The week before we moved across the country Jeff and I, and our good friends, Seve and Jules, went camping near Mesa Falls.
The next morning we went to the Falls.
Jules' baby is due soon, and we are sad to miss meeting him! Good luck with moving and growing your family!
I was lucky enough to have my parents and sister visit us a few days before we moved. We all went all through Yellowstone, and the Tetons. It was awesome.
Then Jeff and I tried to make it a fun trip back home, which was an adventure.
Lot's of pictures on the way of our trip with my family, the road trip home...and maybe of the new place (my parents' basement, which I think we will affectionately call The Pool House) if I can ever get unpacked. Who on earth knew you could get sick of cleaning and cleaning and packing and unpacking after doing it so many times? Before we moved, my office moved (which was a two month ordeal on its own). We are crossing our fingers that the next place we move will be for a longer period of time. I like change, but I think I'm ready for instead of an address change, it just be a picture frame.
I'm also free from my previous job! I will miss it, but I was ready to be done. So what does this mean, other than little money? (well not that I made much in the first place)....I can make money doing other things! I was restrained by being a VISTA to not have any other income, but not any more! Nope, I can do whatever I want! And I'm ready...Now all we need is for Jeff to find a job. (Keep him in your prayers).
It's a good feeling being home. I think Jeff is stressed with the job search, but we know things will come together. Just, hopefully sooner than later.
Seeing old friends, holding my baby nephew, swimming in my childhood pool, walking on my old horse trails, and feeling the always sticky Ohio air has given me a new wave of contentment. I have a sweet loving husband, and loyal and cute as all get-out dog, and to be where our roots are makes everything okay.
better than okay
