* GPS - Philip bought this just prior to our trip. (I detest maps, and I think he figured if he sent me off on a trip to Canada from here without him, I'd get lost and he'd never see me again). =)
Anyway, the GPS has been great to use around here, when we're traveling during the day without Philip. We set out to go to the Commissary today. I missed the first left "Lola" (that's the name I chose for her, I think that's the name of the GPS voice in that Robin Williams RV movie) told me to take, so she immediatley rerouted me a few streets later. While we were driving, I noticed a big green area on the GPS screen (usually showing where there is a park), so I veered from her direction to go check it out. Bummer, it turned out to be a golf course. So.. Lola steered me back in the right direction. A few minutes later, I Did find a nice playground just off of the path she was taking us on. After we played, we continued on the way that she told us and arrived safely at the Commissary! I actually feel like I could get Anywhere on my own with this thing! (Not an attainable feet for this directionally challenged girl prior to my husband's wise purchase).
* The pool here (Duh!)
* When both kids take two hour naps (at the same time!)
* Weekly housekeeping - I found out today that we have a cleaning lady coming every Thursday to clean the kitchen and bathroom, swap out our towels, strip and remake the bed, dust, etc... Pretty cool! However.... is it just me, or is it a little unprofessional to come back to your apartment and find the cleaning lady having lunch in your kitchen?? Weird..
* Baby dills (this is random, I just don't usually keep these on hand, and I decided to buy a jar of them today, and they ROCK!)
* Great deals at the Commissary - While I don't Enjoy shopping at the Commissary (here or at home.. I think they're all the same - they just have kind of a dreary, dark feeling to them), I Do love when we get great deals! The deal of the week? An 18 pack of Sprite for $2.95!
Here are a couple pictures from the fun park (it had two, two story tunnel slides!)
