So we still have not had success finding a house yet. We either need $4,000 a month to live in a reasonably nice house close to base or $2,500 a month to live 45 min to a hour away. Houses in our price range (so hard to find that even allow pups) somewhat close to base allows 1 dog but not 2, or dogs under 20lbs. Just cant win. We have to be out of our hotel at the end of April because TLA runs out. (BAH is not enough) We could stay here longer but it is just sooo expensive for the dump we are living in. $170 a night adds up to ALOT a month! Mike had another TLA appointment this morning and they told him that we are now #4 on the list, but it could still take till the the end of May, or longer. So I spend my days, checking Craigslist, then AHRN, then Rent.com and then doing it all over again, and again. I just wish Mike wasn't leaving yet. I want him to be able to say yes or no to the house that we are going to live in for a year... if we ever find one.
Mike is actually at the dentist as I write. He was suppose to have a cleaning and a cavity fill today, then next week have all 4 of his wisdom teeth removed. They wanted to have him all done before he leaves but its not going to happen. The surgeon that does it is on leave so now he has to put it off even longer. He's needed if for years so another few months wont hurt.
We also got a email that my car has made it to the island. I'm so excited to have her back! His Jeep is sooo hard to drive so I don't like to drive it at all. The seat only goes up so far so I'm reaching for the clutch every time I shift, it never wants to downshift so its hard to slow down, and you have to pump the breaks to stop, definitely not use to that. That's what you get when you buy a 82' I guess. He loves it tho so that's all that matters. He's going to love it even more once he can take the top off. We haven't had a place to put the hard top once we take it off, another reason why we need a house. We are going tomorrow to pick up my car and then I will be free... free to do whatever I need to do without waiting till 6:00pm for my husband to get home! Very exciting! But then I will need to get a safety check. (Hawaii makes every car do this) I already no that I will need to get my reverse lights fixed and hopefully they wont say anything about my windows being to dark. ( I'm not going to be a happy camper if they make me take them off) I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything else is up to standard.
Mike is probably going golfing this weekend. He has been talking about it ever sense we got here and he finally found a friend that likes to go too. Other then that, its up in the air for this weekend. Well, I have a few of things in mind but nothing set yet. I just love that every weekend there is something to do, let alone something different to do.
