A post of randoms

I'm at my mom's house this morning, so I'm able to blog and use the Internet for a bit. It feels good to be back in the land of the living. We have been at our new house for close to two weeks and it still doesn't quite feel like home. Instead I feel like I'm living in a stranger's house, or a hotel. We are all unpacked, well except for a few things in the garage. But now we have a host of things we would like to do to fix up the house. Nothing needs to be done right now, but if  you know my husband and I at all, you know we like to have everything put away in it's place and complete right away. We are going to have to give that up in order to just relax a bit and enjoy life at our new home. When I was a child, I had a picture in my room that said, "Home is where the heart is", I'm working really hard on that being the case here, but I miss the "normal" and I'm struggling a bit with the change. The girls on the other hand seem to be doing great with the change and move, which is a blessing.

Speaking of the girls, yesterday they got a day with Grandma and my younger siblings so that way I could go with Chris to the big city, get my hair cut, do some shopping, and just have a date day with him. It was wonderful and the girls had a great time with all their aunts/uncle from my side of the family.

Obligatory cell phone pic of my new haircut. This is the shortest it has been in years!

Tomorrow is a big day for me, I am attending my 10 year high school reunion. It is hard to believe it has been 10 years, but it really has. I feel like SO much has happened in my life in 10 years. I graduated from college, married Chris, had three babies, amongst everything else in my life. Sometimes I feel years older then many of my fellow classmates who are just now getting married or just starting having a family. I wouldn't trade it for anything else in the world though and I am truly looking forward to tomorrow and reconnecting with many of my classmates.

Now I'm off to enjoy the rest of today and get ready for tomorrow. Enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Yah for a cities date!!!
    To be honest, even after 2 full years I still struggle to find that I LOVE our new home. The first year I just didn't feel it, I'm sure a lot of it had to do with super crappy neighbors. Since they have moved out, I am feeling more "at home." It takes time and that's ok :)
    Happy reunion weekend.

    1. I'm thinking right now it is just because we haven't set everything up and with no internet, I feel completely out of what is going on in the world. I'm sure, with time, it will get better! Thank you for sharing! :)
