I can say that 95% of the boxes that we kept in the house have been unpacked. It is nice for this place to feel like home. We downsized with this townhome so we had to rent a storage unit for some of our stuff. I can't believe how much stuff we had, and how much we relied on a garage. We did some purging while unpacking, and hopefully we can purge before we move again in 6-8 months.
I was worried about the dogs not having a yard, but they are doing great. Only a few accidents. We do have a tiny, fenced patio that we let them use in emergencies. We put some astroturf down and that seems to be close enough to grass for them. Otherwise, they are really good at letting us know or waiting for their walk every few hours. Hannah loves having playgrounds and a pool within walking distance. We won't be stuck in the house all day while my husband is at work. The downside to this place is it is remote and small. South Texas is so different than Florida. It is in the 90s before noon, and it is so windy it is hard to walk some days. I don't even want to know what July and August will be like if it is already so hot. I definitely don't want to see my electric bill. I do miss all the activities Pensacola had to offer. I hear the MWR has a lot of stuff to do, and I am hoping that is true. And if we get desperate enough to do something, Corpus Christi is only 45 minutes away with Padre Island only about an hour. San Antonio is only 3 hours away, and I can't wait to take a weekend trip there. I really am going to try to make the most of my time in this tiny Texas town. I have met some nice people, and I know that does make a difference.
In completely unrelated news, in one month Hannah turns 2. I can't believe how fast time is flying. The terrible twos are definitely here. I am not sure what happened to my sweet baby, but this pushy, bossy toddler can change back to a sweet kid any day now. She drives me absolutely bonkers some days.
