Life
Posted by Blessed Mom in Happenings

I’ve been so bad about keeping up with this blog lately. We’ve been busy. Life is happening. Truthfully, I’m happy about that. When we moved here the kids and I would go to Walmart or Target just so we had somewhere to go. Now we’re actually making plans, meeting people, and getting out. Here’s some of what’s going on:

* We’ve found a church! It’s definitely not what we planned on finding, but we’re enjoying it. We’re already in a home group and have met some wonderful people there. It’s small, much smaller than we thought we’d be in, but we like it. Visiting a new church every Sunday got to be too much, new people, new nurseries. We needed to find a church home, and I think we have!

* I’ve made some good friends who have kids the same ages as my kids. Today we went to the museum with a girl who has a son just a few months older than Buddy and a daughter one month younger than Baby Girl. Perfect! Saturday we went to dinner with some new friends; their oldest daughter is about 1 1/2 years older than Baby Girl, but they get along so well! (My friend is from Michigan, so I have a northern connection!) Both of these friendships came at just the right time for me.

* The weather has cooled down some. Today the high will be in the low 80s. I wore jeans Saturday for the first time since June 19th when we flew down here! I definitely did a happy dance!

Some days are still extremely hard. I miss New England. I miss fall. There are days when I get so discouraged that I just want to lay in bed all day. But I feel like we’ll make it. Don’t get me wrong; I am not a Texan yet. That will take some time, I think, but we’re putting down some roots. Right now they’re small and don’t go very deep, but we’re getting there. Every new friendship and new experience strengthens the roots just a little more.

This weekend I will be basking in fall all by myself. I am so nervous about being by myself for a weekend, but I hope it will be relaxing and allow me to come back ready to jump back into life. I can’t wait to share my adventure with you!
