Sweet Home Alabama!

Hello Faithful Followers!-
     So, not much has really happened since our last post, but we'll take that as a good thing! Tyler officially started class on Monday and has a pretty stable schedule: up at 5, PT from 6-7, home until 9, class until 11:30/12, back to class (again), then home around 4 or 5. It makes for a hectic day, but at least it's stable.. for now. While Tyler is at class, Shanonn's been practicing to be a professional housewife by keeping meals ready, cleaning house and simply finding places to put all of our "stuff" that we so lovingly packed.
Monday and Tuesday were pretty uneventful days, with Tyler in class all day and Shanonn unpacking. Wednesday night we had a meeting for the FRG (Family Readiness Group) that basically was just telling us what the group was about while we're here, how to contact "leaders" from the group, etc. It was overall a good meeting, just very long. About half-way through, the wives were separated from their husbands, so that the women could get to know each other, as would the men. In general, it was productive, but we just seem to be in a different place than most everyone else. We seem to be the only National Guard people, so we don't fit in with the seasoned pros or the newcomers either, but at least we have a support system available.
Thursday morning, Kahlua went to the vet to get her shots (luckily, they went well), soon Tyler was home for lunch for a short time, then it was back to work! Shanonn got all of the decorations organized and put near where they needed to be hung (a task later for Tyler to finish), then it was time for Kahlua's bath. Not long after, Tyler was home for the night! We both decided that dinner was going to be an eating-out adventure, so we headed into Enterprise to a small, local restaurant with some of the best barbeque and sides we've both had! After dinner, we came home, hung up some decorations, watched part of the Thunder game, then it was time for bed to do it all over again.
Today has been mildly boring- Tyler was in class all day, toured the Aviation museum on post, and finally got home at 5. Tonight we're headed to Dothan (the nearest big city) to have dinner, then maybe do a bit of window shopping. Tomorrow will hopefully be a great day because we're headed to the BEACH! More about that later though.
Thanks for keeping up with us!!
Luckily our living room doesn't look like this anymore..
