Well were moving

and Josh doesn't know it yet.

I went and got keys to several houses today and went and looked and picked the one I liked the best (Natalie it had some Gecko poop in it though so that will have to be taken care of BEFORE I move in) and went back to housing and signed Josh's name to the paperwork.

Lucky him. At this rate by the time he gets home I may even have a move date scheduled. Which would be exactly how he would like it.

Meanwhile nothing else in my life is getting done.

Except dishes, they get done everyday no matter what.

Laundry however is another story....
This is the same tree that Josh and I got married under 10 years ago, it was nice to be able to go back on our anniversary and take pictures with the girls!

I still can't find my camera!

Too tired to think of a snappy title

It's late, well not too late only 940 but lately for me I'm usually in bed by now.

I have a lot going on right now and feel like I have to much to do and not enough time to get it done.

Grace has two weeks until school starts and is so excited to start. I am praying that she has a great teacher and a good year. I'm going to be looking to my sister in law for some help in supplementing her education since the school here is behind what she is used too and I know Dot is a great resource. I joined a home school group but since I'm not really homeschooling I'm not sure how much I'll pull from them. Plus Dot has idea what I deal with from Grace so that can be a benefit in making a recommendation. Anyways I'm rambling.

Brianna is doing great. Her teacher at the daycare told me when I picked her up today that there is a huge difference between how she was before we left for summer vacation and how she is now. The difference (which I didn't mention to them I wanted to see if they noticed) is that we started her on ADHD medication. She has all the classic symptoms but without the underlying problems Grace has so it's nice to see such an improvement. I know it's going to help her in school next year.

Grace starts school on the 31st and Brianna starts on the 8th so lots of changes around here.

Speaking of changes the builder I've been dealing with for the last year told me he was meeting this morning the manager for our housing area and sure enough this afternoon the area manager called me. He said he had to submit out paperwork to the housing director but I should know the next step later today or tomorrow, seeing as it's 10pm I'm hoping to hear tomorrow.

In other news it see that another surgery is going to be in my future. I cried when the doctor told me but I knew there was still a problem and didn't really think there was going to be a different way to make it better. This time however he says I need to be seen by a specialist (which are in Hawaii) and that in HIS medical opinion I should have been referred along time ago. He said he can technically do this other surgery I need done but he's afraid in a few months we would just be right back where we are now. I have no idea about time frames or anything yet as that all still has to get worked out. I do know with the kids it won't be simple. Please God just let this be the last step in the process followed by a quick recovery so I can get back to a normal life.

I better go I've fallen asleep twice typing this post.

I don't sleep well when Josh is gone. Good thing he will be home soon. Even when he is working long hours it's still nice to be able to snuggle up to him at night.

I miss him.

Getting back into the swing of things...

Or at least trying too.

So since we've been home I've been sick, shocker I know. Then yesterday Grace came down with something. She hardly ever gets sick so I hope it doesn't last long.

I have a to do list a mile long with stuff involving the kids, my volunteer job and my house. There doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to get it all done. Somehow though I still manage to find time to check facebook, hourly, and make dinner. I suppose that's all that really matters.

The girls are happy to be home but are missing California. They are also missing being able to play outside all day long. This does not happen here in Guam for several reasons. First it's WAY too hot in the middle of the day to be playing outside. Then Second rainy season started while we were gone and I think it's rained every day since we've been here. When I say rain I'm not talking about a drizzle or light shower that passes by I'm talking about heavy downpour for hours at times. Personally I love it, most of the time, and haven't been too bothered by it. I do have to say walking around with wet rubber flip flops isn't the best feeling in the world.

Remember me talking about how my house smells? Well after a year it still does and last week the builder told me that they think we're going to have to move. They want to rip out a bunch of walls and they just can't do that with us here. Understandable but still a hassle. They will pack us up and move us like before but it's still going to be a big pain. I should know more about that tomorrow, which in island talk means within the next two weeks, or so...
