Soon I will have more time to blog. Soon I will stop being sucked into FarmVille, FrontierVille or CafeWorld on Facebook. Soon Abigael will stop getting into markers, chapstick and the refrigerator. Soon Rick will have a job instead of having to report to WorkForce in Bellingham. Soon we won't have to rely on TANF to get by. Soon our car will probably die completely. Soon I will pull myself away from my computer long enough to get lost in a good book again (any suggestions?!), or to start crocheting again!
We finally made the move we've been dreaming of. We finally live in Washington, on the Canadian border, to be exact. We finally have rain and moisture instead of sun and dry skin. We finally sigh of contentment instead of frustration. Our girls finally have friends. I finally get to cook at sea level instead of trying to adjust my baking to high altitude. Finally my cookies don't burn on the bottom! :o) Finally we are settled, even without employment. Finally Abigael gets to have her momma to herself, just like her older sisters had. For now our car runs, and for that we are blessed!
We have been so amazingly blessed in our new home. Blaine and its inhabitants have welcomed us so warmly! I don't think I've ever been told, "We are SO glad to have you here!" by so many people, let alone people we have never met! We have lived here just over a month and we've already met 6 of our 11 neighbors, an amazing feat in itself! :o) We have WILLINGLY walked more in the last month then (I think) in our adult lives. We have discovered a love for libraries; not only for books, but for work searches and movies. :o) It has only been a month, and I can't wait to see what life has in store for us!
Happy Halloween!!! 2011
