Sleeeeeeepy

Hey All

I'm sitting here in sunny El Paso.

Well, it was sunny earlier. Now it's nighttime.

Anyway, I don't know if you know this, but it's 2 hours earlier in El Paso than in Columbus. (Or, for you military folk, it's two ours earlier at Ft. Bliss than at Ft. Benning.)

So while my mind knows that it's only 7:00 p.m., my body (which got up at 2:00 a.m. local time) thinks that it's 9:00 and I forgot to feed it. Which is SO not true. The delivery guy just hasn't gotten here yet.

Anyway, all that to say, I'm going to be here for a few days looking at houses and apartments, and not blogging or commenting. Mostly total radio silence.

Poor SoldierMan is left at home to fend for himself. :) It's not that bad, but this is the first time I've been the one leaving and he's been the one left behind for a few days. I know how monotonous that can get.

And when I return, hopefully A) we will be in talks for a house/apartment and B) I will have an announcement to make. Don't get excited, it's nothing life-changing. Well, it may be, actually. We'll see.

I'll leave you with a shot of my first glimpse of El Paso.

In the words of Annie, "I think I'm gonna like it here."

  1. Good luck with life there. I liked it a lot for the year we were there, and right near the end disliked it a bunch too. Just watch out for the sand storms and expect power outages and you will be all set. We had 1-2 outages a week in the summer, but we were also linked with the post power grid, so you might not have as much power outages. And also, find a place with central air, not the swamp coolers.

  7. Hey Jaci! I was only in El Paso visiting for a couple months when my husband was in BOLC but I think you will like El Paso too. Advice: Stay away from apartments by the name of Warren. Those are in the sketchy part of town. Avila's Restaurant has the BEST Mexican and Carlos and Mickeys ( right off post) has the BEST Margaritas!! They get packed out at night. Have a nice day! :)
