I know you all have been on the edge of your seats, waiting & hoping I'd post something soon...
The boys & I are safely & soundly in Texas, settling in to ranch life & all that that entails. For the last few days we've been feeding the animals, & by animals I mean chickens, guineas, peacocks, alpacas, llamas, goats, & pigs, careful to avoid the dead chicken in the back of the gator that my dad FINALLY moved yesterday. We collect eggs & stir pig slop (leftovers from us- those pigs are SO spoiled!) along with all the other stuff- it's actually something I enjoy, & it gets us moving around.
The boys have also started preschool part time, which so far they really enjoy. Cody was doing so well at his preschool in Cheyenne that I didn't want him to lose momentum & Sawyer was in need of some socialization. It works out well because honestly, I need a break. I'm able to run errands by myself or come home & do housework while they're at school & I think it makes us better all around. The drive is even something I enjoy- it's 23 miles one way (10 just to get into town), but I'm getting caught up on new music that I've missed so it's exciting for me- I'm such a dork!
There are some things I miss about Cheyenne, for sure. My privacy, for one. I love being with my family but I was SO used to doing things my way that it's become a bit of a challenge to have to work around other people. We're managing pretty well though, I think. I definitely miss my friends, not having any nearby is weird & kind of lonely. Thankfully I have plenty to do to keep me busy. I miss Element, too- I haven't been to church since I left Cheyenne & I know I need to recharge there too.
On Monday I'll start back with the whole '30 things my kids should know about me' posts, that was lots of fun.
Today makes me 9 weeks pregnant & my first OB appointment is March 15. I also have an ultrasound that day so fingers crossed everything is going okay in there!
The last few weeks since I left Cheyenne have been interesting. Like I said, we're adjusting to life here & trying to get used to each other, but I'm thankful that my parents have let the boys & I come & invade their lives. I'm fairly certain, however, that when Tony finishes school & it's time for us to head to Florida, we'll be MORE than ready. :)
Have a good weekend everyone.
