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 :)
