People often say that honesty is the best policy, well I thought it would be fun to share how I'm honestly feeling about some things.
To be honest this move has me sufficiently stressed out. Not because of the movers or our timeline but solely because of the housing situation. For anyone who has moved to a new location you know how stressful it can be. Kyle is not a MAJ yet so renting off post is not ideal because most homes are priced for that BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing), which would likely force us to come out of pocket.
Our ideal is living on post but I swear it is like the Hunger Games. I promise you I am not exaggerating. Student housing at Leavenworth is first come, first serve. Meaning that you better be at housing at zero dark thirty to see if there are any homes available. The problem with this is, everyone is arriving at different times so who the hell knows how many houses are available daily.
Now, they do offer a "virtual" signing option. If you are lucky enough to know people there you can entrust them to show up at housing to view a house and maybe sign for it ahead of time. However, that means if you sign for a home you are paying rent on 2 places haha. I would rather do that than stay in a hotel for a week or more. Thankfully, a friend has agreed to do this for us but there is a chance a home may not be available for who knows how long. Fingers crossed and may the odds be ever in our favor.
To be honest I've been terrible about giving Emma and Fishy enough attention lately. They are perfectly content most of the time just laying on their blankets on the couch but I know they need love and snuggles too. As I am writing this Emma has made her way into my lap, so clearly she is agreeing with this.
To be honest I've been watching the news far too much lately and it really is a downer. Over the last year I've started watching it more at night after E goes to bed whereas before I would rely on Kyle for the news. Unfortunately, I can't handle it anymore so back to Food Network I go. Even though I have seen every possible episode of Chopped, it makes me happy.
To be honest I am denial that our niece and nephew are growing up haha. Today is their last day of school and next year they will be in 5th and 1st grades. Umm when did that happen?! I feel like they were just born, I certainly didn't give them permission to grow up. :) Lord, help me now when it comes time for E to go to school.
To be honest I've seen far too many people commenting on the parenting styles of others. Unfortunately, we live in a time where people tend to say things even when they are not warranted or needed. I'm of the mindset that if no one is being injured or harmed then it is none of my business to comment. Even if I am asked, I tend to shy away from answering because I just don't want to go down that road. This really pertains to life in general not just raising kids.
I have to say writing this post was pretty fun! I may have to make this a regular thing.
