A little update on us

 This is going to be a short post since everything is still crazy!

   I can't believe it's June already. It feels like it's been years since I've posted anything, and I am so sorry for that. WiFi at the hotel was horrible at best and would constantly drop the connection. Our service with Sprint was pretty much non existent and we ended up switching to Verizon after only a week here.
     Our flight from VA was easy with only one layover, but that made our flight into Honolulu almost 10 hours long.... We picked up our dog without any issues and I have never seen him happier to see us. He only left a day before us but we missed him so much. It actually made our travel day much easier by having him fly the day before us. It took us about two weeks to adjust to the 6 hour time difference. There are still days we all take a nap after lunch. The time difference stinks with trying to talk to our family and friends on the mainland and east coast. There have been so many times that I want to call someone after dinner and start to dial then realize how late it is over there. We got lucky and only spent 3 weeks in the Navy Lodge. Our first week here we were offered a house on the Army base near were A1 will be working. Only downside,  it didn't become available until the end of may.
    I will do a post on the house once were fully unpacked and all decorated. Right now I'm posting from my phone because my office/sewing room is still partly in boxes. I'd love to hear how y'all have your offices and homes decorated! The move into the new house went smoothly. We had 2 great guys unloading the crates. We couldn't have asked for a better team. We're not unfinished packing yet but we need to get some storage items before we can finish. Our last house had a built in bookcase in the living room so we're on the hunt for one that looks pretty, is sturdy, and fits our budget. Unfortunately we have discovered a few broken items... my dresser and A1's motorcycle has a cracked fender ( he had installed a new one weeks before we left Va) and a few small items here and there that don't really matter. We've never had to deal with filing a claim for good damaged during a move before so we will see how long this takes. It always seems like you think you have all the boxes unpacked and BAM! you walk into the garage and there's more boxes.
    One day we will be fully unpacked and our schedules back to normal. A1 is already back to work and A2 is still deciding what activities she wants to sign up for.We gave her a limit of 2 activities, she wants to do everything at once. I still can't believe she starts Kindergarten in a few months....

Until next time y'all!
