* watching The Office...the show is hilarious! and don't we all know a few of those zany characters in real life???
* eating those microwavable burritos...so not recommended!
* taking Tara to the playground 3-4 times a day
Here's some of what our lives have looked like this past while...
(I have been wearing a variation of this outfit pretty much everyday!!)
This is where I have been blogging from...this tiny desk and Tim's laptop...as you can see, I have my little sidekick with me all the time. With sketchy internet connections and Tara wanting to play with the computer...it has been a challenge. But so glad I have been able to blog during this time; it has kept me sane and been such a tremendous source of strength and support.
(U.S. Marine fighter jets...right here on Miramar!!)
We pass by this plane on our morning walks...there are 3 of them. They are actual Marine fighter jets that were used in WWII and have been retired right here on Miramar. They are not as big as you might expect but you can tell...they are mean fighting machines!! Even today!! I am not really into planes and things but these jets are beautiful! Streamlined and powerful...they are built to last! Tara just loves them! Maybe she thinks they are super huge toys to play with!!
(Tara with her doll Mimi...and that's the gorgeous quilt I was telling you about. I put it on the bed to make things more homey!!)
The biggest surprise has been how much Tara has grown these past few months ...The pic above was taken a few days ago and...hasn't she just sprouted up? She is sooooo tall now and developing new mannerisms every day. I hardly ever see the little baby in her anymore...only every now and then when she's just about to fall asleep. For the most part, she's a little girl... in full blown terrible two's mode at that!! Her very newest thing is throwing herself on the floor when she doesn't get her way!! I think once we settle down and she's back to her routine...she will stop this very annoying habit. Okay!! I hear some of you chuckling over there but...that's my hope anyway:) Oh! and that cute little flower headband lasted about a full minute on her head before it was ripped out and thrown on the floor!! Overall though, she has handled this very difficult period of transition remarkably well. I am very proud of her.
Well...goodbye Miramar and this period of our lives...thank you for taking such good care of us.
*Hopefully we will have the Internet hooked up at our new place soon so I can be back to blogging :) Please check back soon...I just can't wait to show you our backyard-it's just crazy beautiful..did I mention there are rosebushes?
