So here's the deal: This morning I started writing a post about what's happening with us lately. But about half an hour into writing I was exhausted. There's so much to say. There's way too many words to edit, and it's definitely an emotionally loaded topic. I realized that mostly what I wanted to do is say hello and check in with all of you, and to somehow break the ice again with this blogging thing. Here's the quick version of what has been going on with details to come when I have the energy.
In May Nate lost his job.
Three weeks later he accepted a new job (thank goodness!).
We rented out our house in Pocatello.
We packed up our belongings and put a lot of them in my dad's shop in Burley.
We moved into a two bedroom apartment.
We live in Oregon now.
I have not been happy about any part of this.
Wait. Except for the part where Nate quickly got a new job. I was happy about that.
But the rest of it? No. Heartbroken would be a better word for it.
See what I mean about emotionally loaded? I mean, I started writing this post as a shortened version and it is still taking me forever! I miss Pocatello fiercely, but I'm doing my best to make this our new home. Sometimes I succeed.
On a happy note we'll be welcoming a new baby into our family in a few short weeks! See?
Per a dear friend's request, photographic evidence that I am indeed having a baby. Of course this picture was taken in July but let's just pretend this is still what I look like, okay? Okay.
Also, see that large body of water behind us? That's the ocean. Our new home is about 40 minutes away from the coast which apparently a lot of people are into. So, you know, there's that.
Okay so, this has been fun! Writing a blog again that is. Please take a second to say hello if you're still here and thanks for your emails and facebook notes reminding me exactly why I write on this silly little space. You dudes are the best.
