So things are starting to move finally! We are getting our medical clearances done and should be finished with them by next week. So cross your fingers for us that we all pass! We've also been working on getting the cats ready for the move. luckily for them, they've had most of the shots that they need. So they'll only have to get a rabies booster and some bloodwork.
We found out yesterday that base housing doesn't allow yard sales! I thought they were joking! It's a military community! People are always moving in and out. Apparently they only allow community wide sales. They held one March 15th, but we didn't get orders until March 21st so we didn't know we'd need to do a moving sale at that time! UGH! So now I'm trying to figure out what to do with all this extra stuff!!
Bennet and I got our first JEV shots yesterday (Japanese Encephalitis Vaccine). I made the mistake of looking up the vaccine before we got it. Apparently it's made by infecting mice with the disease, then extracting and liquefying their brains! Sick, huh? So we got our mouse brain shots yesterday and we go back agian next monday and then one more time at the end of April.
We also bought a car last night. Tim needs a car to get to Los Angeles and the right one came along finally. It's a 1992 Mercedes Benz 300E-class (I think). It's in good condition on the outside and decent condition on the inside. Tim is pretty excited about it, and I can rest easy knowing that it won't break down on his way cross country! We've decided to name her Mrs. Buffy Wellington. Here she is:
