But, what was supposed to be just a trip to get some sun and maybe a little warmth turned into a trip with a purpose - find a house! We got the verbal word shortly before we left that Jason will be stationed in Mobile starting this summer for 4 very hot years. He'll be an instructor pilot at the Aviation Training Center and is VERY happy about that. I'm happy because he's happy, though I wish ATC could be in North Carolina or something. I mean, seriously - Alaska to Alabama?!? Last summer, we had a day or two when the temperature actually hit 70 degrees here. In Alabama, in the summer, it cools down to 80-ish at night. We're going to melt! But we're excited to be heading back to the lower 48, and we're that much more excited now that we have a place down there to call home.
The layout of the house is really great. We're especially happy with the dual vanities in the master bathroom, the huge walk-in closet, and the fact that one of the bedrooms and a bathroom are sort of off in their own area of the house which will be perfect for guests! And now, for the next 4 months, I will try to decorate and re-decorate the place in my mind!
Now we just need to sell our place here. And, thanks to the power of Craig's List, that might happen sooner than we thought. We showed it twice on Saturday and we're expecting an offer tomorrow! Fingers are crossed that the selling process will go as well as the buying process.
And now, very quickly because the wailing from upstairs means a baby is ready to eat again... I'm pretty sure the grandmothers would kill me if a put pictures on a blog without including any of said baby. So here are a few... In the first she's showing off her love of yogurt. The second is her playing with the curtain at the hotel in Mobile. And finally, her first taste of cheesecake... she's DEFINITELY her daddy's girl on that count. She LOVED it!
