I haven't written on here in forever! So I guess I better reintroduce myself, seeing as I haven't been around for while. Y'all might have forgotten me! Here goes: "Hi, I'm Courtnie and I'm addicted to moving." : D No, just kidding, not really, but from how much we have bounced around in the last 5 years, you would think so! Actually, I kind of hate moving. Lets see if I can get this right, hmmm. We were briefly in Utah after our wedding(about one week), then in West Virginia for 4 years, the in California for 1 year, Oklahoma for 2 years, then Arizona for 18 months and now we are in Mississippi. For who knows how long. Our nine year anniversary is coming up. :)
I don't dislike it here, don't get me wrong. This is a very nice area, and our house is quite lovely. People are very friendly. What I hate (remember how I mentioned that earlier?) is being unsettled. Figuring everything out all over again; Making new friends, finding new doctors, making a new routine, scoping out new activities for the kids, learning new roads and freeways, acquiring new library and store cards, new schools (or homeschool groups) . . .yada yada yada. I'm getting warn out a bit, I must admit. Add to all this 3 young kidlets and one fussy baby who likes his mama to be his taxi. Yeeaaahhh, I often don't feel like myself. Feel like I am not as good a mom as I used to be, or not as together as I used to be, or not as cheerful as I once was. But I know this phase won't last forever. Things will settle down and our days will have some semblance of routine and normalcy. But I wish it would hurry up, darn it!
Anyway, I guess I better go to bed. Sleep helps immensely. :)
