It's official! We moved in FOR REAL this week!
I LOVE being back in San Diego, it's even better having Ronnie here with me this time!

I decided since I haven't posted anything in over a week, I can post TWO tonight!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE our new house!!! I never thought living in housing would be this awesome, we are in a great community with A LOT going on all the time. Tons of families around Not to mention it's in a pretty good location, right in the middle of San Deigo, we are not too far from so many places and it's easy to get around with all the freeways nearby.

My only complaint is the weather...I can't wait for it to be just a little warmer, warm enough for beach weather!

Since we moved in on Tuesday night...or should I say Wednesday morning at like 2 AM (I feel really bad about that, the Husband's truck is pretty loud! He hasn't named "her" yet but my nick name for it is The BEAST!) we have done a lot of moving in! So much that we have more empty boxes than we do full ones!

But our time hasn't been consumed with unpacking either, we have spent some time with our friends from Charleston. It's been really neat to have this time to act like normal people before our lives get crazy again.

Tonight I cooked our first meal in this house :] Grilled salmon and steamed veggies, it was delicious. I'm sitting next to Ronnie right now while he plays xbox and makes fun of my blogging. I don't think he has actually ever read my blog at all, but that is partly my fault since I don't like it when people read anything I write in front of me (which he would, and out loud too!)...maybe I'm just afraid of the reaction I'll get?

We are enjoying the last few days of leave before Ronnie has to report to his sub, and the next part of our adventure unfolds. I'm kind of nervous about it, not nearly as nervous as he is though. I'm thankful we have had this past year together, I'm glad I made the decision to move out to Charleston. I was thinking the other day if I had stayed here in San Diego and finished out my degree, our life would be completely different than it is now.

It's weird to step back and look at days like the days we've had so far in this house and know that someday soon it's just going to be the Charlie and I curled up on the couch in the evenings, while the Husband is miles and miles and miles away under the ocean in a location he can't even know.

This is our reality in just a few more days. Everyone keeps asking "Do you know when he leaves yet?"

I hope not too, too soon, but I know it's gonna happen, and I'm told it's gonna happen A LOT since it's part of the job of a Nuke on a fast attack submarine in the United States Navy.
