We're here and doing fine!
Just thought I would get that out of the way since I've been a terrible blogger.
I'm not going to lie...the physical, emotional, and just plain logistical aspects of moving five states away from home, even when it's back to your former home state, are intense. I'm extremely tired and I couldn't figure out why in the world I was so exhausted until I remembered that I'll be twenty weeks present** this week. I've been so busy I literally keep forgetting I'm pregnant, and I wonder why I'm so out of breath from carrying Seth upstairs to bed and I curse how out of shape I am before I remember that baby Thor isn't helping matters.
**20 weeks present? See, this is how tired I am! Ridiculous.
Overall we're all doing good. I'm learning that when I'm stressed out I use up all my brain energy just making it through the day with the kids with all the details that entails along with getting my school work done and when the end of the day comes (which is generally the only time I blog), I can't remember what I was going to write about in the first place, let alone have the capacity for any real writing or humor.
I know that God has provided for us to be here for a time, and when I've doubted that it's been made clear to me over and over; and for that I'm thankful even when I'm being selfish and wishing to be home. Every day, though, we put down tiny little roots here, with every appointment I make and doctor and therapist I choose and school I consider. We're getting there. And I hope to get back to the random blogging of our day to day lives.
And this has been the most boring blog post ever, but I just wanted to let everyone know that we're still hanging in and doing well. The kids are doing great although I think they're all coming down with colds, which is unsurprising considering the change in weather, and Evany is teething like mad.
But this week? This week it's going to get up to fifty degrees. So that means it's going to be a good week, and I have faith in that.
