We got our orders yesterday!! That means that it is official that we are moving, and that we are for sure going to North Carolina. For you non-military people, orders are just papers that are official military documents that give you dates and places for a soldier and all that are attached to him or her. You don't go anywhere without orders. Which also means we can start the process of getting on the waiting list for houses on post. I have about 6 weeks left in Texas. YAY!! I am just not a fan of Texas. I do enjoy warm (hot) weather, and I will miss that since NC can get very very cold in the winter. But, I have a good friend there, and we will be so far away from our families that they won't be able to visit very often. For some, that is a drawback, but for me, I like my family more when I don't see them very often. We get along better.

Dancing with the Stars was very good last night, once I got to watch it. I have to say, that I wasn't surprised that Jane got voted off. I can't help but wish that they would do something like that for us regular people.

Today at the park, there was a Texas grub. What is a grub? Well, it is yucky. It was at least 3 or 4 inches long, an inch wide, and had tons of legs. It looks like a huge roly poly/pill bug, but about 300 times bigger and yuckier. Andrew picked it up and brought it over telling us that it was a really big caterpillar. Uh, no. OK, just thinking about it is giving me chills and a yucky feeling in my tummy. I hope never to see a bug that big ever again. I should have taken a picture so that I could share it with all of you. Aren't you sad.


It's just me... said...

Yeah! I am so glad the orders are in. Though selfishly I could have gone for Las Vegas - I think NC will be better for you.

Did you check out that site I gave you? You'll LOVE it!

Oh - and NC gives me impetus to have us move to Chicago! Then we'd be affordably close!

And I was glad that Jane was voted off - I like the other dancers so much better! I LOVE Scary Spice! Plus her partner is hot hot hot!

I love, love NC. We used to go to the outer banks every year for vacation when we lived in Delaware. It is so beautiful there, you will love it. That bug sounds like Abby's dream come true. She is my little bug girl, obsessed with them. I think it's pretty cute.
