About Me

I am an Air Force wife and mother of three precious gifts from God. I enjoy learning at home with my children, and the many adventures this life sends our way. So stop by often to visit, and check out what the Five Nomads are up to.

I just can't wait to get on the road again. . .

Seriously, I can't. . .because we are only a little over 300 miles from our new home. After two 500+ days, this is going to be a breeze (I hope I don't jinx us. . .but then again, I don't believe in that stuff so I guess we'll be okay. :)
The drive has gone pretty smoothly. With only a few hiccups along the way. Bubby met his first bee that didn't like him, poor little guy. Fortunately he is not allergic (nothing like looking up ER's in a strange city, just in case you need to get there. . . FAST!) And, Princess picked up the crud the cadets were hacking up at the Air Force Academy on Sunday. (I guess hand sanitizer immediately after mass wasn't enough.) She has had a sore throat and low grade fever. I was worried she might have strep, but yesterday she started with a runny nose. So I think it is just a cold. Which is another great motivator to get to our new home base. I do not like messing around with strep.
Other than that, our trip has gone very smoothly. We were able to check out the Great Salt Lake (stay tuned for this post when we get settled), and today we are driving along the Colombia River in Oregon. I've never been this way, so I'm looking forward to experiencing something new. I am actually quite amazed that we aren't going crazy after this many miles. It is surprisingly enjoyable to see our country, to take in the beauty, and ponder what the people that live there are like.
The shower stopped. It's my turn. Gotta run, I need to get this party started. . .because the next time I post, I'll be in Washington!!!!! Sleeping in my own house (so we won't have our things for a few days) camping out.
Oh, and I forgot to mention the painting. We are hoping to paint as much as possible before the movers come with our stuff on Monday. We're starting off with Tinker Bell Green in Princess's room. Wish me luck!


  1. You are so durn lucky, Tami!! I'd love to be able to travel! But at least I've got a friend like you who I can live vicariously through. I still can't believe we didn't meet up while you were in Oklahoma! I LOVE the Wichita Mountain area - we should have met you guys there for a day. Ah well, maybe I'll just have to come to Washington for a visit. :D

    Tinkerbell green sounds like my kind of color!! Hope you'll post pictures of the finished product.

  2. I hope you had a chance to check out the Multnomah Falls on the Columbia! It's worth the stop to stretch your legs!

  3. How cozy is camping in your new home!! You are going to be crazy busy for a couple of weeks! Get that girl some emergen-C look for it in the vitamin isle, in fact C everyone, you don't need to be down and out when you have so much nesting to be done. I am so so excited for you. FYI I'm searching for white enamel ware for decor for Dads party. R2 has is wife started on the taco meat. I'm (we both know that means I'm supervising) starting on cookies and bars in the morning. Oh wait it is morning, My Grace just arrived home from an evening of fellowship so I can hit the hay. Hey I watched the meteor shower last night, so cool!
