than a week and we are mostly packed up and ready to go. It’s crazy because I can’t believe that we are really going – it feels so surreal. It hasn’t really hit me yet. We’re going to have to get new license plates, new drivers’ licenses, revise our insurance, and all that. It’s quite an undertaking to move out of state. But, I’m excited. We signed our lease on Friday and our apartment is cute, but hardly a place to settle down in for longer than a year. We are thinking that if we like downtown a lot, we’ll try to find a condo downtown. THere are some really cute condo’s on the river. That would be pretty cool.

Today is also our 1 year wedding anniversary. Last night Mom made a delicious dinner for us: prime rib, corn on the cob, garlic bread, salad, cranberries, applesauce, etc. THEN! As if that wasn’t awesome enough, Mom also had a replica of our wedding cake (chocolate fudge with chocolate fudge frosting). I didn’t remember how good our cake was, but i had some last night and it was AWESOME. SOOOO GOOD! 😛

Frank and I spent today packing, as I mentioned, and then we went to church. Our church is starting a young married couples group and they had a BBQ today, so we went. It was sad because the group is going to be awesome and we’re going to be in Milwaukee. Bummer!

I am not looking forward to tomorrow because I think it’s going to stink. I have a feeling it’s going to be rough. I sense that I will be at work for a LONG time.

Ugh. UGH.

Congratulations, Frank!

Well, Frank passed his oral exam with flying colors! Good job, Frank! Today he had one final, day-in-the-life-of simulator class and tonight he’s coming home. Thank goodness-I missed him A TON while he was gone!!

So, 9/24 will be my last day at my current job and then right away, I start up at my new job in Milwaukee on 9/27. YAY! I’m excited for the move and the new position.

Fantastic Weekend!

Frank and I had just the best time together on our little mid-week weekend. We enjoyed the Signature Room & the massages & the park & Blue Man Group… but most of all, we just had a fabulous time together. I miss being around him when he’s not here. He is just my best friend in the whole world!! It has been difficult when he hasn’t been home, but I make it without a whole lot of thought because I”m just so busy. But when I see him, I just don’t want him to ever leave again… and then he does… but ::sigh:: what did I expect when I married a pilot?? 😉

Life as We Know It

So Frank and I went to the apartments we liked and applied. Then two hours later, the chick from the place called & said that the one we applied for was gone, but guess what–they have a smaller one for the same price. Nuh uh. So Frank negotiated until the girl gave in and gave us 1/2 off on parking, free storage and waived the app fee. So now it’s a much cheaper apartment. Woohoo!

Now all we have to do is get approved for the apartment & move in & find me a job. Whew!

I’m so excited!!!

Well, I am in a little bit of a funk. I am not going to go into any details, but I’m just glad to be getting out of this state and moving some place new… even if it is only an hour or so away. I think it will be good for me to get away from here. Well, not so much here, but you know what I mean. Whomever you are… or is it Whoever? Whatever. 🙂 Frank has a nice glass of white wine for me on the porch.
