New Mexico finally

SO yes we have made it to Albuquerque safe and sound! We arrived in town saturday late afternoon after a LONG day of driving from TX. We have been staying in a nice furnished 3 bd townhouse (paid for by the AF) while we have been looking for a rental. its nice here, but we are ready to be living with our own stuff again! We got the call last evening saying we were approved for the rental house which is exciting, now we hope the movers can deliver our stuff to us tomorrow so we can get settled in this weekend.
Being in such a temporary place, and not knowing what area we were going to be living in, I haven't been able to get Chloe enrolled in school yet, so we have been doing a sort of homeschooling thing all week. Thats been going fairly well, but when she's done with work she is bored so I am excited for her to go back to school next week!
Jocelyn has been doing fairly well with all this moving business, other than we have no highchair, so she eats on the fly.....major PITA :) sometimes she will sit on my lap at the table long enough to get a few bites in, but usually she is dragging food from one end of the living area to the other!
Yesterday was Earth day, and instead of sitting in the house cooped up wasting electricity i looked up so local things to do, and gave Chloe the choice between the Aquarium/Botanical Gardens, or the Zoo, and she chose the Zoo. So off we went! The Rio Grande Zoo was very nice, very big compared to Abilene's zoo. We spent around 3 hours there and didnt see everything, but Jocelyn was tired and so were my feet! Jocey did really enjoy the animals. She growled at all the *cats* really liked the seals and polar bears too!

Its down to the wire now

Well folks we have a date for the movers and a tentative date (less than 3 weeks now) for getting the heck out of Abilene....there's just one problem....the house is still not sold. So as of today we are in contact with a leasing agent, and with any luck by Monday all will be said and done so that we can get renters in here as soon as we are out.
We have been doing everything possible to get this house moved including dropping our price by over $3000. It hurts to do that, but i think this economy is just really not helping these matters. I have been so frustrated and stressed out, I have been taking it out on everyone I think, and I am sorry for that.
On another note, my baby girl is nearly 8 and we are throwing her a party at the skating rink before we leave here. Baby sister on the other hand is 18 months old tomorrow and I just cant figure out where time has gone. They grew up too fast(I know they aren't grown completely, but still).
That's really all for now, I will post new pictures sometime soon!
