Well it is now official, we are homeowners! We are so glad that this part is over with and we can now just concentrate on moving. I will say that the home buying process for us was actually smooth. And the best advice I can give anyone who plans on purchasing a home, make sure […]

All the tedious work of buying a house has passed…thankfully! We are now just waiting to close on our home. At this point you would think stress would be gone. But it’s not. It won’t be gone until we close and officially own the house! In the mean time I am busy going through everything […]


March 18, 2013 House

I just got back from 10 days of being gone to Texas. The entire purpose of the trip was to buy a house. Unfortunately  Jerry couldn’t go since his Fire 1 class has not finished yet. However, my Mom did go with me which was awesome! It’s been several decades since we have spent some one […]

I am happy to say that we now have a Realtor! I will be leaving for Texas around March 8th so I can find us a house. I knew that I needed to find a Realtor soon, so she or he would have enough time to gather our needs and wants in a house, as […]

So we have been pre-approved for a home loan. Now we need to decide what area to live in around Fort Hood. Our first instinct was Harker Heights or Copperas Cove. But as we have thought more about it, we have realized that the only reason we want to be in those areas is so Jerry won’t […]

It’s that time again! We came down on orders (finally) in November. The report date was set for the end of October (we weren’t happy about them being so far out), so hubby put in a request for early reporting and as of last week that date was approved and we now have amended orders! […]

OK, well I hope I don’t pull out my hair, but I just realized how extremely busy we will be this year. Why? Well for starters we received PCS orders with a report date at the end of the summer. This will most likely be our last PCS as retirement is quickly approaching. In light […]

My youngest son came home from school yesterday (he’s 9), and said he needed to sell 50 items so he could get $50 from school in order to help his family buy a house. That raised my eyebrow to say the least. Then he told me his school is doing a fund-raiser, if they sale […]
