Well, we are all settling in nicely at our new base. I have to say, out of all of us, I think my Abby-girl is the most relieved that we are done traveling! :o) LOL! She is utterly and completely bored, though, as not all of our household goods are here yet. Abby has either been sleeping or following me around the house for the past week. :P She is currently snoozing in my lap as I type this post... if there are any typos, I blame the cat!
The Lord truly blessed during our PCS, and we were able to get into base housing the morning after we checked into billeting! As an added bonus, our first shipment of goods was already here waiting for us to schedule a delivery time. Yes, the Lord has certainly been taking care of us throughout our move, wouldn't you say?
Oh, and here's some more good news -- I received a call today from the movers, and our things are scheduled to be delivered on Thursday! Praise the Lord! The items were not originally scheduled to arrive here until 11Feb07, so we are grateful that they are here so early. We were a bit worried that we wouldn't have enough time to unpack before the baby arrives. Now it looks as if we'll be pretty much settled in before he is due. (And, maybe Abby will give me back some of my personal space, LOL!) God is good!
The housing isn't exactly the most beautiful in the world, but it's warm, dry, and I know I can make it into a home for us. The only really bad thing about this house is that it has just one bathroom... and it's all the way upstairs! Not the most horrible thing ever, but, considering I am nearly 9 months pregnant, I really don't enjoy walking up the stairs every five minutes. I think I should just stay up here all day long, huh? As a side note, this house is scheduled to be demolished within the next year, so the military will pay to move us into new housing.
We spent a week and a half visiting my husband's family before driving to our new base, and had a great time of rest and reunions. We have been here in our new house for about a week now, so we still don't quite feel at home yet. I suppose these kinds of things take time, though.
Thanks for all your prayers and well-wishes! I can't wait to get back into blogging and reading what you all have had to say! I will probably be posting sporadically as we unpack over the next few days/weeks, but I just wanted to let you all know that we are here, we are alive, and we are home (even if it doesn't feel that way yet)!
