Wow. I don't even think I've looked at this thing since last May. Since then, I spent half my summer with the girls. We went to Mesa Verde and Yellowstone. We went to Lagoon. We watched some TV. You know, the usual.
And now another school year has begun. This year, the school feels much better than it did last. I feel more put together. I feel more conscious and purposeful in this whirlwind of a career I have.
Today, the Mister's grandparents are moving out. Almost a year ago, we moved in with them so we could be closer to the girls. And now, they're moving to their daughter's house in Texas. This is a bittersweet thing. They have taken such good care of us. They welcomed us in. They fed us. And they loved us. I feel particularly attached to his grandfather. He's such a good man.
So when I get home today, we will have the house to ourselves. We will be there temporarily, but even so I can begin to decorate and organize it the way I'd like. And the thought of that makes me just a bit giddy. I feel so grateful. Life is good.
I'll try to hang around these parts a bit more, ok?
