Time is flying by and passing ever so slowly all at the same time.
I apologize for my hiatus from the blog! We have had some life changes that have distracted me for a while now. First off we made a small move, around the first of November we changed to a new apartment in the neighborhood of Rosslyn. After flag day had passed, we realized with all the… Continue reading Lo siento mis amigos.
This past Friday was our flag day ceremony. Which is the huge ceremony towards the end of A-100 training where everyone finds out where they are being sent on their first assignment. The closer it got and the more I thought about it, I was beginning to get just a little bit nervous… excited and… Continue reading Flag day is here!
After being shipped out on August 22nd. Followed by a handful of phone calls to locate it, we got a delivery date of September 16 from 2-5pm. Finally at 7pm our UAB is here! Crazy what a little decor and some pillows can change.

Quick update as our pack out takes place. It’s been even harder being at work and not being able to see, but knowing all my stuff will be gone when I get home. Took my lunch break to visit and see how it was all going. Everything is wrapped up, packed up and ready for… Continue reading Its getting real.
