Post housing [30 Apr 2007|10:19am]

My family will be PCSing there in a month and we just got our address. We'll be living in Chactaw village. Any information about this neighorhood? Does it flood real bad in the winter? Is it a nice area for kids? Any problems with the houses (like ants, bugs, etc.)? Any information would be helpful.

Rentals [09 Jun 2006|11:48am]

Could you all give some suggestions on decent apt complexes/townhomes/duplexes/condos/whatever? Relatively (w/in 10-15 min drive) close to either the post or UCCS? I'd like to keep it under $750/mo (including pet rent), downstairs, available the last two weeks of June, accepts two small-breed dogs (18 lbs. and 5 lbs.), at least 1bed with study/home office or 2 small bedrooms are fine.

I've looked here: http://www.forrent.com/search/detail.asp?site=1001660 But the major drawback is that the only units available ATM are 2nd or 3rd floor

And here: http://www.apartmentguide.com/Property/property.asp?wsv_psPropertyID=2894&partner=6223

But I've read some bad (and good.. but you know how those things are skewed) things about these two places on apartmentratings.com and I've checked springspolice.com for a general idea of a decent neighborhood- but it's all about the same on there. And I've signed up at Apartments, Etc on Academy.. but they don't seem to be working quick enough, lol.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Leaving [07 Mar 2006|12:20am]

Just wanted to say bye...

Left Carson in December and am hanging out with the relatives in TN until husband comes home in June. Then, we're off to Germany for 3 yrs. Don't guess I'll have much Ft Carson stuff to talk about...

Best of luck to all of you!

This is a very nice page. I had a question. Maybe someone can give me some input. We will be transferring to fort carson and i was wondering about an apt i found. Its called Cheyenne Crossing. In colorado springs. Is colorado springs a reasonable distance to the base?

Apt search. [07 Feb 2006|10:07pm]

Can someone recommend some affordable (<$550/mo and at least 670 sq. ft. and accepts small dogs) apartments in the area? I've been looking around online, but it always helps to ask about some firsthand experiences at these places. J, the hubby, is already there, but I'm still stuck here in AR because of various issues, lol. Anyway, he looked at Eagleview, Berkshire and Village East today. How is Eagleview? He said it was decent and nicer on the inside than he imagined it would be, but I'm still a bit skeptical.

Any help is appreciated :)

We have a BIG issue come up today.... [14 Jan 2006|05:31pm]

I think I am insane. I got a call from Steven today! <3 And it was a great call. Except that he said he "for reals" wants to get married. I am sure I should trust him, but there is this really loud voice in the back of my head that says it's just for the money. Which may sound insane, but we broke up when he deployed because he didn't feel like I should be held back when was gone. And we didn't think we were really serious enough to stay together. But I still feel like we are together and so does he and today he told me I love you for the first time since we "broke up". But I mean he can't be serious about getting married when we aren't even techinically dating right now.... But I really really really love the idea. He was saying we should just get married legally while he's on R&R but then have the family wedding when he gets back from deployment. But I can't get married without my family. No one! 'Cause I'd be in FL, and I literally no none there except for him. I don't want it to be like that, I wouldn't even have friends there.... Am I way over-reacting? I mean he has joked and joked in the past about getting a contract marriage, and I always thought he was messing with me, because he knows I react so big to the whole idea, 'cause I take marriage seriously. But today he said he honestly wanted to get married. But how do I know he's just not wanting the money of marriage. Oh I hate this, I do know he loves me, even if he just finally said it again today, but marriage? I know this is my own issue to consider, but what do you guys think? Am I being insane? I wish I didn't doubt this. I wish I knew it was absolutely for reals, and it's probably just my own issues making me doubt it. Ok, I have babbled on long enough, but please let me know what you think.... Am I over-reacting to getting legally married on R&R and a real marriage after deployment? OK.... Thanks guys... <3

So I have a question for all the folks here, it seems kinda silly, but I am sending a tie-knot fleece blanket that I am going to make to Steven, and I was wondering what his bedding is. Is it desert camo? Regular? Or nothing of the like? The fleece I am going to buy is regular colored camo on one piece, and a camel/beige colored other piece.... Am I crazy for worrying about stuff like that? I know some of my girlfriends have sent their husbands wild colored or bizarre printed blankets but I really think this is something Steven would like more.... Anyways, if anyone knows let me know, I would really really appreciate it.

