I miss blogging so much for several reasons. I love getting feedback on it, yes, but also I feel like I live my most complete life when I'm sharing it. If I don't do anything quality and beautiful with my kids then I have nothing to post. Basically I'm an extremely selfish person with my time and a blog helps me be a better mom. Hey, the truth sucks, but whatever works. My kids get a better mom, so that's a win.
So we moved! I finished school, started working, and we started daydreaming about the next step. Didn't anticipate being ready to move for at least a year or two. Then daydreaming led to drives in the country, which led to showings, which led to paperwork *just in case*, which led to this house and a drive home when I put my foot down and said, "I want it...it's perfect. Give them what they want and lets do it by 8am tomorrow....this is for us." He agreed and after an agonizing morning at work I finally got the text that I needed to start packing. I screamed and started crying...at work. Not something most people want to see a nurse doing. But it was total joy. I knew this was the place for my family.
Coyotes live here, too. And there's no reason to run terrified into the house every time you hear them. Lesson two.
The neighbors horses aren't fighting....they're mating. No need to alert the neighbor. You WILL be laughed at. Lesson three.

"Does this look like a graveyard?"
"Yes....Yes it does. Yes."
We're loving the garden, and this place has flowers galore. We love that, too. We love everything here.
The cat still hates the dog.
The dog is still sure she'll come around.
So that's the update. I have a lot to do on the house before I really post pictures of it. I still don't know where half my crap is going to go so everything is randomly sitting around. Until later!...
