Big news, people of the Internet. It's time for the big reveal. The announcement of the decade.
Well, ok, maybe it's not that big. But it's big to me.
For those of you who are new to this blog, a little background: Jason reenlisted in the U.S. Navy at the beginning of February after having been out for two years. He has been at Naval Station Great Lakes in Illinois waiting for his orders for the past month.
Well, they finally came through!
The place we'll be spending the next few years is... (drumroll, please):
Naval Air Station Lemoore in Lemoore, California!
Jason has to report there at the beginning of April. I don't know yet when I'll head out, but probably not until we have someplace to live. I'm hoping for base housing, because they are all absolutely gorgeous.
In other news, I finally got a much-needed haircut. Below is the style I was aiming for, and how it turned out on me. And yes, I got my hair done like a Real World cast member. Stop judging me. I have hair issues.
I like it! I am also sorely tempted to dye my hair darker for dramatic effect. I won't actually do it, of course, but I can't help but think that it would be a striking look.
It felt so good to have a reason to get out of the house yesterday. The weather has been sunny and gorgeous, the snow is melting, I took a spin through the car wash, and I even saw a bee. I was all, BEE! Hi, bee! I love you, first springtime bee! Stay out of my car, bee!
Have I ever mentioned how much I love going through the car wash? Because I love it. I like to pretend that the brushes are giant octopuses attacking my underwater vehicle. The car wash is one reason Jason and I get along so well: he washes his cars a lot, so I get to see my octopuses a lot. It is a win-win situation.
But I have to go. There is college basketball to be watched, and I like that even more than I like car wash octopuses.
