Government Issued Housing: 10 Texastrasse Apt. 3

This past month has flown by and where do I start? I have up uploaded some pics of our crib or otherwise known as Government Issued Housing. We live in Hannierberg Housing about ten minutes from Army Garrison Airfield (aka Brandon's place of work, post, Jana's Fitness Facility). We are just down the street from the Commisary and PX.

Here is a pic of our apartment. We live on the the second floor to the left.

A typical day for us? We really do not have a set schedule. The first week I was here, Brandon would get up at 5:40, go to PT, come home at 7:45, eat breakfast and leave for work. I was blessed in having him come home each day for lunch. After lunch, he would go back to work, formation at 4:45 and home by 5:00. Pick me up to go workout at the fitness facility. Come home, eat dinner, go to sleep. Pretty sweet schedule? Lasted a week.

The following three weeks Brandon started working till 7:00 and the 9 or 10 a few nights a week. He found out last minute he would be working Saturdays. I would love to share with you what he has been doing at work, but I can not.

I have been keeping myself busy doing random things. Study for my German drivers license, walk Bailey, workout, finding my way around post and cooking. I have applied at the local elementary school to substitute teach when school begins. I find myself going through the motions adjusting to this new lifestyle. This is my first time being exposed to the Army life and all it entails. The best part of my life is being with Brandon. It has been very lonely, as I am use to having a social life right away. This has given me a lot of time to talk to God and listen to many Podcasts on my Ipod. I cherish the time I do have with Brandon, because time together will be changing in the months to come.

Brandon leaves for his WLC class August 25. He will be there for a month and then straight to the Field for a few weeks. He will be gone about seven weeks. I will get to see him on the last day of his WLC for his graduation. Please keep us both in your prayers in the short time we have together.

On Wednesday, our first shipment will be arriving. Primarily our wedding gifts, dishes, bakeware, towels, etc. I am so excited!!!!!

When I first came to our apartment, Brandon referred to the second bedroom as "his room". This lasted a few days.


  1. I am so glad you posted, Jana! How fun to see your apartment! I hope you are having fun adjusting to Army life. I talked to Emily's mom and she says that Emily may be going to Germany! That would be amazing if that actually happened :) But... you know how things are, nothing for sure yet! We love you and miss you here in the States!!!

  2. I'm so happy you are getting your things soon. I'm sure you'll have that crib turned into a cozy home n no time.
