One more solemn post

Why it is better than it was a few days ago:
  • R is starting bar review classes tomorrow
  • I bought 2 new pairs of capris, and (gasp) a pair of shorts
  • M has his new brown sandals (thanks to generous grandparents :))
  • M has been taking 12-hour nights and 3-hour naps: a better schedule than MI!
  • I'm going to the Medicaid office today to apply
  • I'm calling around for a car repair place to replace our back tires
  • I just need a Wal-mart* trip for groceries and hangers (to make me feel super-duper accomplished)
  • Jess took some amazing pics of M (and even a couple of M and me together), that shall be posted forthwith
  • M liked the nursery in a new ward
  • M went to the gym's day care today for 45 minutes without crying too hard for too long
So it's looking up my friends. I feel like I can just take this one day at a time and eventually settle into loving my new surroundings. (It helps to speculate with R about returning to MI with our kiddos someday for a football game, some cider mill adventuring, and even a trip down to Cedar Point.) (It also helps to think that come November of this year, we won't be gearing up for 5 months of winter. Sorry Ann Arborites :)) So, catch-22.

*Although I have a bit of a moral dilemma when it comes to evil Wal-mart it is overshadowed by our lack of fundage.

Now that you're in Arizonia, you can be in my book club if you want. We just started.

When you and Ryan have some time, I think it would be fun to catch up. Maybe we could get Jill Marks to play too (since she also lives here).

It's just a thought. Let me know what you think.

We're starting with Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Are you on facebook? If you aren't you should join. That's where all the info for the club is. But, I can keep you posted through blogging if you want.
