We got our phones in today...SO happy about that. Service is sketchy, but it's better than not having a phone! Our Internet has been in and out also, thankfully it is working tonight lol. Anthony went to hang out with the boys, they are having Poker Night at one of the local officer's house. We are starting to settle in here - and our house is starting to look like a home. I DO love the weather...so much warmer than Fairbanks. My hair loves the weather too...my curls are making a come-back. :) I will post pictures of the house once we finish setting it up. I have to buy curtains for all my windows at some point...turns out finding curtains that arn't almost 90" long is proving difficult...ridiculous. I should know something about the job I interviewed for by the end of the week...and I am looking into some different options too. Anyway, I'm back online so give me a call!!

This morning we slept in, then for breakfast I made some tasty french toast, eggs and bacon. Then we decided to get presentable lol...
We spent a large portion of the day at DOT cleaning out Anthony's new patrol veh...it was so bad it really just needed to be torched.

...windy...cut-off....why can't it look like Homer......
So everyone here keeps asking me what I think....and I honestly have to say I don't know yet. It's not exactly what I expected, that's for sure. I think it will be really pretty in the summer. You can see the ocean from the road leading to our house. There are two smallish local stores that charge you an arm, leg and possibly a liver depending on what you want. On the up side, it is much warmer than Fairbanks.
I am trying REALLY hard to have a good attitude and not decide that I hate it here. Anthony is super excited so it is important to keep an open mind. I DO have an interview on Friday afternoon for the position at AST. I have met most of the guys here and we seem to have a good group.
The movers will be here to move us into our house on Friday morning. It will be nice to get settled down...and have our stuff. We are staying in a little furnished bed and breakfast right now...it's called Caribou Cabin. There is a flat screen w/dish network...Anthony is happily watching the sports channel lol.
I'm proud to say I kept the water works at bay through all the goodbyes...up until last night. Yesterday was a really long day. We only managed to get about 4 hrs of sleep on our last night there, then we got up, finished getting packed and headed to the airport. Jenni met us there for a quick goodbye and we were on our way. We spent all morning flying then arrived in Dillingham with no cell reception. As you can guess, we were REALLY unhappy. After stopping by post and picking up a veh we headed to our new place to do a walk-through. All of the appliances were decrepit and that was a big issue. I'm glad to report that as of today they have all been replaced. Then we spend hrs on the phone ironing out issues like GCI and dealing with the movers.
I will post pictures as soon as possible. And hopefully soon I will have a working phone again.
Will post more later...hope everyone is doing well!

We arrived safely in Dillingham late this morning. The phones that GCI told us would work "great" out here don't work. So we are officially cut off from the ENTIRE world...I just happened to steal a few moments on a computer at the office. We are working on having new phones shipped to us as soon as possible....will update more later when I have a chance!

Rox is an awesome girl...if she's around your sure to have a good time. :) We were there for each other at work...not sure what I would have done without her...love ya Rox!

Well, we are leaving on Tuesday morning...and I'm still trying to figure out what I'm gonna do without my chub. She's my girl...we're pretty much best friends by now. I tried to convince Ang and Josh to move to Dillingham, but that didn't really work out. So...my plan is to steal her and just see how far I get. :)

The wise words of one Anthony Wiles. :)
I woke up to roses and chocolates this morning...what a sweet hubby...
We brought mom a special delivery at work today...a variety of goodies she can have on her diet. We love mom :)
Had a good day with Anthony...we went to the gym, had some monkey bread, saw a movie....and of course, had a nice dinner at Lavelle's. I love my husband!

and now my house is bare. It actually went a lot better than I thought it would...took about 8 hrs. We had Baileys scheduled to drop off our new furniture (which we ordered in Dec) mid morning. They called me about an hr after they were supposed to show up and said there was a problem...Anchorage had sent the wrong love seat. They said it was now on back order and that they would have it for me in about a month and a half...well...we had words. Lots of words. We got it all figured out though...and besides that, it was a really smooth move! Today we have more packing, cleaning and errands to run. Anthony is at Grand Jury right now and I'm supposed to be at the store lol...so I'd better get on it.

We are headed to Dillingham two weeks from today. Movers come first thing in the morning tomorow, so we get to live out of suitcases for the next two weeks. Oh well, this whole move will be an experiance. I'm off to do more packing...
