You can't make me.

It's almost midnight and I told myself I wouldn't go to sleep until I at least packed something. Now is actually prime packing time because little Jack won't need me for several hours, and I work best at night anyways. But why is it so hard to get started? I only have 4 packing days left, and I don't have one box pac--oh wait, I have one packed. But I have yet to put tape on it and seal it up so that doesn't really count. I'm beginning to think this whole moving thing is going to be a little bit of a hassle. Unfortunately, with Harrison choosing a career in the military, this will be a fate I'm afraid I will face many times. Earlier I decided to start with the books - pack those first. But I came across some old journals, and we spent the whole night reading through them and reminiscing about our courtship, engagement, and early married life. Quality time? Yes. Productive time? No. Now Harrison is asleep, and I'm eating goldfish and stalling for as long as possible.

First off good luck with the military thing! Im a military wife and I hate it! the military does not cater to family! in fact half the time you will think they really don't care if you have a family or not! as to the moving bit one advantage is the military will pack you up, so you will not have to do a think packing wise! inst that great! i love it! Just make sure you watch them carefully cause things have been known to come up missing or broken! so just be careful. Im not trying to scare you or anything i just wanting you to know those thing in advance cause the military almost broke my little family apart. But there are some good things about the military! you get free housing! They give you a house to live in or the give you money for rent so you can live off base! its great! its let my hubby and i save alot of money up! but anyways ive bored you enough! good luck with everything!

Hey sister! I know the whole moving thing sucks....I remember when we moved this past time thinking..We are going to have to do this every 3-5 years and crying! Of course Patrick comforted me and told me all the advantages of being in the army. Its hard, but its good. We will have to stick together! I love you so much! I can't wait to see you and baby Jack soon! XOXO
