New Norm

I knew we'd love living close to Kari and Jonathan and getting the kids together, but I had no idea!  The first week we got together every day, but then she and her husband went and had their "wedding anniversary" and "wanted to celebrate" and have a "tradition" to go to Denver... and I seriously was so bummed!  Not only did I not get to hang out, I didn't even call her because she was obviously spending time with family!  Ridiculous, right? But I'm glad it's the new normal for us, it's been even better than I expected.

Tonight Joe's working his first night shift at the distribution center, so we'll see what THAT new normal feels like... I know it'll have some downfalls, but I'm really looking forward to some o the perks! For one, I get the computer all to myself while he's gone :)  Blogger, emails, netflix, it's aaaaallllll mine!  I also plan on taking that time to work on some crafts - possibly unpacking some scrapbooking stuff, but also getting started knitting that baby blanket I've been musing about.  I always told him at Whiting-Turner that if he worked late I wanted him to work LATE so I'd at least have the evening to myself, and now I got my wish with Target!  Ahhh, the reasons I love the new job just keep racking up.

Now that we're here, our new normal means of communication is cell phones, and of course we have a new (temporary) address, so I'm emailing that out - please let me know if I missed you on my contact list!  My email is the same is always, of course, and I still get on facebook once in a blue moon so you can reach me there.  Or just leave a comment here!  I love comments :)

So glad you are having a great time with your sister! Good luck with the coupons. I wanted to tell you that I made one of your What's for dinner frames for my kitchen. I'll have to send you a picture. It's great.

I'm so glad that you were bummed when we went to Denver! Sometimes I feel like I'm overbearing, so good to know that I'm not :). Hopefully we'll see you in the morning. (I called tonight and you didn't answer)
