Long time no write

So much has happened since I last wrote. We've moved to a new post, and are finally closer to family than we've been in years! Just last week we spent five days in Cancun with my husband's family and ALL our children. Our oldest son was even able to come back for R&R from Korea and he and his wife were able to join us!! This was our family photo on the beach.
 I can't believe our kids are grown like this! One of the twins was actually taller than our oldest son. That was pretty crazy to see when they hugged hello.

As far as what's taken place since last time I wrote, like November 2011, we've moved to a new post. We were only at Fort Bliss 18 months when they asked if we were willing to move to a new post. Of course we were willing...much, much, much closer to family!!! We bought a house, something I was thinking we wouldn't do until we retired from the military...but we're so happy we did. It's nice to have a home of our own again! SO NICE!!

It's also nice to have grass again, something we really missed in El Paso! The dog thinks he is in heaven since he's not had grass since he was 6 weeks old. It's funny that we can actually see a "smile" on his face now.

I'm still working for the same company I worked for in El Paso. I transferred here with a promotion, and LOTS of work. :) Still trying to adjust to all the changes. I moved here a month before the rest of the family to get through my OJT, for the new position, in the new area. It was a very stressful move to do it the way we did, but hopefully it made things easier than they would have been had I not...I guess we'll never really know though. Either way, we're here and settling in to a new home, routine and post.

I was thinking tonight that I need to get back to writing again. I really miss it. Even if nobody's reading, it feels good to put my thoughts down somewhere. :)

Aw! Wow! I have equally been bad about consistent blogging - I find myself "blogging" in my head! Thanks for updating - hope all is well! :)

Laura said...

Hey Allyn! Call anytime in the evenings. My days are so nuts I don't want to promise I could talk, but you can sure try. :) I really love to catch up in person as well. I'm a lot closer now! Miss you!!

Hey Lauren! I do the same thing! All is well, how are you?

Laura!!!!! Its been so long since Ive talked to you. So much has happened with your family and you are right ...the boys have grown. I have thought of you often and I would enjoy hearing more of your writing. My son is out of the AF now, living just 2 hours from us going to school fulltime (GI bill!!) Our oldest son and wife blessed us with our first grandbaby...oh the spoiling is fun! So glad that you are doing well and the family photo is wonderful!

Laura said...

Hey Laurie! So good to hear from you. I bet it is wonderful having a grandbaby to spoil. Our son has a little more to go and is thinking of getting out as well. The GI bill is a wonderful thing!! Thanks for writing!
