Ramble Ramble

Some ramblings...

People are really nice and friendly down here. Way nicer than us Yankees. This has caused me to rethink how I act and talk. We all know I curse like a sailor. I've always say I need to watch my mouth but never do. My actions aren't so bad but I think there are a few things I need to work on. Some of the girls in my MOPS group have potential to become more than just girls from MOPS. It would be nice to have someone to go on walks with, run errands with or even go to a movie with.

My Mom (hi, Tammy!) says I sound sad when we talk on the phone. I am not sad. If anything, I feel a bit guilty because I'm really starting to like Texas. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being this place is the bomb diggity, I would say I give it a 7. Of course, I miss my family and friends but I don't miss Ohio and it's bipolar weather. I miss the ability to see my best friend and her mom (hi, Kari!) whenever I want and I miss being able to pick Will up and have him give me a big hug. I miss Cora doing my makeup. The very thought of those acts makes me throat tighten up with emotion. I kept telling myself I miss them more than they miss me. It helps the ache die down some. But the weather is amazing here and there is so much to do and see that it makes missing home a little less severe. But over the next 5 months, we will be doing lots of traveling to see our folks from up north so that makes my heart happy.

I really love my husband. He has been so supportive of me staying home. There was talk about me taking on a part time job for NH that I could do from home but after much talk, J and I decided it's best for me to wait on getting back to work. Sure the extra income would be nice but it's really important to me to get out and meet people. Even more so, I want to be able to focus on Connor and our time together. Sooner than I like to think, he is going to be heading to preschool and I will wish and want the days back when he was little and depended on me for everything. 

Life is good. Sure, it's far from perfect but overall, I can't complain. I'm meeting people, I get to visit with some of my favorite folks next month and I get to spend my days with this guy.


  1. AH I am dying at how cute your little boy is! Plus, that onesie is adorable!

  2. I'm glad you are enjoying TX and that you are also enjoying being a SAHM. I wish that had been an option for me though I don't think I would be a very good SAHM.

  3. We miss you lots, but my heart doesn't ache knowing you're OK sissy

  4. THAT is an ADORABLE picture! Those eyes! So sweet.

  5. He is so delicious! And I could've written this exact post. Except my Texas is Ohio. And I moved from NJ. lol. I curse like a sailor and am pretty sure my mom's group friends aren't sure what to make of this East coast Jersey girl just yet....but Ohio is growing on me, too. Glad to see you're making friends and learning to love Texas.
