Not sewing related....

I finally have internet! YAY! 
So this is where I now call home.
This is an areal view of Point Mugu NAWC, CA. I love it here. We lived here 3 years ago and it's so nice to be back! I'll get some better pictures soon! 
So we've been here for 2 weeks and my 6 year old is having the time of her life. She has made a new friend which is actually the daughter of our old Skipper when we were here before. But since she was 3 when we left, she doesn't remember her. Now, her dad is the Skipper of the base and they've become quite close. The nice thing about living on a Naval Base is that kids can actually play outside in the neighborhoods. Like I used to do when I was a child. There is a park on every single block on this base and they are all new. So everyday, my daughter and her 8yr old friend hop on their bikes and hit the 3 closest parks to our house. They are gone most of the day playing outside, riding bikes, hide & seek on our street, etc. It's the most wonderful feeling that my kids can do this here. NEVER would they be able to if we lived in town somewhere. I love that there are military police patrols 24/7 here and you can't even get on this base until you have an ID and have been cleared. Yes, I know there are still freaks in the world, but here, I feel safe. I know just about everyone on my street and on all the surrounding streets and about every other house is a family that is in my husband's squadron. Everyday my daughter comes home and says she's met new friends. She hasn't experienced this before, so she is thrilled and I am very happy. Navy life is good. Even though hubby leaves tomorrow until Aug 7th or so! :(  On the upside, my sister arrives from Calagary on Saturday and we are headed to Disneyland for a whole week! Ready for some Mouse fun!!

moving SUCKS!!!

Just a quick note to let you know I am still alive...barely! Still no internet at the house. I have no idea when I'll even get it. The date keeps getting pushed back and I can honestly say I feel completely and utterly lost without it! Pathetic, I know! As we speak, the kids are playing at a park here on base where I just happen to be able to hijack a unsecured internet connection to check emails and pay bills. 256 emails of which MAYBE 15 were real emails and not junk.

I haven't been able to check all your blogs and it's driving me nuts! I know when I finally get the internet at home it will be hours of endless reading to catch up on everything! Which is fine, but I'm chomping at the bit to be able to see what everyone's been up too!

Hopefully I'll be back online soon. But for now...I have hundreds of boxes to unpack and a whole house to organize and make a home.
