My top priority in the three-ish months I was in Amman between home leave and returning to the U.S. on Medevac was getting the nursery set up for baby. We transformed what was our my home office into the perfect space for Piopio.
Our floor didn’t really cave in. Catchy headline, though, right? Remember how I was all proud of unpacking our thousands of pounds of belongings within like, a week of getting everything? Well, turns out I spoke to soon. Because our floor exploded.
Our virtual apartment tour comes to an end with a look at our final room: the master bedroom. By far the biggest highlight of our stuff arriving was having our own bed — especially our super-comfy pillow-top mattress.
I really love my home office. After a year of working from a desk that shared space with our living room and dining room, it’s nice to have my own space again.
Today on my virtual apartment tour we’re taking a look at our guest bedroom. It’s fitting because this week we’re hosting our first visitor to Amman: our friend Lisa, whom we met in Afghanistan.

Our virtual Amman apartment tour continues today with our dining room and kitchen. You caught some glimpses of the dining room in our look at our foyer and living room.
We are 100 percent moved in. Our Kabul HHE, San Salvador/storage HHE and Virginia UAB shipments arrived, along with our car. All 101 boxes totaling 4,230 pounds are unpacked. Our clothes and linens are dry-cleaned, our photos are displayed and our artwork is hanging on the walls.
Kail and I arrived to Amman last week.

Our living room.Better late than never, right? So I had intended to post a “before and after” tour of our Kabul home — like I did for our apartment in San Salvador — much earlier. Like, before we reached the halfway point of our tour.
