How much fun...We just had dinner with our good friend and family member (he's Danny's step brother in law!) Josh. He's a pilot for Sky West and he had a layover tonight in Abq, so we met up with him for dinner. It was so nice to have a familiar face around, even if it was just for a couple of hours. Thanks for thinking of us, Josh, and putting up with our rowdy bunch for dinner!
In other news...I am feeling a little better, thanks to all the well wishes. However, it is still hard to get the motivation to do anything around the house as I don't feel terrific...Heck, it's hard for me to be motivated when I'm feeling great, so you can understand the dilemma I face! That being said, I've just decided that it is going to take me another month or so until I get my act together, and I am fine with that...I just don't know that Danny shares the same sentiments...unfortunately, he doesn't have much choice in the matter! He's being very patient and understanding, though, I do have to say.
The kids are enjoying the new house and settling in pretty well. They are, however, missing our old neighborhood with the abundance of playmates. I told them today that it just takes a little time to get to know more people. They are being patient (as can be!)
We did go to a place called It'z today that was lots of fun. It was a Chuck E Cheese-ish place, but way better. We went with some new friends from our ward. The kids had a great time playing and I enjoyed visiting as well.
An update on the kids...
Jesse is getting excited about starting 1st grade. They begin school on the 20th of August...that means we only have a month left of summer! Bummer! He's really looking forward to making lots of friends.
Grace is loving having her own room. She will be even more excited when I can get it together enough to decorate!
Dylan is continuing his destructive behavior! The other day I got out of the shower to find that he had climbed up onto the counter in the kitchen, got hold of a knife and chopped all the bananas to smithereens. I was just grateful that there were no fingers included in the massacre! He's becoming quite the little independent kid, which has its pros and cons, but I am loving not having him attached to me at most times.
I was hesitant to put out another post without pictures, but I know that I enjoy updates with or without pics...hopefully my camera will decide to come home soon!
Tomorrow...10 great things about NM...stay tuned, I'm just too tired to do it now.
