still alive, and kicking

It's bullet time:

  • Brad got a job!!!  And so we moved.
  • WA is very different from AZ (obviously).  For the most part, I'm loving the changing seasons.  But sometimes, I hate it...
  • Three kids is hard.  Two wasn't too bad, and at the time I wondered what everyone else was complaining about.  But three?  Three is rough.
  • Currently planning on homeschooling.  I might be crazy.
  • My milk is gone.  It always starts disappearing around six months and it's a struggle to maintain.  We were down to one nursing session a night, and then I got sick.  So my milk left me, which means I have my body back to myself.  I have mixed feelings.
  • I am so tired of condo/apartment living.  Steadily dreaming of having a home/farm of my own.
  • Got a minivan right before we moved.  The husband got into a car accident shortly after we moved.  He's fine, the car was not.  So...  We got a "new" car!  Not a minivan.
  • All this cold weather has me on house arrest.  Good thing I'm such a homebody!
  • All this cold weather makes me want to craft.  So I've been crocheting up a storm.  We actually get to use hats, scarves, and blankets here.  Huzzah!  So lots of warm and yummy yarn-work   And then my wrists started bothering me, so I've switched to cross-stitching until further notice.
  • I am officially hooked on Doctor Who and have embraced my inner nerd with open arms.  Allons-y!
  • Am I the ONLY person who finds chevron prints and the color gray totally overrated???  I prefer Cath Kidston, and color.  Neutral is for the birds!
  • I would really like to get back to blogging.  I really wish I had a better camera, because posting without pictures is super lame.
  • Currently growing my hair out.  I might be crazy.
Cheers!  *B
