I have to admit, I really don’t have much to say. I am exhausted. We are still unpacking boxes and rearranging our things. It feels like we are never going to be done. I thought we had done a really good job of downsizing when we moved, but we have very little storage in our apartment and we have SO MUCH STUFF. We have plenty of storage in the basement so unfortunately most of our things have ended up there (including all of my craft bins…argh!). Our closet space felt tight before- the funny thing is that it’s literally been cut in half in this place. I have had to get even more creative with how things are stored and less emotional about what stays and what goes. I am annoyed and just want to be done already.
So far one thing that I have noticed is that that the days start early on this part of the country. By around 4:45 am the sun is starting braking through, and by 5:30 am the sun is totally out and day has begun. The days feels like it last forever. By 5:30 pm the sky starts to turn gray again, almost like when it’s going to rain, but it doesn’t. I am not a morning person and since I am still on Idaho (Mountain Time) the loss of those two hours really hurts. Today, I finally got around to putting curtains up, so I really hope this helps everyone sleep a little bit better. My parents left two days ago so now that things are starting to quiet down, I am really starting to realize how much we have to adjust to the new area. Brandon is getting ready for his first day of work as we speak and suddenly, the move doesn’t feel like a vacation anymore. I am nervous for him, and I just hope that he loves his new job, I hope they love him, but more than anything I just want some assurance that we didn’t make a mistake coming here.
Are we home sick yet? As much as I like to deny it…YES, I think so! Don’t get us wrong, we love it here, but if you can, definatly come visit us!
Oh, and Go Celtics! Today is the NBA finals and we are all cheering for our newly adopted basketball team.
Here are a few pictures of the kids from a couple of days ago. We have been making daily trips to the park to get their wiggles out, but they have more energy than a pack of energizer bunnies.
