Color Me Happy

Captain America told me that he checked into his .. um..I dont' know what it's called. His unit? His brigade? I dont know. There's not really anything for him to do there. He training doesn't start until April. Anyway, his assignment today was to sweep the floor and wash a few windows, and that job was shared by him and 2 others. It took about 10 minutes, then they had the day off. If this is what his routine is for the next 3 months, and I can be there with him, I'm ALL ABOUT THAT!!!

Well, Captain America went rental house hunting today. He looked at one that was almost 2000 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, 2 stories, 2 car garage, central air, in a nice neighborhood, new school, close-ish to post, a year old, and $1050 a month. Not bad for the area. We've never rented something that expensive before, but then, the last place we rented was a 2 bedroom 4-plex. Can't really fit 7 people in a 2 bedroom 4-plex, I guess. There doing an application thingy, so we're waiting to see if we pass. I'm not sure we will. Our credit is in the tank, and our house in Chicago is going into forclosure. That CANT look good on a credit report. So keep us in your prayers. I'd really like to have a house in Texas. If this avenue doesn't work, we'll just have to try and rent from an individual, not a company. But hopefully this will work out for us :)

So how many of you watched Idol last night? Usually, I'm not big on Idol, but my family watches it, so I decided to give it a try. I think it's fun when watched in a group. Listening to my Dad laught was half the fun :) hehehe. But I must say, as I sat there and watched it, with my mom and my 2 oldest boys, and a guy called "Sexual Chocolate" auditioned, I wondered what I was getting into. Tom, the 9 year old, said "Sexual Chocolate"? "Grandma, what does Sexual mean?". LMBO! Not a converstaion I wanted to get into with my 9 year old at this point. We told him it mean that the guy was cute, and people wanted to kiss on him. Gross, he said. And he was just mortified at the bikini girl. When I tucked him into bed, he was like "I still can't believe someone came on the show in their bikini - gross!". Good for you Tom!

I'll join in praying for you to get the perfect home for you, and perhaps you can reciprocate and pray for an easy and safe delivery of #8 for us for the next week or so. :)
Thanks for more fabulous WA.
OH, and 3 words regarding American Idol, which we watched with our 9-17 yr olds - Digital Video Recorder (DVR). We still saw a little of it unfortunately, but were able to skip most of it.

Thanks for the wordart! I'll add you in my prayers, too. Let's hope that knowing you guys are military will help them overlook the credit. I've heard (here in AZ) that being military is like having a guarantee since the leasing agent can contact the military officials...they always know how to find you!
