Adventure Awaits!

When the rep walked up to the house we were about to turn back over to the military housing company, I bristled at her container of Lysol wipes. The wipes wouldn't have been a big deal, but paired with her attitude, I got a little defensive. I get that they have to make sure the … Continue reading Adventure Awaits!

Post-PCS move, all the boxes are unpacked. The paper (oh so much paper) has been meticulously straightened and folded and packed into one giant box by my equally meticulous husband. (I'm more of a shove it in a box and pack it down type, but whatever.) We have offered it all to others in the … Continue reading Unexpected
