We haz house!

Now all we need is our stuff. We have arrived at out new home and are settling in. I have begun the process of making new friends and otherwise getting settled in. I just wish I had my stuff with me to make life that much simpler. We are supposed to be getting it on Wed and I am counting down the hours.

My husband's job turned out not to be the one he thought he was getting, it is a much more exciting one (for him) that he had thought. It is a posting that is highly sought after so he had just assumed that he was put in one of the less desirable one, but apparently the other applicants were not acceptable for one reason or another. Most days he will work the normal hours but there is going to be random and unpredictable travel involved, up to 30 days of it at times. Part of the confusion developed because most of his unit is actually away at the moment. I am not looking forward to the times he is away but I have been rather spoiled his last two assignments.

The weather here is amazing!!! It gets chilly at night and really wish that I had remembred to bring a sweat shirt or something. There is a playground steps away from our back yard and there is also a rather nice playground with in walking distance in town. The town itself is a small one, but packed with important things. There is a library, post office and a book store with in easy walking distance. The main deficiency is that there is not a decent (ie non touristy) grocery store in the area. We have to drive about a half hour over twisty roads away to get decent shopping.

My neighbors are nice and friendly. I was reassured that the local school was excellent and that there was a preschool in town for Harry to attend. My ward is nice and happy to have our children to help fill up the shrinking primary.

I will write more once we get unpacked and settled in.

Oooh, it sounds like you have landed in a good place! Even if hub's work keeps him away, it's good to have him somewhere that it exciting and interesting for him - makes for MUCH happier family life in my experience, eh?!

And it sounds like you are going to settle in well there and make a life fairly smoothly. I do hope that it does go that way for you!

Happy unpacking!

I'm glad that things seem to be going so well. For me, the most stressful part is getting settled once you actually get there - the unpacking part specifically! Good luck!
