Ok guys Im sorry I have been missing in action on the blog! Our internet decided to stop working about 3 weeks ago so we had to go ahead and cancel it.
ALOT has been going on!
First of all, we are all moved out of our house. THERE IS NOTHING in that house. We moved out everything on Monday and literally have a matress, little couch, and carboard boxes leftover from the movers as furniture. No tv, internet, and rarely phone usage because I don't want to use data.
Its super nice when Jake is home but I get so bored when he is gone. I am spending the afternoon watching Aubree cook on Skype at the Starbucks on base so I could do a little socializing and a blog update.
The move went by fast but it was super stressful. I have a lovely huge fever blister on my face to help remind me of those couple of days. Finally got our motorcycle shipped as well. We were planning on staying up at the Pantlings to save some money on BAH (housing allowance) and to take care of jake (the lab) but the people here who manage our rent would have feed us over $2300 for moving early.....
yes....corrupt people...not to mention all the other fees they are already charging us for not notifying them early. Because being in the military we have all of our information on anything weeks ahead of schedual *sarcasm*.
It has kind of left a bitter taste in my mouth about this island and leaving now isn't so sad.
However, Jake and I spent a night being tourist the other night out in Waikiki and the whole evening I was savoring every moment. I love how Jake and I fall in love more and more each day and those butterflies still flutter around in my stomach when I spend time with him :)
We drove down to the strip and walked around Waikiki. Started out going to a little tea house and sampled some teas and ended up buying some AMAZING little teas! We then saw that we were in around the time the Farmers Market is open so we walked through the market and tasted some pastries...mmmm
Next we walked to the beach and sat at the park till dinner time. Went to our special chinese place called Noodles for dinner afterwards. We have gone their with my family each time they were in and went there the very first time I came over. It is in the Hilton Village and just holds some sweet memories. We then went and sat out by the pool (where I spent my first evening here visiting with Jake 3 years ago!) and listened to the outdoor band for a couple of hours. It was the most beautiful night! We walked along and took some pictures of us wading in the lagoon and watched the sunset. We went and walked throught Fort Derassy park and looked though the Hale Koa hotel and just had the most wonderful evening.
We hardly go over to the tourist side of the island because it costs so much over there but I'm so glad we went.
I have been keeping up with my running. Not so much this week. I went Sunday morning and did real good. I am averaging about 2-2.5 miles straight with no stops but walk another mile and ride the bike a couple of miles sometimes. We've mostly been walking this week because of everything going on.
I need more motivation! Hopefully when things settle down. Its hard to cook healthy without any staples in the house let alone any kitchen appliances!
Sandwhiches and soup is on the menu for the next 2 weeks!
Yes, 2 weeks from today I will be boarding a plane out of here.
Wow. Didn't I just write a post about it being 3 more months in this place?
We almost got the truck ready for shipment so that is just another little step closer to home!
Jake suprised me and rented a boat for this Saturday so we are going boating!! I'm super excited because I've always seen the marina full of boats and sailboats coming and going from the base but we just never went. So Jake secretly took a Hawaiin boating class to get his liscence and asked me out on a date :)
It seems like i'm rambling...sorry! My mind is just a whirlwind.
I better go, theres alot of people in here so i'm getting distracted! haha ...how can people do homework in a public place like this???
sorry random thought
SEE YA"LL SOON!
