Guam Life

I'm enjoying Guam life. The weather is awesome. It rains a lot but we are in typhoon season so that is to be expected. I am finding lots of new creatures. Geckos, frogs, jelly fish, and sea cucumbers just to name a few. The ocean water is nice. It's warm but not hot. I haven't spent much time at the beach but plan to make more trips soon. I am looking for a job but it's not turning out so good. I gave my name to the man at fleet and family and he is going to call me to set up an appt. with him to see if we can find me a job. I am learning how to drive Chris' truck (it's stick shift). It's frustrating and I don't like it. But I'm starting to get the hang of it. I have taken Chris to work 3 days now. So I'm getting my practice. Chris is leaving on Thursday to go out on the ship. He will be gone approx. 2 months. I'm scared that I will get really lonely. I wish someone could come out and see me while he is gone. The other wives tell me that they will keep me busy and hang out with me to keep me company but I just don't know if it will help much. I'm trying to make friends but it's not easy. None of our stuff is here so that has been hard. Our ship date isn't until Aug 10th and then we have to wait for it to get here. I'm missing my crafting stuff a lot. I think I may take up gardening until our stuff gets here. I have also discovered my love for cooking since I have been here. I haven't gotten too creative because I don't have any of my stuff but what I have been able to do has got me hooked. I discovered my love for baking about 2 years ago but never knew I loved to cook as well. That's all I have for now. I promise to update more often.

The difference was I had all of you only a drive away when I got lonely... I'm trying. It seems like every Sunday something comes up and I can't go to church. Plus I haven't found one I like yet but I am trying. Thank Cathy I love you too! I couldn't ask for a better MIL!
