This will probably seem silly, but I am excited about cheese! Ha ha. At the store yesterday, we came across Halloumi cheese in the imported cheeses section. Don't ask me why we were looking. Back in my flight attendant days, I had a lot of layovers in Cyrpus. Sometimes I would layover there 5 days at a time, then be back a week later for another several days. It was my most frequent place to layover. I love Cyprus. It is an island mostly owned by Greece, but partially owned by Turkey. The sectioned owned by Turkey is bare for the most part. But the larger part owned by Greece, has resorts and a beautiful beach with clear water. Halloumi cheese is made in Cyprus and hard to find anywhere else. The hotel we stayed at, would serve it every morning for breakfast. I love it. Aaron tried a piece, and he thinks it tastes a bit like mozzerella at first. You can grill this cheese by itself. It doesn't melt like regular cheese. And it is so good. I haven't been to Cyrpus since I quit flying, but I miss flying very much. And I miss the people and the places, and the job very much. So coming across this cheese kind of takes me back as silly as it sounds.

A few pictures

We are all doing fine. Life is just a little crazy right now. I am beginning to wonder if we will ever finish unpacking and getting organized. Bethany and Shea are playing in one of the boxes right now. They are happy. I was invited to join another playgroup, so I am going to try to get the girls out and about. Today I have an appointment to see where I should begin on getting Bethany squared away and in school. Here are a few pictures.

We are in Texas

Well, we have arrived in Texas. It's umm okay. Actually it is just going to take getting used to. We couldn't stand Columbus for the longest time, but the last year or so, we got really attached. So hopefully it won't take us too long to like Texas. It is a huge change. GA had lots of trees and green. It had humidity, but I think i got used to it. Texas is less humid, but very hot! It is also flat and brown for as far as I can see. But I do like that despite it being like 100 degrees during the day, as soon as the sun sets, it goes down like 20 degrees right away. I do like that there seems to be things from both the western part of the US and the East coast. And there is a 7-11! For anyone who doesn't know, when I was pregnant with Bethany, I craved slurpees like you wouldn't believe! There were commercials for 7-11 slurpees on all the time, but no 7-11 stores in the state! We had to drive to Florida, lol. Anyway, it kind of became a joke that the next place we live better have a 7-11.

We are still in a hotel. Aaron will sign up for housing on Monday. We hear there is little to no wait for housing right now. We drove around Fort Hood yesterday and got a good look around. I have also found a playgroup for the girls. We are just very eager to move out of the hotel and into our own place. Bethany is about to start helping me type, so I better wrap this up.
