I have thought about starting a blog for awhile now and after talking to Mandy last friday, she convinced me. I guess now we have a reason to. We are expecting our first baby due March 2010. Pretty crazy, we didnt see this happening for awhile. A little suprised but we are very happy for this life changing experience. I am 9 weeks and the morning sickness has been killing me. I am taking reglan and it helps but still not feeling my best. I am very sleepy and not happy unless my belly is full. Poor max has to put up with me. This weekend I made him take me to dinner at 4 pm. I laughed when he said we are even beating the 80 year olds to dinner. He is a great husband and I dont know what I would do without him.
We are in the process of trying to buy a house. It has been very frustrating. Right now is the time to buy but it is so competitive. We have found a few houses we like and put offers on. A few weeks later we find out there has been over 40 offers and people are offering $60k more than the asking price, not to mention some are paying all cash..... So for now we are just playing the waiting game and thinking about moving on base.
We live in Vista Ca . We love it here but it is very hard to be away from friends and family. We are lucky it is only a 12 hour drive from home. I work at a dental office in escondido and I'm very happy to have a job right now. Max signed for another 4 years while he was in Japan last November. He just started a new job in May, being an instructor. He teaches new marines to take apart and fix hueys and cobras (helicopters). This will keep him around here for the next 3 years and I am very excited about that. Alot of the marine wives don't have their husbands home that long and in some cases for the birth of their children. I feel very lucky that we get to spend that much time together.
We have a bull terrier named Bunk. He is quite the dog with a very strong personality. I dont know what he is going to do when the baby comes and he doesnt have all of our attention. We have definately had our ups and downs with him the past 2 years. Now he is out of the puppy stage all he wants to do is sleep.
Well that sums up our life for now. Hopefully I will be good at doing this blogging thing to keep everyone updated!!