I got to talk to Steven on the phone today, it was the longest convo we've had since he left, he called at 9:18am and we talkted till basically 10am. I am SO happy! I may go see him on leave, I feel even stronger about it now, cause when I mentioned it to him he seemed to really really like the idea, . He def. wasn't so distant talking this time, his letters and this phone call have been so much more what he was like before he left.... Ok well I gotta jet, but thanks for listening. Ok, thanks guys!!!! <3

[ mood | happier ]

Woo! I got my second real letter from Steven, it arrived yesterday... But I was so busy with the Halloween goings-ons that I didn't check the mail till today. But it is so good to get the letter, especially considering yesterday I was so down. I missed TWO of his attempts to call. the first time I missed his call I wasn't terribly upset because I missed it for a valid reason, I was in a job interview, but the second time he called was sometime between my walk outta the office to my jeep, and that one got to me, cause the only reason I missed it was because I hadn't turned my ringer on. And I just hadn't heard fro him in so long, and the voicemail he left was so sad, I cried all the way home, praying that he would call just one more time.... But I feel better today since I got a letter, and I got a long e-mail off to him last night.... Anyways, on to the letter....
Steven's 2nd letterCollapse )

And he had drawn a cute lil' pumpkin on the back. <3 I really want to see him on leave, but obviously he's going to go to FL where all his family is. And I am going to be working and going to school during his leave, but I am thinking if I plan ahead enough and can maybe find cheap enough tickets, I'd fly down there for a long weekend, take a Friday & Monday off and see him. Does anyone know any way to possibly find cheaper tickets, or any ways to pull strings, or heart strings to find flights? Anyways, I have rattled on enough, I will let you guys go on with your lives.... Thanks you reading guys. <3

Question... [26 Oct 2005|09:50am]

I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a thrift store on post. I've seen it written on the signs that point to the PX and such, but have never been able to find it. If there is one, do they do consignments?
I'm about to move again and I have some furniture I'd like to sell.
Thanks in advance!

Proving G-d exsists [21 Oct 2005|10:52am]

Proving that G-D EXISTS
There are two things Navy Seals are always taught:
1. Keep your priorities in order.
2. Know when to act without hesitation.
A college professor, avowed atheist & active member of the A.C.L.U. was teaching his college class. He shocked several of his students when he flatly stated that once and for all he was going to prove that there was no G-d.
Addressing the ceiling he shouted: "G-D, if you are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform. I'll give you exactly 15 minutes!!!!!" The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop. Ten minutes went by.
"I'm waiting G-d, if you're real, knock me off this platform!!!" Again after four minutes, the professor taunted God saying, "Here I am, G-d-!! I'm still waiting!!!" He counted down to the last couple minutes when a Navy Seal, who
was just released from the Navy, after serving in Afghanistan & Iraq & had newly registered for the class, walked up to the Professor. The Seal hit him full force in the face. This sent the Professor tumbling from his platform. The Professor was out cold. The students were stunned and shocked. They began to babble in confusion. The Seal nonchalantly took his seat in the front row and sat in silence. The class looked at him and fell silent also waiting. Eventually, the professor came to and was noticeably shaken. He looked at the Seal in the front row. When the professor regained his senses and could speak, he asked: "What the heck is the matter with you? Why did you do that?" The Seal said, "G-d was really busy, protecting America's soldiers, who are protecting your right to say stupid things and act like an
ass. So, he sent me."

Good Morning ladies! [21 Aug 2005|12:25pm]

[ mood | sleepy ]

Hey I just wanted to see what everyone is up to. So far today has been a BLAH day and I just want to sleep. I think I am going to a Pampered Chef party later today. If any one wants to come you can follow me. If not I think we need to do a movie night again on Wednesday. We can have it at my house again. Any one up for that?

So as I said ages ago my baby is In the 3d ACR, and over in Iraq. I've been sending him letters and they've all been returned. It says it needs a company. But I don't know what his company is...

I know a couple of your guys are over there so if you can help me out at all that would be great!!

And I'm sorry for not being very active, I just don't really feel like a part of the group since I live up in Denver.
