That seems to be the motto of our lives right now.
It seems like we had to “hurry up and wait” to find out where we were going. Then we had to wait for the husband to graduate school and get home. And then we had to wait to actually leave Alabama to head to our new home. And now we are having to hurry up and wait for our actual house. We are almost home. After our frustrating debacle at the airport in Anchorage this past week, we made it to Kodiak…at midnight. We arrived on Thursday Evening at around 11:30, so it was nearly 1:30 or 2:00 am [which was around 5:30 or 6:00 Alabama time…] before we were finally able to get some sleep. We went to the housing office on Friday morning hoping that we were going to land our new house but we didn’t. No worries, however. They put us up in really nice, apartment style [two full bedrooms] guest house and are giving us a pretty nice financial compensation for the frustration.
For lack of a better explanation, I will just simply say that the husband and I are loving the island. I know that it’s early and that we haven’t experienced all of the “elements” of living in Alaska, and we understand that; but even despite the nearly three feet of snow on the ground and the cold weather, we love where we are. We love the community, we love the base, the husband loves his new clinic, and the people here are fantastic. They are all so friendly and eager to help us out and make us feel welcome. And since I know that you all have been dying to see where we are and what home looks like now, so here ya go:
And because I know some of you are dying to know how Noah is taking to life in the last frontier, I figured I would just show you and let you make your own assumptions:
Hope you guys are having a great week!! We are getting somewhat settled so I’m hoping to get back to blogging about things other than our move and our travels. I know you guys have to be getting tired of it [then again, maybe not?!] Also!! Just a reminder that No Mom Talk Monday will be starting back up next week! Get your posts ready!
